Incoming sixth and ninth grade students explored their new buildings as Copiague Middle School and Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School held orientation days on Aug. 30 and 31, respectively.

At Copiague Middle School, students and parents received a brief orientation conducted by Principal Andrew Lagnado before touring the building and trying out their new lockers. Students also met with their homeroom teachers to go over schedules and ask questions.

Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School’s ninth grade orientation for both students and their parents began with a presentation by Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School Principal Joseph Agosta. Students were introduced to administrators, department chairs and class advisers. Director of Guidance Sabrina Meehan went over graduation requirements before students broke into smaller groups to meet with their student ambassadors.

Student ambassadors are handpicked seniors who will work with the ninth graders as mentors throughout the school year. The ambassadors met with students for breakout sessions, bonding activities and a scavenger hunt around the building. To close out the day, the ninth graders received their schedules and locker assignments.
