School News: Family Trees in Sag Harbor, Shakespeare at Hayground



Family Trees at Sag Harbor Elementary School

Sag Harbor Elementary School first-graders in Wendy Turbush’s class recently completed a family tree project that culminated with an in-class presentation. For the project, students worked with their families to create family trees that included photos and family history. The project celebrates the differences among students and their families.

 Shakespeare at The Hayground School

Last Monday, The Hayground School’s annual residency with Shakespeare & Co. began. All students in the nursery, pre-kindergarten through junior high school are involved in the production, which will be “Romeo & Juliet” this year. Performances will be at Guild Hall on Main Street in East Hampton on Thursday, December 15 at 1 and 6 p.m.

In order to become more familiar with the characters and the story, the student actors listened and acted out various scenes while they enjoyed participating in a variety of acting exercises. On Tuesday, the students placed requests for roles and amount of lines. By the end of the week students will receive their scripts and roles.

On Saturday, December 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., The Hayground School gymnasium will be the site for the 5th Annual Artisanal Food and Craft Bazaar, “Homegrown For The Holidays”. There will be raffles and live music.
