Meeting New Friends

Incoming kindergartners at Duffield Elementary School recently had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with their new building and meet their classmates prior to the first day of school.

In a tradition started more than 10 years ago, the incoming Connetquot High School Class of 2031 was invited to tour their new school, meet principal Lisa Farrell and make new friends. 

Mrs. Farrell welcomed the parents, grandparents and students to the annual play date and took the eager students on a tour of their new classroom after they got to know each other on the school playground. Additionally, Mrs. Farrell read “The Little Rabbit Who Liked to Say Moo” to each class before providing refreshing snacks to the students who also worked on an arts and craft project. 

“Our PTA always does such a nice job welcoming our kindergartners to Helen B. Duffield Elementary School,” said Mrs. Farrell.
