Great Neck Road Elementary School provides a challenging and supportive academic program for approximately 525 students in kindergarten through grade five. The faculty at Great Neck Road works closely with students in many areas to instill in them a lifelong desire to learn.
Great Neck Road teachers and staff are involved in several educational initiatives dedicated to promoting creative and critical thinking and to achieve grade level proficiency in reading, mathematics, and English Language Arts. In addition to the strong support programs dedicated to assisting students in need, there is also a renowned Talented and Gifted program which provides students with an opportunity to explore subjects beyond the scope of the standard curriculum.
In addition, with help from the school's very active PTA, students are involved in numerous academic, social, and cultural programs, as well as family-oriented events and activities throughout the school year.
Equipped with their walkers, canes and reading glasses, the elementary students – and a few teachers – at Copiague School District made their way to school to celebrate the 100th day of school.
Students spent the day engaged in different hands-on learning activities centered around the number 100. The students were challenged to stack 100 cups in a tower and count to 100 using different coins.
Kindergartners read books about 100 days and completed writing assignments on what they wanted to be when they were 100. Posters showed off the students’ creative side with unique ways to showcase 100 different items.
Honoring the many accomplishments of its students both in and out of the class, Copiague School District’s administrators and Board of Education held a student recognition awards ceremony on Jan. 27.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon welcomed the students and their families and congratulated them for being chosen for recognition. “Publicly recognizing excellence is a way of celebrating some of the great successes of the Copiague School District’s programs and, at the same time, enabling us to showcase outstanding role models to our school community.”
After reading a short description of each students’ accomplishments, they were called to the podium to receive their plaque and congratulations from the board of education members.
The following students were selected for recognition: Deauville Gardens East: Mert Ergal and Josue Mendez; Deauville Gardens West: Maxumis Aguilera, Danika Eldora and Keyon Elliot; Great Neck Road: Andy Andino, Melanie Robertson and Maya Thompson; Susan E.
