Students in Claire Urizzo’s class at Hampton Bays Elementary School practiced and memorized multiplication problems through a creative, spring-themed project. Each student received a paper flower and a multiplication problem. They were then challenged to make an array, skip count, and show repeated addition and equal groups related to the problem on each petal of the flower. They also wrote out the commutative property of the equation in the center of the flower. Every student had a different multiplication problem and the opportunity to be creative in decorating their flower as they worked on solving their equation.

A Southampton Town Highway Department snowplow now bears the name “The Baymen” after a fourth grade student from Hampton Bays Elementary School won a highway department contest to name the plow.

Valerie Barrios’ name was selected from over 400 entries by children across the town, which were made during several town-sponsored events. Barrios proudly submitted a name that represents her school.

On May 3, Hampton Bays students saw the plow decked out with its new name when Superintendent of Highways Charles McArdle drove it to the school. McArdle also gave students a tour of the vehicle and explained how it works.

The highway department plans to host the contest annually, giving students a chance to rename the plow.
