First grade students in Ms. Law’s and Ms. Miller’s classes at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School in the Bayport-Blue Point School District are learning how a calendar is set up. During their count down for the holiday season, the students added one cotton ball to Santa’s beard each day on their personal calendars to count the days until the holiday break. 

Additionally, speech pathologist Ms. Katz has been teaching Sylvan Avenue students about the history of the ugly Christmas sweater. Students volunteered to make ugly Christmas sweater ornaments to hang on a tree in Ms. Katz’s office to celebrate the holidays. The school also honored the tradition of wearing their own gaudy Christmas sweaters.
