Congratulations goes to Dayton Avenue Elementary School sixth grader Isabella Fiordalisi who won the spelling bee held for students in grades 4-6. Sugey Rubio was the runner-up in the competition. Additionally, Enzo Pastor was the winner of the third grade spelling bee with Nathan Franco placing second.

District classrooms took time to celebrate the power of reading aloud during annual World Read Aloud Day, held on Feb. 1. Teams of select high school students, many of whom are members of the English Honor Society, shared their favorite books with younger students enrolled at Dayton Avenue, Eastport, Tuttle Avenue and South Street elementary schools.

World Read Aloud Day encourages people throughout the world to read aloud together and share stories to advocate for literature and the written word.On posters scattered throughout the elementary schools, the reason to read aloud included improved listening, expanded vocabulary and spelling, affirmation of the value of reading, sparking important conversations and providing time to bond with one another.

Eastport-South Manor Jr.-Sr. High School readers Fiona Schlegel and Ben Isaacson explained to students that reading can be fun because you can travel the world. “Reading can take you to places you’ve never been,” Ben said.

In addition to reading aloud, the high school volunteers also worked with the elementary school students in making reading crowns and bookmarks to mark the occasion.

During the month of February, Dayton Avenue Elementary School students are focusing on being kind and are continuing their efforts of making an impact on their community.

“We hope that our students and families remember that sometimes individually we may not be able to make the change we want to see but by teaming up with other like-minded people, we can have a huge impact,” Principal Dr. Shelita Watkis said.

Through Feb. 10, the students will collect canned soups for the Presbyterian Church of Center Moriches and winter apparel items for Holly’s Hats and Robby’s Gloves.
