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.
Excitement filled the air as the Copiague School District students made their way into the buildings for the start of the 2021-2022 school year on Sept. 2. The district’s youngest students were accompanied off their buses and guided to their classrooms. Administrators were front and center at the buildings to welcome the students back. The sixth and ninth graders quickly got acquainted with their new buildings and schedules as well. Students reconnected with their classmates and built new friendships as well. As the day went on, students eased into their new schedules and routines and settled in for a productive year ahead.
