Village School continued its tradition of hosting a schoolwide Thanksgiving feast as every student and every staff member was invited into the school gymnasium to enjoy turkey with all of the appropriate trimmings. More than 100 Village parents volunteered to serve those dining while students donned school spirit T-shirts. District central administrators were also invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with students and staff.

Staff members at Village Elementary School honored the brave men and women who have served our country by taking part in the Veterans Day 2017 Jeans for Troops fundraising drive. 

The drive supports the GI GO Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps veterans returning home find employment and gain access to health care, financial benefits and housing, where necessary. Village School’s Dollars for Denim campaign gave teachers and staff the opportunity to wear jeans on Thursday, Nov. 9 in exchange for a $5 donation to the GI GO Fund. Pictured are Jennie Purpura, Courtney Kane and Michelle Potvin modeling their Village tie-dye shirts and denim jeans. Great job, Village!

For more than 10 years, the students of Village Elementary School have been donating their leftover, unopened Halloween candy to numerous charitable organizations to benefit children who are less fortunate. Student council members helped to organize this year’s Operation Sweet Tooth event in the school gymnasium, sorting candy for distribution to local agencies that support children who are unable to enjoy the activities of Halloween due to life circumstance or illness.

Ten barrels were filled with the candy provided by the very generous Village children and their families, and they have since been distributed to organizations such as AHRC, Angela’s House and Mercy First. For the second consecutive year, primary grade students joined in the effort, working together to help sort candy with their upper-grade book buddies. Village students who were unable to participate in the sort, due to their own allergies or choice, made beautiful cards to accompany the treasure trove of candy.

As part of Operation Sweet Tooth, students participate in mathematical sorting, counting, grouping and graphing activities and estimate the amounts of candy collected. Special thanks to Eileen Hoffman and Wendy Tepper for organizing the activity and the Village School PTA’s Community Outreach committee for helping to distribute the candy.

 

 

Celebrating Diwali

Celebrating Diwali photo
Village Elementary School students recently learned about Diwali. The school lobby, hallways and cafeteria were colorfully decorated and students also learned about the cultural significance of Diwali, a religious celebration associated with Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism. Also known as the Festival of Lights, Diwali spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

Last year, the Syosset Board of Education recognized Diwali as an official school holiday, making Syosset the first school district on Long Island to close its doors in observance of the holiday. School will be closed on Thursday October 19 for Diwali.
