SUMMER EXPLORERS thumbnail223609

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.

CIVIC READINESS thumbnail218919

Two hundred and sixty-three Farmingdale High School seniors were awarded The NYS Seal of Civic Readiness during an assembly on Tuesday, June 14, attended by administrators, staff, and board of education members.

The mission of the New York State Education Department is “to raise the knowledge, skill, and opportunity of all people in New York.” In alignment with this mission, every public school seeks to graduate students prepared for college, career, and to be civic-ready.

Civic readiness is the ability to make a positive difference in the public life of our communities through the combination of civic knowledge, skills and actions, mindsets, and experiences.

Farmingdale School District was selected by New York State's Department of Education (NYSED) for the Civic Seal of Readiness Pilot Program. Only nine long island high schools were given this opportunity.

The NYS Seal of Civic Readiness recognizes students who have developed their understanding of civic responsibility and have been able to successfully apply the related knowledge and skills through coursework, clubs, extracurricular activities, or work. By reflecting upon their own learning and demonstrating how their civic involvement has impacted others and themselves, students are better equipped to build on these skills after graduation.



SENIOR WALK thumbnail218918

Over 400 Farmingdale High School seniors—dressed in green and white graduation gowns—returned to their elementary schools for the district’s annual Senior Walk on Monday, June 13. The nostalgic procession occurred at all four schools—Albany Avenue, Northside, Saltzman East Memorial, and Woodward Parkway.

The Class of 2022 were all smiles as they paraded through their former schools, revisited the classrooms, and reconnected with their favorite teachers!
