The incoming sixth grade class at Copiague Middle School was welcomed back to school for orientation day on Aug. 30.
Parents or guests were invited to join the students in an open-house format, where they were greeted by teachers and Principal Andrew Lagnado. After finding their way to their respective homerooms, students toured the building and got acquainted with their schedules. National Junior Honor Society students were on hand to help with navigating the hallways.
The students found their lockers and reconnected with their classmates. Meeting their homeroom teachers and walking through the building gave the students an opportunity to feel a bit more at ease when they walked through the doors for the first day of school.
Incoming kindergartners had the opportunity to get a first peek at their buildings, meet with their teachers and connect with their new classmates during orientations at Susan E. Wiley, Great Neck Road, Deauville Gardens East and Deauville Gardens West elementary schools in the Copiague School District on Aug. 26.
At each respective elementary school, students and their parents received a brief overview of the district’s curriculum, what to expect in kindergarten and the school’s policies and procedures. In an effort to alleviate some first day of school jitters, the students saw their classrooms, and toured the building to familiarize themselves with their new routines in September.
