The evening included music from the high school jazz band, a buffet dinner and a presentation of plaques from each student to their teachers. As we close out a very successful year with the Explorers Club, we wanted to remember and honor our servicemen and women. As a nation, we recognize the sacrifice of those who have died to protect us on Memorial Day - Monday, May 30, The Explorers Club drew, colored, and created a banner as their way of expressing their gratitude.

Special thanks to all of the Grade 3 students who joined us and to all of the Bethpage High School students who assisted the staff in running the festival! It was a great success! After-school hours continue to be busy ones for the students in the Explorers Club!
