The Bayport-Blue Point School District would like to congratulate three fifth-graders from Sylvan Avenue Elementary School for being named finalists in the Patchogue Elks Club annual essay contest.

As part of their social studies curriculum, the entire fifth grade wrote essays this past January surrounding the topic “Our Veterans, Our Heroes.” As a result of their entries, Kaelyn Walsh, Nicolette Diemer and Madison Philipson were named the first-place winner, first runner-up and third-place winner, respectively.

These students received a certificate from representatives of the Patchogue Elks Club, along with small tokens of appreciation for their efforts.
