Gingerbread Time for Connetquot First-graders and Families   thumbnail146732

With a little help from visiting parents and grandparents, first-graders at East Islip’s Connetquot Elementary School had seasonal fun for the second year in a row, building and decorating gingerbread houses on Dec. 18 and 19.

"It was great to see the kids having so much fun decorating their houses," said Principal Nicholas Bilotti. "Not only was it delicious, but they also learned about STEAM topics of science and math, and used art and design ideas. It was also great to see the parents have a friendly competition for who could build the 'best' house. Most importantly, everyone went home happy....and full!"
