Community Helpers photo  thumbnail120796
The third grade social studies class went on a walking trip to the Town of Southampton’s Highway Departments’ Bridgehampton “Barn” to learn about our community and how it is kept safe and clean. On the way, students wore safety gloves, hard hats and vests and collected garbage along the route. Once they arrived, they received a demonstration lesson on safety and had the opportunity to sit in different equipment including the Town’s bulldozer, sidewalk sweeper, and plow truck. Students completed different activities, including hammering, shoveling, digging and learned how to properly use a screwdriver, a rake and a wheelbarrow. They were complimented on their efforts to and from the job site on their help in keeping our community clean and they truly had a great time! Highway Superintendent Mr. Alex Gregor provided Mister Softee Ice Cream as a special treat and as a thanks to the students for helping out the Highway Department. Thank you to Mr. and Ms. Harrison for coordinating the details of this educational event for our students.
