Dressed in polar bear hats and white shirts, kindergartners at Aquebogue Elementary School displayed their knowledge of the Arctic during a culminating “Pat the Polar Bear” show, starring Principal Bryan Miltenberg and Assistant Principal Gary Karlson. 

The interactive show capped off the students’ learning about polar bears and their environment, habitats and life cycles through interdisciplinary lessons and report writing.

During the show, students were encouraged to help Pat the Polar Bear, who has been living in the basement of Aquebogue Elementary School, assimilate back into his natural habitat by providing him with vital information about the Arctic. By the time the students had shared all the information they had learned, Pat was prepared to head back to his home up north.
