Sag Harbor Elementary School Kicks Off a New Year with BBQ



To welcome students back to school, Sag Harbor Elementary School hosted a fun-filled barbecue for students and their families on September 18.

The annual PTA-sponsored event featured barbequed burgers and hot dogs, as well as treats, including apples and chips.

“This is a great way to kick-off back to school and welcome students and their families back,” said Principal Matthew Malone.

The barbecue culminated with a musical concert by the band, “Keep the Beat,” which performed a variety of folk songs from around the world.

Other important dates for parents and students:

Back to School Night will be held on Thursday, September 24 at 7 p.m. at the elementary school, giving parents the opportunity to meet with their student’s teachers and get to know new classrooms and curriculum. A pre-kindergarten curriculum night will be held for those student’s parents on September 30 at 6 p.m. The first elementary school PTA meeting will be on October 1 at 3:30 p.m. in the elementary school library – officers are needed for that organization. On October 7, students at both Sag Harbor Elementary School and at Pierson Middle-High School will be invited to participate in “Don’t Press Send,” professional development for students and parents in grades 4 through 7. Events will take place during the day with a special presentation at Pierson at 7 p.m. that evening.
