Principal's Message

Welcome to the Eastport Elementary School where an alliance of educators, parents, and students, are dedicated to providing a supportive, safe, and dynamic learning environment. We strive to foster a love for learning in our students and prepare them, both academically and socially, to attain excellence in where they are today and where they are heading in the future. We offer a wide variety of academic programs and a comprehensive social-emotional curriculum to create an atmosphere of learning as well as develop respect for ourselves and others. I’m honored to serve this community as the EES Principal and am looking forward to continuing the great traditions that have been established as well as seeing our students’ continued growth.

Bus transportation: Students are not permitted to go on any other bus than the one that they are assigned to and are required to sit in assigned seats.

Dismissal: Dismissal begins at 3:08 pm and buses will leave the premises at 3:15 pm. Please ensure that an adult is present at your bus stop when your child is dropped off. Parents may pick up their children at the end of the day at the doors along Tuttle Avenue. You may park in the spaces behind the gym. Please remember to have proper identification for pick-up, to notify the school via note or phone call to 631.801.3186, and to arrive by 3:15 pm. 

Early Dismissal: If there is an emergency or if it is necessary to pickup your child before the end of the school day, please do so prior to 2:35 pm. You will need to park in the visitor spaces in the main lot, not where the buses are lined up. Please send your child to school with a note, when possible, stating that you will be picking them up at a specific time and your child will need to provide this note to their classroom teacher.

Eastport Elementary Students are First in Math

Eastport Elementary School fifth graders Jack Anderson, Joseph McErlean and Eric Ramirez were recently named regional winners in the First in Math Virtual Regional Tournament, sponsored by the New York State Education Department. By winning the regional contest, the students received a trophy, a plaque for the school building and a $1,000 award for the school. The team of three will now compete in Albany on June 1 in the upcoming New York State Elementary Mathematics Tournament.

The Virtual Regional Contest focused on the 24Game series featured in the First in Math online program Skill Sets and which tested students on fact fluency, automaticity, problem-solving, procedural fluency and other critical math skills. Only 15 students (five teams of three) from Suffolk County and 150 students statewide advanced to the state championship. In the state competition, students will use game cards and compete in a group setting, to demonstrate through modeling their conceptual understanding of math concepts.

Jack, Joseph and Eric are from both Cindy Brennan’s and Ron Oldenborg’s classes and have already begun training for the math games required for the state competition. Mr. Oldenborg, their coach, will escort the students to Albany.

Principal Thomas Fabian said,” We are really proud of these students’ efforts all year and are wishing them the best of luck in the state competition.”

Students Learn about Autism Through Author Amy McCoy

In recognition of Autism Awareness Month, Dayton Avenue and Eastport Elementary students welcomed “Little Big Sister” author Amy McCoy, who spoke about her book and autism. Ms. McCoy also discussed her second book, “Little Big Sister On the Move.”

The students are collectively reading Ms. McCoy’s books about little sister Katie who feels like a big sister to her older brother, Mikey, because he has autism. The author revealed that her son is autistic and that her younger daughter often feels the same way.

Ms. McCoy called her books “realistic fiction,” stories that didn’t actually happen but that could. She also encouraged the students to write their own stories from ideas that occur from everyday experiences.

Explaining to students her process for writing a book and having it illustrated was ancillary to her message that it’s “cool” to be kind to others that are different. She also gave advice on how to be a friend to someone with autism, including knowing their interests, not talking down to them and inviting them to participate in activities.
