Deauville Gardens West 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 before-school programs and clubs present students with opportunities to explore new interests.

At Deauville Gardens West, 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.

Prior to the Jan. 23 board of education meeting, Copiague School District held its student recognition awards ceremony at Copiague Middle School. Held only twice per year, the board of education honors select students who have been chosen by administrators, teachers and staff in their respective buildings for their efforts.

The awards are presented to a small number of students for their extra special accomplishments. “Being honored is a very special award in and of itself,” said Copiague School District Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon. “Appearing in front of your parents, friends, community and the board of education is a distinction. Publicly recognizing excellence is our way of celebrating some of the great successes of the Copiague Schools’ programs and, at the same time, enabling us to showcase outstanding role models to our school community.”

Congratulations to the following students: Deauville Gardens East Elementary School – Carter Deegan and Juliette Peralta; Deauville Gardens West Elementary School – Hector Molina Godoy Jr. and Leslie Nunez Ramirez; Great Neck Road Elementary School – Jonathan Angulo and Brasen Cruz Meraz; Susan. E. Wiley Elementary School – Jeremy Duran and Kyle Lopez; Copiague Middle School – Caiden Cohen, Parker Cohen and Mary McClendon; and Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School – Ferris Garafola, Kaia Mabli, Nalbelys Marmol Pichardo, Rashel Nunez, Edison Peguero Rosario, Kevin Pineda Guzman and Karsten Spencer.

As part of their English language arts lessons, students in Ms. Antz’s third grade class at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School participated in a book club. Students cohort into different groups to read various fiction and nonfiction texts. Students are offered four different book choices based on their interests. Students collectively look at central ideas in the book and use their critical thinking skills to create questions. This project-based learning activity also incorporates technology into the mix as students created Flip Grids to give book reviews to their classmates.

Students in Ms. Bennett and Ms. Moore’s third grade class at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School have been working on their multiplication skills. One of the strategies they learned is building math arrays. The students each created a three-dimensional math array building, using the windows as the arrays. They then solved the multiplication problem on their buildings. The buildings joined together to create an entire math array city.

As part of a hands-on STEM activity, the second graders at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School designed their own snowflakes.

The classes first read “Snowflake Bentley,” a book that tells the story of the first snowflake photographer. Students were then tasked with creating their own snowflakes based off a design sketch using marshmallows, toothpicks or straws. After creating their unique snowflakes, students wrote about how they could improve their designs.
