"Little Fish" a big hit!

March 31, 2023

Local artist Susan Buroker brought her interactive “Little Fish” puppet show to Accompsett Elementary School on March 31.


“Little Fish” is an interactive SCUPPET (large scale sculptured, puppet) performance, showcasing, the effects, nitrogen pollution has on aquatic life.

“This performance needs to be at every school on Long Island,” High School West science teacher Kimberly Williams exclaimed.

She and her marine ecology students along with Lauren Hoffman’s Environmental Club students, as well as Accompsett Middle School science teacher Amy Olander and her Science Club joined forces to help second graders make sock puppet fish to model some of the residents of their local waters.
District Director of Science Dr. Stephanie O’Brien also made sock puppets with the students.

“Being part of the performance invests the students to protect the sound,” Ms. Williams said. “All of the students wanted to get the message out.”
