Wiley students can take advantage of a variety of experiences including a STEM program, before- and after-school academic assistance programs, intramural sports, student clubs and organizations, and many other programs dedicated to helping students explore their potential.
More than 100 students and their families gathered together on the evening of Oct. 4 to celebrate their love of literacy. Susan E. Wiley Elementary School held its first Family Literacy Night of the school year for students in kindergarten through second grade.
The theme was “Read with Me,” and students and their families joined teachers in their classrooms to learn reading strategies parents can use at home. Students and their families read together using “We Both Read” books where each book is specially formatted for a parent and student to take turns reading aloud alternate pages. The parent pages feature higher-level text, while the student pages feature text that matches the student’s reading level.
Susan E. Wiley will hold its next Family Literacy Night for grades 3-5 on Nov. 1.
The community came out in full force to support Copiague School District during its homecoming celebration on Sept. 16. Eagle pride was soaring as the day kicked off with a parade, followed by a fair, football game and Hall of Achievement inductions.
Starting with a parade at Great Neck Road Elementary School, each of the district’s schools, community clubs, activities – as well as athletic teams and musicians – marched down Great Neck Road en route to Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School.
Floats from the senior, junior, sophomore and freshman classes also lined the roadway in this year’s theme of “Through the Decades.” The homecoming court – including king Josh Tavares and queen Kathy Rosado – rode atop convertible cars and waved to the crowd down the parade route.
Following the parade, Copiague Board of Education members, administrators and local government officials gathered on the school’s new turf field to welcome the community. Members of the homecoming court were introduced before the Eagles took on the Huntington Blue Devils. Despite their best efforts, Copiague was defeated by Huntington.
Later in the evening, Copiague celebrated the 20th anniversary of its Hall of Achievement, inducting four new members into the ranks. This year’s honorees were Dave Colford, Class of 1994; Silas W. Kelly, Class of 1971; Dr. Corinthia Price, Class of 1993; and Ken Urban, Class of 1993.
Students and staff at Copiague School District were welcomed back for the 2017-2018 school year on Sept. 5. Students were eager to meet their new teachers and classmates as they spent their mornings settling into a routine. Please enjoy a slideshow of pictures from the first day of school.
