Junior high students are getting ready to put on a musical in the springtime – this year’s production will be “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Students auditioned before winter break and the roles were announced last week: Taylor Atwell will be playing Willy Wonka and Sophia Tucci will be playing Charlie.

Fourth graders recently learned about colonial times in Social Studies. Each classroom set up a “center” where all students took turns completing activities like building a home out of craft sticks, drawing a landscape, creating an old school-book, and learning about how kids in colonial times played and kept busy. In Writing Workshop, they’ve begun creating “informational books” all about this era and are busy researching and gathering facts.

Fourth graders enjoyed a Pajama Day recently where they even enjoyed hot chocolate donated by Bridgehampton Starbucks! A “Book Conversation” with hot chocolate was organized by teacher Mrs. McGrath, who asked Starbucks for the donation. “We had a book club with hot chocolate just like adults do with coffee,” she said. “Thanks to the Bridgehampton Starbucks for their donation!” 

The school is still collecting Box Tops to help raise money for the PTA! When you bring in Box Tops from food cartons you have at home, the school collects them and sends them to General Mills, who will then send the school a check.  Our school earns 10 cents per box top collected and this money goes toward funding different PTA-sponsored activities throughout the school year. Last year, we earned $800, and our goal is to beat that this year! Box tops can be given to your child’s teacher.

Junior High students had a “Game Show” pep rally last Friday. Students had the chance to participate in a trivia contest-game and compete in different challenges. The Game Show is an annual event and one that students always look forward to!

Also in junior high, students in health class recently learned how to prepare healthy snacks and also create natural remedies to combat colds and flu. The program is run by the Anna Lytton foundation and aims to teach students about health and wellness.

The eighth graders had a pancake breakfast fundraiser at the Springs fire department recently. They served over 175 pancakes and raised nearly $2,000! The money will go

The holidays were in full swing last week at Springs School. On Friday’s Spirit Meet, the last  before winter break, seventh grader Luke Baron performed some holiday music on piano. It was Luke’s last day of school before moving to Pennsylvania. Spirit Meet also featured a holiday celebration with teachers walking a pretend runway in their finest ugly sweaters! 


Fifth graders celebrated finishing writing their “feature articles” in their Journalism unit by each class creating a “café” where students could pop into and hear other students reading their pieces. There was hot chocolate and donuts to celebrate.
