Safety Town

Safety Town1

Minnesauke Elementary School students learned important safety rules and stayed active as they worked to navigate a giant obstacle course on scooters during this year’s Safety Town.

For the event, the entire gym was transformed into a mini-town, complete with road signs and activity stations, such as a fitness center, hockey station and carwash. In addition to learning about the rules of the road, the students were also able to practice using an emergency exit through a large cutout wooden bus.

While on the scooters, the students were required to follow proper driving rules, including obeying stop signs and yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks.

Sending Holiday Wishes to Soldiers

Holiday Wishes to Soldiers

In an effort to spread holiday cheer to those serving our country, fifth-graders in Kate Hunter's class at Minnesauke Elementary School participated in the AdoptaPlatoon initiative.

The students created cards and wrote inspiring messages to military personnel who are deployed from Fort Campbell, Kentucky to Iraq. The troops will receive these cards attached to a box of candy canes, which the students hope will help to raise morale and put a smile on each service member’s  face.

Making Moves

Minnesauke Elementary School students recently learned about a fun and challenging way to stay active during a fitness program called Kerboomkidz.

During the PTA-sponsored workshop, founder and instructor Kershel Anthony taught the students a high-paced dance routine. The energetic exercise program kept them moving from start to finish and left them excited about a new fitness alternative.

Lifesaving Blood Drive at Minnesauke

Minnesauke Elementary School sixth-graders recently helped to put a dent in the national blood shortage by coordinating a blood drive at their school in November.

Prior to the drive, the students spoke with representatives from the New York Blood Center and learned about blood donation. The conversations were connected to the students’ science curriculum and focused on the components of blood, how it circulates in the body and who makes an ideal blood donor.

During the event, the students volunteered as “little doctors,” assisting donors with filling out their paperwork and serving post-donation drinks and snacks.  

As a result of the outpouring of support, Minnesauke collected a total of 36 pints of blood to assist those who may need it in an emergency or for people who require long-term treatment.
