Sag Harbor Elementary School fourth-graders in Libby Lattanzio’s class are spreading goodwill throughout the month of December using kindness calendars.

The colorful calendars feature daily kindness tasks the students are encouraged to complete, either individually or as a class. Through the first few weeks of December, they have already written happy notes for someone special, performed helpful tasks for others, and shared positive words of encouragement. As noted by Ms. Lattanzio, the calendar parallels the school year’s theme: “Sag Harbor Sparkles – Kindness Counts.”

Sag Harbor Second-Graders Perform Holiday Classic

Wearing bright holiday colored hats and smiles, Sag Harbor Elementary School second-graders performed Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for family and friends on December 7.

Working for weeks to learn lyrics and blocking, the production featured several musical numbers, including “Welcome Christmas” and “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” Each class also took turns acting out and narrating the storyline.

Putting their own talents on display for family and friends, first-graders and third-graders will hosted their own special holiday performances on December 13 and December 18, respectively. All three productions are part of the Performing Arts program in which students learn about public speaking, play production, set design, script writing and revision, as well as singing and choreography.
