Moving Up to Middle School

In mid-June, each of the seven elementary schools in the Connetquot Central School District held its own “moving up” ceremony to honor its fifth graders as they advance to middle school. Proud family members watched as the students performed musical numbers, received special awards, and were recognized individually as elementary school graduates. Connetquot Central School District congratulates each fifth grade graduate and wishes them a wonderful middle school experience.

Earlier this spring, fourth graders at Edith L. Slocum Elementary School participated in a virtual field trip hosted by the Long Island Explorium. Through this interactive presentation, the students learned about how airplanes take flight, including the challenges associated with it, why runways are designed the way they are, and what can be done in the future to improve the takeoff process.

The Edith L. Slocum Elementary School community recently celebrated Flag Day by wearing red, white and blue, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and performing flag-themed songs on their band and orchestra instruments. Select students also took to the podium to teach their fellow students about the history of the American flag. Connetquot Central School District thanks physical education teacher John Zambriski for organizing this patriotic event.
