May Moore Students Predict a Long Winter


Prior to Groundhog Day, curious students at May Moore wondered if there would be six more weeks of winter or an early spring. They made their predictions and compared them to the findings of four famous groundhogs.

On Feb. 2, both Punxsutawney Phil and Holtsville Hal saw their shadows, signifying a long winter. Contrary to these findings, Malverne Mel and Staten Island Chuck predicted an early spring.

“Our students agreed with a long winter, which translates to more sledding,” said Principal Alicia Konecny.
