Emanuel Lutheran School|
179 East Main St.
The 5th-Middle School students at Emanuel Lutheran School in Patchogue recently returned from a fun-filled three day education trip to the Frost Valley YMCA camp in Claryville, New York, where they spent time learning about science in a unique, hands-on way. The children hiked to waterfalls, climbed cable bridges and rock walls, canoed, and pressed their own apple cider. The much-anticipated annual trip helps the students round out their science curriculum by allowing the students to explore a host of environmental issues in real world settings. Once they return home from camp, the team building games, historical stories and activities, group discussions, and cooperative learning opportunities from the YMCA help to make the trip applicable to many different facets of the student's lessons throughout the year.

Emanuel Students "Stuff A Bus!"
Shoppers at the King Kullen Supermarket on Sunrise Highway in Patchogue recently helped students from Emanuel Lutheran School "stuff a bus" with canned goods for Thanksgiving food baskets for needy community residents. The students gathered the donated goods in grocery carts as shoppers exited the store, and loaded the food into the school's bus to bring back to fill this year's baskets. More than twice the number of families have requested help this year from Emanuel Lutheran Church and School's social ministry committee, and the students would like to extend their thanks to Patchogue shoppers for helping them provide food for local families in need. Additional donations can be dropped off at the school through the end of November.

The students at Emanuel Lutheran School in Patchogue recognized "International Day of Peace" this year with a unique "Pinwheels for Peace" program that brought the entire preschool through middle school population together to pray for the United States. Joining other schools across the country in making handmade pinwheels for this day of remembrance, the students crafted pinwheels of varying materials, writing messages of peace and hope on the points of the pinwheels before planting the colorful creations in the front gardens of the school. The students also offered prayers for our troops and for our country throughout the day. In preparation for the Pinwheel project, the students also had a special chapel assembly led by Pat Manganaro, an Honor Flight veteran who spoke to the students about his trip to the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. Following the presentation, the students joined together to create lunch bags to be used for veterans on future Honor Flight trips to our nation's capitol.
