Deauville Gardens East Elementary School serves approximately 450 students from kindergarten through grade five and provides a variety of experiences to support the social, emotional and academic well-being of students. The collaborative atmosphere, well-trained and highly qualified staff and student-centered philosophy foster an environment which truly benefits children.
In order to provide a meaningful and effective education, maximize student growth and meet the requirements of the Common Core Standards, a variety of programs and approaches are utilized. Guided Reading is the foundation of the Balanced Literacy program that is embraced in order to challenge each individual student at his or her appropriate level. Math is taught by allowing students to experiment with concepts and create their own understanding of material. In addition, a number of after-school programs and clubs present students with opportunities to explore new interests.
At Deauville Gardens East, we recognize that a strong partnership between the school and home is essential for a positive and productive educational experience. Staff members work closely with the PTA and families to provide enriching experiences for students both inside and outside of the classroom.
To help ensure Copiague residents were well stocked in time for Thanksgiving and the holiday break, the Copiague School District community came together to distribute produce, grocery bags, lunches and turkeys.
On Nov. 21, members of the school district community – including administrators, staff, board of education members and faculty– distributed the items throughout the morning at Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School.
It was a truly a team effort by members of the Copiague School District, thanks to donations from the school community and Island Harvest. The Eagle’s Nest food pantry held a food drive and collected donations for Thanksgiving dinners that totaled 264 grocery bags filled with holiday staples. Island Harvest donated fresh produce that amounted to 400 pounds of goods. In addition to the produce items, Island Harvest also contributed 344 grocery boxes.
Thanks to monetary donations received by the school community for the food pantry and Island Harvest, 163 turkeys were also distributed. The Copiague School District’s food service program prepared, donated and distributed 1,611 individual lunches.
First graders in Ms. Nunn’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School participated in different reading and writing activities centered around Veterans Day. The class read their “Scholastic News” magazine about Veterans Day while highlighting sight words they learned. The first graders also practiced writing a sentence about Veterans Day on Nov. 11.
October is Fire Safety Month and the kindergartners in Ms. Steiger’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School are learning all about staying safe in the event of an emergency. Students created their own fire heroes and learned how these brave essential workers are keeping them safe.
Students in Ms. Graziano’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School are completing their unit on apples. After the students created a circle map, a brace map and a tree map, they made their own apple mini book and became the illustrators of those books. Students also practiced tracking their reading with one to one matching.
