It is the mission of Copiague Middle School faculty and staff to create an educational atmosphere in which each student is provided with the opportunity to realize their full potential as students, athletes, artists, musicians, and individuals through personal attention and encouragement. The curriculum in the middle school has been developed to challenge and stimulate the minds of students in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, while remaining responsive to the needs of each student during the transition from childhood to adolescence.
Since its inception the team teaching approach has benefited students and faculty alike, providing additional outlets and experiences for each student. In addition, the nearly 1,200 students enrolled in Copiague Middle School are provided with a wealth of opportunities to develop as individuals by participating in student government, athletics, clubs, student organizations, class trips, community service, peer mentoring, and many schoolwide events.
By promoting each student's self-confidence, respect for others, and avoiding standardized solutions, the faculty and staff at Copiague Middle School have been successful at establishing an effective school community that is truly centered on the student.
Copiague Middle School students are hard at work in their math lessons this December. Sixth graders in Mr. Kounadis’ class are using the online program GoMath and Chromebooks to apply ratios and rates.
Eighth grade math students in Mr. Radziewicz and Mrs. Jones’ class are also working with online programs. They are graphing equations using GeoGebra, a program where they enter linear equations that are graphed online. The students then have to convert the equations to solve the problem using algebra.
Seventh grade students in Mrs. Horigan’s class and Mrs. Ramirez’s class are practicing two-step equations. As a mini review of their lessons, the students did a scavenger hunt around the classroom to match up the equations with the answers.
Setting their students up for success in their future careers and beyond, the Copiague School District held a College and Career Day for all of their schools.
Students at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School had the opportunity to learn about college life firsthand when members of the Class of 2019 visited the school. The recent graduates spoke about their college experiences so far, including courses, dorm life and being away from home. The college students answered questions and provided an inside look into the first year of college for the soon-to-be graduates.
Throughout the elementary schools, students engaged in different activities related to their potential college and career choices. Younger students dressed up in their aspiring profession, with classrooms filled with doctor, nurses, teachers, firefighters, artists and even astronauts.
The younger grades learned all about different colleges, vocational schools and occupations, while fourth and fifth graders researched different colleges and conducted virtual tours of the campuses on their laptops. Deauville Gardens East students used their math skills and knowledge of area and perimeter to design their own dorm rooms, while first graders at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School participated in career stations and explored what it was like to be a fashion designer, architect, chef and writer.
The Long Island Nets graciously donated the transportation so Copiague Middle School's eighth grade class could attend the game on Dec. 11 against the Westchester Knicks. Former Copiague 2011 graduate Wade Richardson was pivotal in assisting with the trip. Long Island Nets group account manager Erica Szczygiel worked with Copiague School District Director of School Climate Michael Ferretti to make this event possible.
Nov. 13 was World Kindness Day and Copiague Middle School did its part to spread kindness through the school and community. Staff members wore kindness day T-shirts. Throughout the day, students participated in different kindness activities. Each student in the school had the opportunity to write a kind note to a peer with a warm fuzzy attached. The notes were delivered to every student in the building the following day at homeroom. Lastly, the students posed for pictures by “becoming the I” in the word kind.
