Stepping into the School Year

Stepping into the School Year  thumbnail133588

Kindergartners attending both Sycamore Avenue and Edith L. Slocum elementary schools met their teachers and made new friends at the annual kindergarten playdates held at their respective schools earlier this month.

Prior to the first day of school on Sept. 5, the future Connetquot High School graduating Class of 2032 were invited to tour their classrooms, play with some old friends and make a few new ones along the way.

Sycamore Avenue Elementary School Principal Stuart Pollak and Edith L. Slocum Elementary School Principal Mr. John Delio were on hand to welcome the parents and new students for this special day. 

Both Sycamore and Slocum teachers, along with members of the school’s Parent-Teacher Associations, welcomed the students and made them comfortable with their new surroundings. Refreshments and craft activities were also provided by each school’s PTA officers as the students mingled and enjoyed their first official visit to their new schools.
