Red Ribbon Week, which focuses on healthy choices, is coming to a close for Pierson Middle School students. Activities have focused on a different theme each day. Today’s focus is healthy hobbies. Tomorrow, students will wear colors assigned to them for a color war in the gym. 

The Sag Harbor School Board will have a business meeting on Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Pierson library. 



At the Bridgehampton School, a recent collaboration with the Stony Brook Trauma Center, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, and members of Bridgehampton’s emergency medical services helped provide faculty and staff members with lifesaving skills to use in an emergency. As part of the nationwide Stop the Bleed campaign, school personnel are now trained and equipped in case of an emergency involving bleeding.

Three Bridgehampton students and their coach, Vinny Alversa, are celebrating wins along with their teams in Brookhaven Town’s fall baseball championships. Kris and Scott Vinski played for the Bonac 14-and-under team, and Kai Alversa played for the East End Tomahawks, an 11-and-under team. 

Earlier this month, the school’s concert band performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Bridgehampton Museum’s annual antique car rally.
