East Islip Middle School’s annual Backyard Bash provided
the school’s graduating eighth-graders the chance to celebrate and have
fun in the sun before they prepare to enter East Islip High School this
fall as freshmen. Held in back of the school on June 18 following the
students’ last test of the morning, the Bash featured a barbecue,
pumping DJ music and dancing as well as a huge assortment of inflatable
rides and party games provided by NY Party Works.
