A Fairy Tale to Remember

A Fairy Tale to Remember Pic 1

It was a royal affair to remember as second-graders at Dogwood Elementary School held a Fairy Tale Ball on May 23.

As a culminating activity in their study of fairy tales, the students dressed as their favorite fairy tale characters for the occasion. After spending weeks learning about the characteristics of fairy tales, writing different endings to fairy tales and analyzing the characters, the second-graders performed their fairy tales for invited guests.

Five students from Dogwood Elementary School – Ryan Gaudy, Giovanni Bertone, Emily Lam, Nathaniel Philippou and Jack Melore – recently participated in the Suffolk County Math Tournament at Stony Brook University. Dogwood students matched their math skills with other students from across Suffolk County in a day filled with both individual and team contests. More than 250 students participated in this event, which tested their vast knowledge of math to solve a series of challenging problems. Melore received a trophy for scoring in the top 10.

A Nursery Rhyme Adventure

Kindergartners at Dogwood Elementary School recently performed “An Adventure in Mother Goose Land” for fellow students and their families. In the story, Mother Hubbard’s dog loses his bone and she, along with Mother Goose, asks a succession of different characters if they have seen it. At the end of the play, the bone is found in the grandfather clock from “Hickory Dickory Dock.”

In celebration of Earth Day, fourth-grade students at Dogwood Elementary School decorated Trader Joe's brown paper grocery bags with Earth Day slogans. A selection of bags was displayed at the Lake Grove Trader Joe's location.

Fifth-Grade Play

Dogwood fifth grade students recently performed an original musical production titled “It's More Than Just Apples and Dresses”. The play is based upon an adaptation created from two wonderful pieces of literature, Madonna’s book, Mr. Peabody’s Apples and a book by Eleanor Estes entitled, The Hundred Dresses. The students did a marvelous job of performing and singing in these two plays. The main character education messages being sent to our students involve the harmful practice of spreading rumors and the ramifications of judging others by their names and their clothing.
