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.

Important Information

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.

Drop-off: If you plan on driving your child to school do not enter campus from Montauk Highway. Please use the student drop-off loop which is located behind the gymnasium, near the playground. The drop-off loop is accessed from Tuttle Avenue.

Dismissal: Dismissal begins at 3:08 pm. Please ensure an adult is present at your bus stop when your child is dropped-off at the end of the school day.
If a student does not take the bus home, parents may pick them up at the back door of the gymnasium, closest to Tuttle Avenue. You may park in the spaces behind the gym. Please remember to have proper identification for pick-up and to notify the school via note or phone call to 631.801.3173.

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.

Releasing of Students: Children will only be released to parents/guardians or emergency contacts (with prior permission). Photo identification is required when releasing a student from the building. No one under the age of 18 will be permitted to pickup a child under any circumstances.

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.

At Eastport Elementary School, Emily Hershey was the winner of the schoolwide spelling bee. Kaylee Nicoletti was the runner-up.

The District congratulates the students on this outstanding accomplishment and extends best wishes for success in the Long Island Regional Scripps Spelling Bee.

Martin Luther King Jr.-Inspired Music

Eastport Elementary School third graders in Cara Navaretta’s music class were inspired by the words of Dr. King as they studied music honoring the civil rights leader.

During their class, they studied the song “Martin Luther King Jr.” using basic music reading skills and tracked the lyrics to the song. They also discussed the difference between lyrics (words) and form (organized lyrics). As they sung the music, the students used a call and response method, a type of echo in a song, to repeat the lyrics and to complete their study of the musical piece. They also used additional instruments to add another element to the celebratory music.

The library media center at Eastport Elementary School has been a hub of holiday research and science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics activities.  

During the month of December, students researched holiday traditions around the world. Library media specialist Alyssa Sorensen uploaded a Google Classroom page that contained links embedded in a holiday living room scene which brought the students to a link about different holidays. 

The week prior to the holiday break, students also participated in stations in which they built a shelf for an elf out of popsicle sticks and play dough. They also built a Christmas tree out of straws and play dough. Some of the other activities included competitively rolling dice to complete a picture of a snowman using math skills, making an ornament, and creating a holiday Joke Teller. Ms. Sorensen also used green screen technology to take a photo of each student using various winter and holiday scenes.
