Easing the Transition


In an effort to ease the transition to their new buildings, Copiague Middle School and Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School hosted an orientation and barbecue for sixth-grade and ninth-grade students on Aug. 30 and 31.

The incoming classes were welcomed administrators, received their schedule and took a brief tour of the building. The students also received their locker combination and were given an opportunity to test their lockers.

Sponsored by the PTSA, the students and their families enjoyed hot dogs, chips and soda and some time to reconnect with their friends during the day.
