Westhampton Beach Elementary School students were full of kind words on Valentine’s Day as they completed a variety of educational projects. They made giant hearts filled with compliments to give to their classmates, designed Valentine’s Day cards and, at the kindergarten level, worked on their writing skills by drawing on hearts using the “at” word family, such as cat, bat, sat, and sight words.

History came alive for Westhampton Beach Elementary School fourth graders on Jan. 24 as they learned more about the life and history of Native Americans through Journeys into American Indian Territory, an annual program sponsored by the PTA.

The students heard from program representatives and explored a Native American museum set up in the school’s gymnasium. The museum featured numerous Native American artifacts, including clothing, dolls, pottery and a replica of a longhouse. They also played traditional Native American games and took turns making corn flour.

Westhampton Beach Elementary School fifth graders awed peers, family and friends as the curtain rose on their recent musical production of “Joust!”

The show, written by John Jacobson and Roger Emerson and directed by music teacher Alexandra Gogas, sent the message that problems can be solved by coming together in peace. 

“I really liked this show for this fifth grade class,” said Gogas. “It matched their personalities and musical abilities.”  

The fifth graders worked after school for several weeks to perfect their performance.

Students in grades 3-5 at Westhampton Beach Elementary School rang in the new year by exploring new books during a “book tasting” event cooked up by school librarian Joy Campagna. 

As an authentic touch, the school’s library was transformed into a restaurant, complete with artificial candlelight, classical music and a menu featuring a variety of book genres. Students were encouraged to “taste” new books and take one home to devour.  

“Students left the library with books they never knew were on the shelves,” said Campagna. “They learned that you don’t know whether you like something until you try it.”
