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.

These inspiring words to live by will greet all who enter Wading River School. The tile mural mosaic is the latest piece of history that the students in the school can be proud of, knowing that they took part in its initial vision, creation and final installation. Students worked with renowned artist Joshua Winer on the original, colorful work of art that reflects the school’s mission. The students were introduced to Mr. Winer’s work in school assemblies and brainstormed together to embark on a journey of creative adventure.

There will be a banner above the mural that will echo Wading River School’s philosophy that students share every morning on the announcements: “Let’s Make it a Great Day!”
