Congratulations to the talented students who were honored this week at the annual district-wide Reflections ceremony. This special program’s 2019 theme- ‘Heroes Around Me,’ was sponsored by our PTA and hosted by the South Huntington Public Library, offered a wonderful opportunity to applaud the outstanding work of our creative children. We were also blessed to hear and see Sienna Leaver play her original composition on the Piano.

We congratulate all of our Reflections participants and their dedicated parents for fostering a special love of learning in their homes. A special thanks to our PTA representatives for making this wonderful event possible.
