    The Oysterponds  School is the designated emergency shelter for Orient/Orient Pt. residents and the Greenport School is the designated emergency shelter for East Marion Residents.  We truly hope that we never need to use them, but it is always good to have a plan in place.  Experts tell us to be prepared to survive for up to 72 hours before outside help arrives.  Prepare a shelter kit to bring with you to include the following: 1) Change of clothing, rain gear, sturdy shoes, 2) Toiletries and personal items, medications, 3) Blankets or sleeping bag and pillow, 4) Identification, 5) Games, toys, books, 6) Special items for infants or elderly, 6) Non-perishable foods, 7) Sufficient water for 3 days, 8) Cell phone, flash light, extra batteries.  Thanks to the Red Cross, we have a supply of cots and blankets readily available.

Welcome to Intermediate 2!

 Dear Parents,

We’re really into the swing of things in our classroom. During reading and writing, we’re just finishing up our humorous fictions novels. We have learned about character traits, writing summaries, how the setting is important in the novel, and how the character can change throughout the story. In writing we’re now writing country reports. Each child is researching a different country and writing about 3 different main ideas, such as places to go, foods to eat, geography, sports to play, etc.

In social studies we’re still learning about Mesopotamia. We learned how the Sumerians settled in the Fertile Crescent, because the land was fertile due to the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers flooding. We also learned that Sumerians believed in many gods and worshipped them at a temple in the center of town called a Ziggurat. We will be building Ziggurats in class.

In Science we are starting our Peconic Estuary Project. On Friday, October 20th, we will be going down to Narrow River Road to participate in the project. We will be learning more about our waterways and testing how clean they’re. All our welcome to join us on that day from 9 AM to around noon! A bus will drop us off, but then we will be walking back to the school.

On Thursday, October 19th, we will be going down to Narrow River Road to participate in an archeological dig. Various artifacts will be hidden in the sand, by teachers. Students will need to uncover the artifacts and determine how they might of been used. Again, for this trip we will be dropped off by a bus, and then will walk back to the school.

Reminder, Museum of Natural History field trip in New York City is on Wednesday, October 25th.
