Getting Familiar with New Surroundings

The District welcomed students and parents to become familiar with their new buildings on Aug. 27 and 28 during a trio of orientations.

With the new school year set to begin, administrators welcomed students to Bethpage High School, Kramer Lane Elementary School and John F. Kennedy Middle School for information sessions. 

Students entering the ninth grade were afforded the opportunity to tour the hallways of the high school thanks to student council members who led the way. The same student council representatives led groups of freshmen with the Sandy Hook Promise Start with Hello program. The program, according to its website, enables students to make a difference with their peers in a simple, fun and impactful way by encouraging them to take small but powerful actions to promote connectedness and inclusion, and to identify and help others who are showing signs of social isolation.

Principal Kerri McCarthy hosted new kindergarten students and parents for a “cruise” of the hallways, classrooms, library and cafeteria of Kramer Lane in addition to a bus ride. As each student completed the sessions of the day, they received a sticker to input into their Kramer Lane passport. Information sessions included the process of lunch, riding a school bus and becoming familiar with the classroom setting.

JFK began the process of welcoming sixth graders into the building with an ice cream social along with buddies from the eighth grade on Aug. 27. Students and parents returned on Aug. 28 for informational sessions and a building tour.

The district looks forward to welcoming all students back for an exciting 2019-20 school year!
