Stepping into Middle School

On Aug. 27, both the Ronkonkoma and Oakdale-Bohemia middle schools welcomed incoming sixth graders and their parents for the annual “walk-through” event in an effort to allow the students to familiarize themselves with their new educational surroundings.

Upon entering their respective buildings, students were granted the opportunity to tour the school, find their classrooms and get accustomed to their new lockers. This served as a wonderful opportunity for the students to reconnect with neighborhood friends and meet their new classmates coming from the surrounding elementary schools. 

Both Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School Principal Susanne Bailey and Ronkonkoma Middle School Acting Principal Joseph Licato wished the students and their families an enjoyable remainder of the summer, and encouraged parents to keep the lines of communication open with any questions they may have prior to the start of school on Sept. 5.
