As School Year Winds Down, Students Prepare for Next Steps

The big day is a little more than 2 weeks away, and then high school will be over for more than four hundred Whitman graduating seniors. But throughout the district, many students of all grade levels will be graduating to their own next big step. For two of our youngest groups of students, the next step is a big one. Our South Huntington preschool (SHIP) graduates will enjoy a long summer and get ready for kindergarten. Thank you, South Huntington Board of Education, as we are one of the few districts left in the area to offer a full-day program.

Our second graders at Countrywood and Oakwood are off to intermediate school, as Birchwood and Maplewood await them. Oakwood second-grade classes visited Birchwood recently and were met with enthusiastic students and staff members who are ready to make their transition a smooth one. In the photos, Ms. Reyes's second-grade students visited Ms. D’Elia's third-grade class. Ms. D’Elia’s students created a FLIP video for the second graders that highlighted the wonderful activities and learning that take place in third grade!
