Beautiful Days in Hampton Bays...

Hello Hampton Bays, and hello to these beautiful days! The school year may be coming to an end but we are busier than ever here at the elementary school! We have quite a few upcoming events, so be sure to mark your calendar.

On Wednesday, June 4th, our fourth graders will be going to the Jackson Pollack Museum in East Hampton. On Thursday, June 5th, first grade will be having their Field Day from 9 A.M. to 11 A.M. on the upper field. Kindergarten Round-Up takes place on Friday, June 6th where the elementary school gets to meet the incoming kindergarten class for the first time! Our fourth graders will be going on an exciting tour of the Middle School on Tuesday, June 10th. Our kindergartners get their moment in the sun on their Celebration/Field Day on Wednesday June, 11th. Second grade celebrates Flag Day with local veterans on Friday with a ceremony and brunch on Friday, June 13th. First grade will be going to the Aquarium in Riverhead on Monday, June 16th where they will get a chance to learn and discover all about marine life. It’s not June unless fourth grade has its Extreme Field Day at Red Creek Park and on June 18th, fourth graders will get a chance to show off their skills for all to enjoy. Third grade Field Day will take place on Thursday, June 19th. Finally, our fourth grade class will have its breakfast on Wednesday, June 25th.

Lastly, from everyone here at the elementary school, we would just like to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude to all who helped make this the best school year ever at Hampton Bays Elementary School! A special thanks to our P.T.A. for all of their hard work throughout the year, you are truly dedicated! We wish our fourth graders a wonderful summer and best of luck at the middle school next year. We also wish our students that will be returning next year a wonderful and safe summer! As always Hampton Bays, let’s be good to each other!


Each year, the Hampton Bays Elementary School participates in the Creative Writing Contest, sponsored by the Suffolk County Reading Council. This year we are proud to report that we had TWO winners in that contest. Josie Perl, from Mrs. DeRosa’s fourth grade reading class took 3rd place for her prose writing entitled “Books.” Christian Pensa, from Mrs. Sumwalt’s third grade reading class earned First Place for his prose writing “If I Were a Snowflake.” Christian was honored at a dinner on June 11th. Mr. Meyer, Mrs. Sumwalt, and the Pensa family were in attendance. Christian read his piece aloud. All students who place have their work included in the Reading Council’s annual journal. Congratulations to them both!
