June 26th, Kids Clean the Beaches

6/27 update; Yesterday’s STB Kids Clean up was a huge success.

Parents and kids alike picked up garbage for about 2 hours!
It certainly made an impact although far from complete.
(Join our next one!)
Kids, along with parents worked hard and enthusiastically cleaning up those little beaches!
It was great to see the wide variety of ages as well.

A special thanks to Mom’s & Dad’s for teaching
that keeping our beaches clean is important now and for generations to come.

6/1; Come on down to the Oak Beach Community Center with your Family. Trash Pails and Kid Gloves provided. Help clean up our community beaches while spending some great outdoor time with your Kids.

Please RSVP to marybethschappert@gmail.com

Cardboard Boat Regatta

We held our first annual Babylon Jr. Sr. High School Cardboard Boat Regatta at the Gilgo Beach Marina on Thursday, May 26th.

FullSizeRender_5

Students enrolled in the district’s new STEAM and Project Based Learning Courses were invited to research, design, and engineer cardboard boats that could hold 2 passengers and sail the length of the Gilgo Beach floating docks.

Boats could only be made out of cardboard and duct tape and awards were given out for ‘best design’, ‘most school spirit’, ‘best sinking’, and the ‘most creative’ boat.

The Bunger Surf Shop donated wetsuits for the students to use, the Gilgo Beach Inn made the students lunch, and Save the Beaches patrolled the marina with Town of Babylon Marine Patrol officers.
