A little rain at arrival didn’t dampen the enthusiasm for the first day of school — and in-person learning — on Thursday.
Administrators fanned out throughout the Smithtown Central School District’s dozen schools to join staff in greeting students amid the raindrops.
At High School West, a large sign donated by the PTSA that read, “Welcome Back, West Side Pride,” greeted students.
At Nesaquake Middle School, sixth-grade teacher Ron Parmegiani was among the most enthusiastic. He grabbed an umbrella and went car to car as students arrived, offering personalized greetings to each family.
"We are very excited to welcome our students back to school for in-person instruction five days a week,” superintendent Mark Secaur said. “We have many reasons to be enthusiastic about this school year, including the return of extracurricular clubs, sports and activities. Our students also will be able to participate in field trips, concerts, plays and other activities that bring them joy and a well-rounded scholastic experience.
“This year’s enrollment will be near 8,000 students, including 171 students in our new full-day prekindergarten. We stand ready to provide all of our students with whatever academic, social or emotional assistance they may need and look forward to the year ahead.”
The Smithtown Central School District welcomed its newest educators on Monday.
A three-day New Teacher Orientation program began inside Branch Brook Elementary School library in the morning, with board of education members, superintendent Mark Secaur and several other administrators offering their greetings.
The group, which includes teachers, psychologists, social workers and counselors, and which comprises roughly 40 newcomers in total, then began three days of programming to prepare them for the Sept. 9 opening day of school.
Sessions during the three-day event will include strategies for success during the opening days of school, classroom management, an overview of technology resources, meetings with principals, special education and guidance department overviews, and the distribution of security badges, email addresses, passwords and other key material.
Annette Pavlakis was diagnosed with cancer 11 years ago while a sixth-grade student at Great Hollow Middle School. Her teachers, Michelle Manning and June Scully, went above and beyond, choosing to home school Annette as she battled cancer.
The relationship has continued to this day, with Manning and Scully participating in Pavlakis family events, including lighting a candle at Annette and her twin sister Ashley's Sweet 16.
A recent graduate of NYIT with a degree in graphic design (and a High East East grad in 2017), Annette salutes her former teachers who have become her and her family's close friends.
