With banners blazing in the bright early autumn sunshine, the school community took to the streets to celebrate homecoming on Sept. 27, led by grand marshal Cathy Cahill, the district’s director of science and technology, and members of the Board of Education and administration. Beginning on Bunker Avenue, the marchers showed their Warriors spirit, with smiles elicited by bear, bee and dolphin mascots from the district’s three elementary schools. Floats from each high school grade class were on prominent display, with the winner being the sophomores and their creation themed after “The Price Is Right.”
Negotiations between Acme Bus Co. and their drivers continues Tuesday afternoon. In the event that a strike occurs, please follow the attached schedule for students attending these schools.
Toting backpacks and boxes full of school supplies, district students disembarked from bright yellow school buses and carpools ready and excited to start the 2015-2016 school year on Sept. 1. Members of the Board of Education, Superintendent of Schools Maureen Goldberg, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction John C. McNamara and Assistant Superintendent for Business Adriana Silver joined the principals of each school in welcoming the students as they filed through the front doors and into their classrooms.
The district is pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Santorello as the new high school assistant principal, effective Aug. 17. Ms. Santorello joins Wantagh from the Plainview-Old Bethpage School District, where she held the positions of associate dean of students and business and marketing educator.
