Honored for Community Service

Throughout the school year, Minnesauke’s Kids Care Club has been volunteering countless hours to assist a wide variety of causes in both the local and global community. That effort has earned them the 2016 Youth Bureau Volunteer Award from the Town of Brookhaven Youth Board and Supervisor Edward Romaine.

From putting together packages for organizations like Meals on Wheels to creating patriotic pieces for the Long Island State Veterans Home, the club of more than 60 members has been extremely active during its bimonthly meetings. With the help of their advisors – Minnesauke Library Information Specialist Taylor Kinsley and Minnesauke PTA Co-president Stephyne Guthy – the second- through fourth-graders are working to make a difference in the world.

The club was presented with the award during a special reception at Town Hall in May.

“[The students in] this impressive group…have recognized at a very young age how important it is to give back and help others both in and outside of the community,” said Town Councilwoman Valerie Cartright. “By constantly seeking innovative ways to make a difference, they have succeeded in uplifting the human spirit.

Undoubtedly, the lessons they have learned and their desire to help others will continue to play an influential role in Brookhaven Town for many years to come.”


Pitch-Perfect Performances


Student-musicians from Minnesauke and Nassakeag elementary schools had the chance to showcase their talents on the regional stage when they took to center field and performed at the Long Island Ducks Stadium this May. The crowd was in awe of their abilities and greeted them with boisterous rounds of applause.

Family Fun

Nearly 250 Minnesauke Elementary School students in grade 3-5 and their families enjoyed an evening of entertainment during this April’s Minnesauke Family Fun Night fundraiser.  

During the event, students participated in a variety of carnival type games for the chance to win prizes in the gymnasium and enjoyed face painting, dancing and snacks in the cafeteria.

Upon arriving at the event, attendees made donations to a worthy cause – more than $1,000 and many nonperishable food items were gifted to benefit local families in need.

Art Displayed at Capitol

Original artwork created by Minnesauke Elementary School fourth-grader Ava Bavlnka was selected for showcase during this year’s Dr. King Children’s Essay and Fine Arts Display in Albany.

Ava’s drawing was of Dr. King embracing the Earth with the saying “Everything that is done in the world, is done by hope.” The piece also included the words “love, hope, peace, loyal, unity, kindness, respectful and stand strong” surrounding the shape of a heart.

Annually, this contest receives more than 4,000 submissions from 240 schools statewide. Entries include student essays, drawings, painting, sculpture and photography based on Dr. King’s six principals of nonviolence. Selected pieces are played on display on the concourse of the Empire State Plaza in Albany for one week prior to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

According to the state’s website, the event is hosted to encourage students to learn more about Dr. King, his nonviolent philosophy and its application to current issues as well as empower students to pursue change through nonviolent methods.
