COMMUNITY IMPACT DAY

COMMUNITY IMPACT DAY thumbnail223639

Farmingdale elementary students attending the summer literacy programs hosted at Saltzman East Memorial and Woodward Parkway Elementary Schools were visited by KPMG volunteers on August 2, 2022, in celebration of Community Impact Day.

Students participating in the program received a “healthy kit” that included two books, a jump rope, healthy snacks, school supplies, and a bag. Volunteers also helped students create Kindness Stones to decorate the school’s gardens.

KPMG is marking its 125th Anniversary this year. KPMG has been an incredible corporate champion, that has worked with Farmingdale Schools on numerous projects throughout the year. Congrats KPMG on a historic milestone and thank you for your dedication to supporting Farmingdale’s mission!

Administrators plan to continue the popular summer literacy program next year. Evidence proves that students who find a way to maintain their reading skills over the summer are better prepared for a successful academic year.

SUMMER EXPLORERS

The district’s Extended School Year program, which is housed each summer at Albany Avenue, has gotten off to a great start! With this year’s Explorer theme, students have maintained their learning goals with plenty of hands-on activities and individualized instruction. Learning about ocean and forest animals, practicing fruit smoothie math, paper bead-making for fine motor skills, and strengthening reading in small groups, are just some of the classroom happenings that students have been experiencing.

“Our ESY program would not be as successful without our dedicated team of teachers, aides, and support staff. The students are our priority, and we love to see their smiles each day!” Bonnie McClelland, principal of the Extended School Year program.
