Mixing up Thanksgiving treats


Minnesauke Elementary School second-graders in Michael Licausi’s class and Brian Harvey’s sixth-grade class recently used their math and culinary skills to create tasty Thanksgiving treats for the residents living at Echo Arms Adult Home in Port Jefferson Station.

With the help of their class moms, the students stirred together batter for homemade pumpkin bread and filled more than 50 bread tins with the mixture. As a result of the class’ effort, the students were able to create enough loaves to ensure that each resident would receive their own tasty care package.

In addition, to further ensure the holiday was a festive one at the facility, the sixth-graders also made large decorative “Happy Thanksgiving” signs and colorful placemats.
