Welcome to Wading River's Home on the Web.  This year offers our students a historic and wonderful adventure, filled with rich learning experiences. There is so much to highlight, from learning about how caterpillars transform into butterflies to making new discoveries every day by unlocking the mysteries of reading, mathematical reasoning, and scientific exploration; our youngsters grow so much. All the while, they will write and publish stories, learning how to articulate and expand their thoughts, ideas, and insights with the world.

I appreciate all the time, effort and sharing the teachers, parents, community and students have given to make Wading River such a warm place to learn. A special thank you to our PTA for their generosity in the many ways they volunteer their time and talents for our students.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the teaching and learning at Wading River School. I wish you and your family a year filled with new experiences, family, friends, and learning opportunities that will be used as a springboard for success throughout your child's lifetime.

For those stopping by for a virtual visit of our school, if you have any questions or wish to have an in-person tour arranged, feel free to contact me at your convenience so you may see firsthand some of the exemplary work our students, teachers and staff engage in each day.

Did you know that dumplings are associated with wealth in the Chinese culture? Or that oranges represent luck, prosperity and a long life?

Students in the new Language Buddies Club held their first meeting at Wading River School to learn these and other facts. English as a new language teacher Ms. Jennifer Hoey coordinated activities for the participating students to learn about how Lunar New Year is celebrated. The students snacked on dumplings and oranges as part of Chinese tradition to bring good fortune in the new year. They made Chinese lanterns with three wishes for the new year and worked on making lucky cats and dragon crafts. Our Chinese students shared ways their own families celebrate.

“All involved had such a nice time,” District Director of Humanities Mrs. Nicole Waldbauer said.
