It was a teacher vs. teacher showdown at Copiague Middle School when the faculty from Susan E. Wiley took on the faculty from Deauville Gardens East for volleyball matches on Jan. 12.
The games were a fundraising effort for the Parent Teacher Associations and fifth-grade committees at both schools. Students from Susan E. Wiley and Deauville Gardens East came out to support and cheer on their teachers. In all, the fundraising efforts yielded close to $300 for each school.
Being college and career ready was top of mind for students as the district celebrated College and Career Day on Jan. 13.
From the elementary schools all the way up to the high school, faculty and administrators proudly dressed in their alma mater. Students at Great Neck Road opted to dress as their future career choice with a slew of doctors, veterinarians, police officers and lawyers throughout the building. One elementary class set up its room as a bakery for the day. Dressed as aspiring chefs, the students baked and sold cupcakes and cookies to learn about business model.
Students at the middle school learned about the many opportunities offered during the college years, such as traveling abroad and meeting new people. Teachers shared their college experience and spoke about the endless career choices that college can offer.
Military personnel, local businesspeople and alumni visited Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School to offer insight and information about the college experience. Many alumni spoke about budgeting, dorm life, financial aid and navigating through the first year both academically and socially.
Throughout the district, students sported their blue and white “College and Career Day” bracelets to support the event.
