With the heat of summer still lingering in the air, students at the district’s six schools streamed back to classes on Sept. 3 full of excitement at the prospect of a brand-new school year.

“What an amazing first day at Timber Point,” said the school’s new principal, Danielle Naccarato. “The excitement, anticipation and energy were felt in the air.  Seeing all of the students’ smiles just made my day.”

“There is life again at East Islip High School,” said Principal Bill Brennen, as his building filled with new freshmen and seniors nearing the end of their long educational journey at the district. “It’s great to have our students back, excited and ready to learn.”

It didn’t take long for the returning students to get back in the swing of things, academically. “The first- and second-grade children were eager to be back learning and fell quickly into a familiar routine, working on literacy and numeracy skills right from the start,” said Connetquot Principal Deborah Smith.  Our new entrants and kindergartners were all smiles as they made many new friends and were warmly welcomed into the Connetquot family.”  

While the heat outside recalled the joys of summer, inside the buildings it was full steam ahead, adjusting to new schools and reconnecting with classmates. JFK Principal Aileen O’Rourke said, “Our first day of school at JFK was successful, despite the extremely hot temperatures. We welcomed back our fourth- and fifth-graders and were thrilled to meet our new third-graders. We look forward to a wonderful school year.”
