Arrowhead Elementary School fifth- and sixth-grade students took to the stage this spring to showcase their theatrical talents in a production of “Willy Wonka Jr.”

The students brought to life the familiar story about a boy’s journey through a mystical chocolate factory. The more than 50 cast members, including stage crew, rehearsed for the production’s debut since October under the leadership of co-directors Melissa Anderson and Paul Mueller.

In addition to the evening performance for families, the students presented a daytime show for the entire school.

Vocalists Volunteer

Arrowhead Elementary School’s sixth-grade chorus lent their melodic voices to a worthy cause this spring as they raised funds and donations for the Stony Brook Children’s Hospital pediatric cancer unit.

The students collected 53 DVDs and $485 in iTunes gift cards to be donated to the children receiving both inpatient and outpatient pediatric cancer treatment at the hospital.

The group was inspired to organize the fundraiser after they started preparing the song “Truly Brave” for the school’s spring concert. The song was featured on the “Today” show’s “Shine a Light” series and performed by Cyndi Lauper and Sara Bareilles to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer. The students were so moved by the song's intent that they came up with the idea for the fundraiser.

Going Green

The district’s elementary schools teamed up to compete in a Waste Free Day challenge in celebration of Earth Day.

The schools worked to reduce the amount of waste collected during each of the school’s lunch periods. Students and staff were encouraged to bring lunch in reusable containers and limit the amount of utensils and paper goods used during the mealtime.

The winner of the first ever challenge was Arrowhead Elementary School, which reduced its overall garbage waste my 50 percent or three large garbage pails. As a result, the school was presented with a commemorative trophy and Principal Marisa Redden sported a green wig and cape the following school day.

Special thanks to Dr. Mandel's art class from R.C. Murphy Junior High School for crafting the trophy, which was made from recycled materials.



A Bench for Buddies

Arrowhead Elementary School students have a new way to make friends during recess thanks to alumna Emma Stevens, who created three buddy benches for the school as part of a Girl Scout Silver Award project.

Buddy benches are a growing movement in schools across the nation and are placed around playground areas. The concept aims to promote inclusion and kindness by allowing those looking for a friend to play with a place to sit. Students who see a peer sitting upon these benches are encouraged to invite the individual to join their activity.

“I can recall times from my early elementary years when I would have liked to have a buddy bench to use – I think anyone can,” said Emma. “It feels good to give back to my old school; I have great memories from my time here.”

Emma, a current eighth-grader at R.C. Murphy Junior High School, presented the bright yellow painted benches during three grade-level, ribbon-cutting ceremonies. During the first ceremony, Brookhaven Supervisor Edward Romaine and Councilwoman Valerie Cartright declared the occasion Emma Stevens’ Day in the town.
