Thank you to our VERY generous community!!! Because of your donations the food pantries will be stocked just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday for so many in need. At the high school, Elana Axelrod and Dr. Beth Chase spearheaded the Social Action Club's Thanksgiving Food Drive. The High School Spanish club collected non-perishable Hispanic foods in a Canasta Familiar (family basket) to donate, and Señora Coniglio and Señora Segura are very proud of the tremendous effort the students put into this food collection.
A little Happy Thanksgiving “Where’s Waldo” fun from Ms. Gianna Andreacchi’s students at Goosehill. These clever creations were posted along the hallway as students pass by to see “I’m not a turkey, I’m a gumball machine!” Some other very clever disguises include Hannah Montana, a bowl of popcorn, a bat, an ice cream cone and even the Greatest Showman on Earth! You can’t help but smile!
At the CPC (Central Parent Council) meeting on Nov. 18, which was held outdoors due to the spectacular weather, parents learned a great deal about keeping kids safe and healthy in the digital world.

Every year Goosehill first graders love to cheer up veterans by sharing kindness and thankfulness with a handwritten card. These notes are sent to the Northport Veterans Medical Center for veterans in the hospital to thank them for all they have sacrificed. The cards are decorated with colorful flags to deliver happiness and joy. Thank you to Ms. Villa’s class for showing us their amazing notecards.
Goosehill first grade art students were inspired by work of artist and environmentalist, Andy Goldsworthy. Combining art and science, Ms. Cirino needed only to look out the window at the beautiful autumn colors of the leaves as she asked her students and taught them “why do leaves change colors?” The students used a wide variety of art techniques and materials for this mixed-media artwork.
Goosehill Kindergarten and 1st grade students learned about voting this November. Students participated in a vote hosted by PebbleGo, an online database geared towards K-3rd grade students. Students learned facts about cats and about dogs and then made a choice about which they thought was the better pet. Students then created persuasive posters to try to convince people to vote for their favorite.
On October 22, Goosehill students enjoyed a Spirit Day assembly outdoors at the amphitheater. All year long, students practice being a “Superhero,” but when they meet one it’s very exciting! Being a Superhero means following the acronym HERO; Honesty, Empathy, Respect, and Open-Heartedness. Two very special police officers spoke to the students about how they help people every day.
