School Updates & Notices


Deauville Gardens West Elementary School serves approximately 450 students from kindergarten through grade five and provides a variety of experiences to support the social, emotional and academic well-being of students. The collaborative atmosphere, well-trained and highly qualified staff and student-centered philosophy foster an environment which truly benefits children.

In order to provide a meaningful and effective education, maximize student growth and meet the requirements of the Common Core Standards, a variety of programs and approaches are utilized. Guided Reading is the foundation of the Balanced Literacy program that is embraced in order to challenge each individual student at his or her appropriate level. Math is taught by allowing students to experiment with concepts and create their own understanding of material. In addition, a number of before-school programs and clubs present students with opportunities to explore new interests.

At Deauville Gardens West, we recognize that a strong partnership between the school and home is essential for a positive and productive educational experience. Staff members work closely with the PTA and families to provide enriching experiences for students both inside and outside of the classroom.

Student Accomplishments Honored

A select number of students were honored for their hard work, dedication and overall academic performance prior to the Jan. 22 board of education meeting in the Copiague School District. The student recognition awards are held only twice per year, and the Copiague Board of Education selects students who have been chosen by administrators, teachers and staff in their respective buildings for their efforts.

The awards are presented to a small number of students for their extra special accomplishments. “Being honored is a very special award in and of itself,” said Copiague School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon. “Appearing in front of your parents, friends, community and the board of education is a distinction. Publicly recognizing excellence is our way of celebrating some of the great successes of the Copiague Schools’ programs and, at the same time, enabling us to showcase outstanding role models to our school community.”

Congratulations to the following students: Deauville Gardens East Elementary School – Zoe Espinal Castro and Elvis Sanchez Balbuena; Deauville Gardens West Elementary School – Caleb Johnson and Lael Carol Renee Quarles; Great Neck Road Elementary School – Grace Cisneros Santillana and Asma Lounici; Susan. E. Wiley Elementary School – Jealyn Guelee and Amber Joseph; Copiague Middle School – Marie Andkerla E. Pierre, Kyle Belgrave, Jace Carter, Kimberly Corvera Molina, Zoey Khisova, Christian McCue and Isabella Rufrano; and Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School – Rebecca Alara, Mohamad Altenbakji, Genesis Martinez Gomez, Shawn Smaldon, Victoria Wheby, Carlos Zelayandia Reyes and Tiffany Zincz.

Third graders at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School are incorporating their creative writing with technology. Students in Ms. Prisco’s class used their Chromebooks to write about how they would escape when trapped in a snow globe. They used their computers to create the graphics and take photos of themselves. In Ms. Bennett and Ms. Moore’s class, students learned that a haiku is a Japanese poem with three lines featuring five syllables on the first line, seven syllables on the second line and five on the third line. The students then created their own winter-themed haikus, which are displayed on their bulletin board.

In recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 15, third graders in Ms. Antz’s class at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School studied his life and work. The students researched Dr. King and his messages using different texts and online resources, such as NatGeo Kids. After completing their research, students wrote their own “I Have A Dream” speech, highlighting how they can impact both their school and community at large.
