Joining the Fight Against Breast Cancer

October is breast cancer awareness month and Susan E. Wiley Elementary has joined together in the fight throughout the month.

Kicking off their fundraising effort on Oct. 5, families were asked to make a donation to “turn the ribbon pink,” writing their names on small pink ribbons to fill in a larger pink ribbon that hangs in the main hallway. That event raised close to $300 alone.

To further the effort, staff and faculty at Susan E. Wiley are donating $5 to wear pink to school every Friday during the month, which will be donated to the American Cancer Society. The school’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” effort will also include a walk at Jones Beach on Oct. 16.

Picking the Perfect Pumpkin

Each student at Susan E. Wiley Elementary went home with their own perfectly picked pumpkin, thanks to the generosity of the school’s PTA. Class by class, each student ventured outside on Oct. 7 with their class to pick out their favorite pumpkin of the patch, which will be carved or decorated at home for the fall season.

Eagle Pride Soars


School pride was in the air on Sept. 24 as Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School celebrated homecoming with festivities, including a parade, fair, football game and Hall of Achievement induction ceremony.

The day’s events kicked off with a spirited parade that started at Great Neck Elementary and ended at the high school. The freshman, sophomore, junior and senior classes marched along the route with their “Around the World”-themed floats, while the marching band provided the soundtrack. Also taking part in the parade were numerous groups and organizations from the high school, middle school and elementary schools.

Following the parade, a ceremony was held on the football field where cheerleaders and the step team performed after the homecoming queen and king, Diana Lopez and Rigaud Destime were introduced. Speaking during the ceremony were school administrators and local government officials.

The afternoon continued as the varsity football team took on Centereach High School. Despite their best efforts, the Eagles were unable to defeat the Cougars.

During the halftime show, the marching band, cheerleaders and step team treated the crowd to rousing performances.

The festivities concluded with the district’s annual Hall of Achievement induction ceremony at the high school. This year’s inductees included Class of 1984 alumnus Jim Konen, Class of 1998 alumna Dr. Leslie Marino and Class of 1977 alumnus Craig Stadelman.
