Eastport-South Manor Jr.-Sr. High School Student Ambassadors recently visited Dayton Avenue and Eastport elementary schools’ sixth graders to allay their concerns about moving up to junior high school this coming fall.
Divided into teams, the student ambassadors spoke to the younger students about A/B days, how to adapt to a teacher’s teaching styles and expectations, homework, navigating the building, clubs and more. Most importantly, they emphasized that students must take responsibility for their academic success.
Eastport-South Manor Jr.-Sr. High School Principal Sal Alaimo was also on hand to introduce himself to the students. He encouraged them to set expectations for themselves early and to get to know their teachers.
“Your character is your character and will shine through to who you are,” Mr. Alaimo said.
