Students in Ms. Baird’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School recently created their own kindness monster creations. After reading “The Monster Who Lost His Mean” by Tiffany Strelitz Haber, the students came up with different ways they could be kind in their classroom, school and at home. They made kindness monster headbands and wore them throughout the day.

Weather Doesn’t Dampen Spirits for Copiague’s First Day

It may have been cloudy skies and heavy rain, but the weather didn’t dampen the mood of the students and staff at Copiague School District, who were still in good spirits as they entered their respective buildings for the first day of school on Sept. 10.

Faculty, staff and administrators were on hand to welcome students back to their buildings as the buses pulled into the circle. Loaded with back-to-school supplies and ready to kick off a new school year, students made their way to their classrooms and met their new teachers. Incoming kindergartners and sixth graders had the opportunity to explore their new buildings and navigate the hallways.

Many students were happy to reconnect with old friends and classmates. Whether learning in-person or remotely, students settled back into a routine by the end of the school day.
