The four elementary schools in the Copiague School District – Deauville Gardens East, Deauville Gardens West, Great Neck Road and Susan E. Wiley –held their Class Day celebrations for the fifth graders moving up to Copiague Middle School.

As the students entered the auditorium, they were cheered on by guests and welcomed by their principals and assistant principals, who offered words of advice as they begin this new journey next school year. Their fifth grade teachers also took to the podium to impart their wisdom.

Special academic awards – including math, English Language Arts, most improved, Presidential Excellence, Principal’s Awards, Honor Student and Suffolk County Executive – were presented to students who excelled both in and out of the classroom.

The fifth graders were called one by one to be recognized for their efforts. To close out their ceremonies, they sang their class songs for the audience before embarking on their next chapter as middle school students.

History Comes to Life at Deauville Gardens West

The gymnasium of Deauville Gardens West Elementary School was transformed into a wax museum as members of the fifth grade class presented their annual interactive experience on June 13.

As a culminating activity to their literacy lessons on biographies, the fifth graders researched and studied an individual who had a major impact on history. During the museum event, the students dressed the part and portrayed their historical figure as a “wax” statue. Some of the figures who came to life included Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars.

The wax figures remained frozen during the museum experience, until they were brought to life by pushing a “button.” The figures then recited interesting facts about their life and why they are important to history to the museum visitors. Teachers, staff members and third and fourth grade classes visited the wax museum to learn about the historical figures.

Copiague School District recognized and honored the 51 student-artists who had their artwork inducted into the Superintendent’s Art Gallery during a ceremony held at Copiague Middle School on June 10.

The 51 pieces of art were framed and placed on display for the audience to enjoy. Each student was presented with a certificate to acknowledge their achievement.

Each of the framed pieces is identified by a brass plate noting the student-artist’s name, grade level and year the piece was completed. Selections for the gallery seek to represent works that reflect the artists’ efforts.
