Current Happenings At Guggenheim

Congratulations to all of the performers at Friday night's Talent Show!!! The Talent Show Committee had so much fun working with all of your children and watching them on the stage.  We were so impressed with their confidence, and wanted to thank you again for allowing them to participate in the talent show.   


We missed everyone who was sick and couldn't make it. We hope they are feeling better, and we look forward to seeing them at next year's show.  Please email  to arrange to pick up their trophy.

December Dancing Classrooms

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. 



Teepee Ted led second graders on a hands-on, in-house "field trip" right here at Guggenheim. The goal of the program is to help illustrate to the students in an educational and interactive way how Native American tribes lived, gathered food, and even enjoyed games many years ago on Long Island. 



First grade students traveled to Nassau Community College to watch a special school perfomance of  the children's classic "Free to Be You and Me." The play addressed issues of tolerance and diversity.


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.
