Bayport-Blue Point School District’s fourth-grade PIE classes joined countless others worldwide by partnering with the Odyssey Angels organization this year. The group, a subdivision of the Odyssey of the Mind, is aimed at bettering lives of those in local communities through service learning projects.
For their effort, the classes focused on recycling and creating interactive events to assist their peers in the LEAP program develop their social skills. Using recycled materials, the students created original, artistic bottle cap magnets, which they sold to raise funds to create a socialization club. The proceeds from the sale – more than $150 – were utilized to create two events.

During the first program, the PIE and LEAP classes worked together to create birdfeeders for the schools’ courtyards using recycled materials. With the help of high school psychologist Dayna Russo and high school art teacher Frank Salino, the second event featured bowling using recycled water bottles, sand art stations and a face painting table, which was run by high school students Craig Lignelli and Jaclyn Ageloff.
