The district recently hosted its seventh annual Library Literacy Celebration earlier this month at Connetquot High School, surrounding the central theme of “Every Picture Tells A Story.”  

With assistance from the district’s librarians, interactive stations and/or makerspace activities were set up throughout the schools’ hallways, as students were invited to create a robot or a monster, name literary characters, “jump into a book,” create a kaleidoscope, and participate in flight school, amongst many others.

This year’s guest presentation was delivered by author/illustrator Ralph Masiello, who coached the student-illustrators while storytelling and creating original artwork of his own. 

While all of the supplementary fun was occurring in the school’s hallways, the heart of the Literacy Celebration was showcased in the cafeteria, where districtwide student writing samples from grades K-8 were proudly displayed in a gallery format for all to enjoy.
