I promise to be an honest, hard working student

To respect people and property
To take pride in our school
To be a role model for fellow students
And to be a good citizen at all times
During a recent Project Lead the Way lesson, second graders in Barbara Haining’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School had to design different structures using just popsicle sticks. Using the grooved sticks, the students created rural and urban structures. The lesson was part of an English language arts and social studies unit on the three community types: rural, urban and suburban.
Students in Mrs. Haining and Mrs. Patel’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School spent the month of December growing the Grinch’s heart by showing random acts of kindness and displaying their acts on hearts for their wall. On Grinch Day, they participated in different English language arts, math and word study activities related to the character. The class also had a special visit from Frosty the Snowman. All hearts grew at Mills Pond Elementary School this holiday season.
First graders at Mills Pond Elementary School centered their reading and writing lessons in early November around Veterans Day. After reading about veterans and their courage and bravery, the students wrote thank-you letter to local veterans. They thanked them for keeping us safe and helping to protect our country. Their letters were delivered to the Northport VA Medical Center.
