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.

Combining Kinetic Energy + Kindness at Wading River School

Wading River School teachers are always on the lookout for unique lessons to present, and students are always excited to participate in them.

When the Fourth Grade Student Council and advisers Kerryann DeMauro and Kellie McGuire set out to collect boxes of cereal for local food pantries, the final count reached more than 12 dozen boxes. The colorful selections were stored in Mrs. DeMauro’s classroom before the students conducted a final count and set up the boxes to create a domino challenge, hoping their efforts would set off a chain reaction that allowed others to note the positive outcome of giving to the greater SWR community.

This act of giving coincided with the fourth grade energy transfer science unit, and as the students witnessed the falling cereal boxes, carefully set up as “50!” to represent the 50th anniversary of the Shoreham-Wading River School District, they also witnessed potential energy being converted to kinetic energy.

Special thanks to club advisers Mrs. DeMauro and Mrs. McGuire for their leadership in this project!

Wading River School students had a great time on Jan. 24 at the Broadway musical of Back to the Future. The students had a special send-off when a DeLorean arrived at the school to start the day. They also had the opportunity to interact with the staff after the show!
