The Show Must Go On!

The Show Must Go On! thumbnail179796
Concert music in the district’s auditoriums may have been silenced this fall, but the COVID-19 pandemic was no match for music teachers who virtually shared videos, performance recordings and classroom projects with parents and the community during a virtual music showcase.

“The show must go on,” District Music Chairperson Victoria Hartman said. “By creating a Google classroom, parents and members of the community could listen to and view all of the wonderful music being made in our buildings.”

There were group and individual performances, as well as student artwork, which showcased the acquired skills of the district’s talented students. Ms. Hartman said the showcase was a huge success and that there are plans for a similar showcase this spring.

Masks have become the ultimate fashion statement during the Covid-19 pandemic. Bellport High School Art Club members, under the direction of adviser Lisa Conk, decided to make the latest fashion accessory in order to benefit the community.

Prior to the start of the holiday season, the students utilized the painting technique of marbling to create distinctive face masks. In aluminum trays, the student-artists chose distinctive paint colors to create aqueous surface designs and to produce patterns similar in appearance to marble or various types of stone. They then dipped the white fabric masks in the solution to create fashionable designs.

Ms. Conk said that the masks were being sold to benefit various community organizations. The art club hopes to replenish their art supplies so that they can continue to design and sell face masks this coming spring.

The Bellport High School Student Council hosted the annual Christmas in a Shoebox to benefit the South Country Central School District community’s young children.

Each year, the student council hosts a drive to collect gifts and toys for the impending holiday season. The members then gather to wrap the gifts in shoeboxes prior to being distributed throughout the community.

“This is our favorite activity for the community, and there is even more need during the pandemic,” adviser Ellen Hoffman said. “The student council really enjoys the opportunity to lift some of the burden. Everyone in the high school was so generous; faculty, staff and students really came through in this challenging time to help make the holidays happy.”

Bellport High School math teacher Amanda McCauley and social worker Ann Haddad also hosted a similar activity to benefit high school students this year. Faculty, staff and students were extremely generous with their donations of gifts that were included in gift boxes for secondary-level students struggling this holiday season.
