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.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, students at Great Neck Road Elementary School created a dream wall in their school. After learning about Dr. King and his life’s mission and the differences he made, the students each wrote about their own dreams and how they hope to make a difference. Each student then added their individual dream to the wall to create one wall of dreams.
In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and his mission of peace, students in Ms. Haughney’s art classes through the district have been reflecting on his work. Some of their recent projects inspired by Dr. King include mosaic peace symbols and doves of peace with olive branches.
Our food service workers have adapted and changed with the evolving needs during this pandemic. Watch this video that shows how their roles have changed both in schools and in the community.
To help ensure Copiague residents were well stocked in time for Thanksgiving and the holiday break, the Copiague School District community came together to distribute produce, grocery bags, lunches and turkeys.
On Nov. 21, members of the school district community – including administrators, staff, board of education members and faculty– distributed the items throughout the morning at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School.
It was a truly a team effort by members of the Copiague School District, thanks to donations from the school community and Island Harvest. The Eagle’s Nest food pantry held a food drive and collected donations for Thanksgiving dinners that totaled 264 grocery bags filled with holiday staples. Island Harvest donated fresh produce that amounted to 400 pounds of goods. In addition to the produce items, Island Harvest also contributed 344 grocery boxes.
Thanks to monetary donations received by the school community for the food pantry and Island Harvest, 163 turkeys were also distributed. The Copiague School District’s food service program prepared, donated and distributed 1,611 individual lunches.
