Ducky Visits

Ducky Visits PHoto

Students at Bosti and Sycamore Avenue Elementary Schools were recently able to spend time with two different kinds of ducks – real-life baby ducklings and Long Island Ducks mascot Quackerjack.

Pre-schoolers in Amy Doerring’s class at Bosti Elementary School were visited by Victoria Ziglioli, Connetquot High School alumna and daughter of teaching assistant Linda Ziglioli, and her two baby Peking ducklings. The students and staff members were able to pet the beautiful baby ducks, who came to the school in partnership with the class’s spring-themed unit of study.

Long Island Ducks team mascot Quackerjack travelled to Sycamore to greet students before they prepared to go home for the day.  Quackerjack, along with his friend Drew Mongiello, stopped by to remind students and staff that Sycamore students will be singing the national anthem at the team’s May 5 game against the Maryland Blue Crabs.
