Players from the NY Islanders visited grades 3-5; first graders saw a performance of "Free to be You and Me"; the second grade participated in an interactive Native American experience; and the fifth grade is learning how to ballroom dance. These programs, and many more, are funded through your HSA contributions. Thank you for supporting our school!
Excitement was in the air when two players from the New York Islanders visited Guggeheim on Nov. 14! Cal Clutterbuck and Josh Bailey spoke to students in grades 3-5 about the importance of teamwork and working hard in school. Guggenheim was chosen to particpate in Islanders School Day because of the ways we've helped out our community though our coat drives, hurricane relief efforts, UNICEF collection, Thanksgiving Baskets and Holiday Gift Drives.
Dancing Classrooms is back at Guggenheim! The entire fifth grade participates in this 10-week program designed to build self-confidence, respect for others, social awareness, increased physical and emotional well-being, cooperative teamwork with the opposite gender, and appreciation of the world’s cultural diversity. Stay tuned for their big performance in December!
Port Washington taxpayers currently fund 89 percent of the cost of public education through real estate property taxes and assessments -- while our district receives only 6 percent in state aid compared to the average aid statewide of 41.6 percent. Our PW Board of Education and Parents Council are working together on a Legislative Task Force to get Port Washington its equitable share of state funding.
