Blue Point Elementary School students took advantage of the fine weather by taking their classroom studies outside for Outdoor Classroom Day.

Instead of academic studies taking place inside the school’s four walls, students rotated throughout the day to participate in activities and lessons outside in the playground area. Students learned the art of tie-dye, read books in the school’s reading patio, performed science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics activities and physical education lessons on the school playground.

Not only did the students and teachers enjoy being out of the classroom, getting outside shed a new light on their learning.

The Royal Theater at Blue Point Elementary School, under the direction of Mrs. V. Latino and Mr. A. Murphy, presented two stellar performances of “The Return of the Glass Slipper” to peers and parents on May 11.

Colorful, elegant costumes and rich musical numbers punctuated the already masterful performances of the 17-member cast who reenacted a classical “Cinderella” tale that took place in a magical village surrounding the royal castle of King Rupert and Queen Philomena. The lords and ladies of 2L captured the imagination of the audience as they told anew the story of downtrodden Cinderella’s eventual union with Prince Albert, a feel-good fairytale that has resonated throughout generations.

The district congratulates the students on this outstanding and memorable accomplishment.
