Sixth-Grade Students Get Set For Middle School
In preparation for the 2017-2018 school year, Levittown's incoming sixth-graders gathered for orientation assemblies at Jonas E. Salk and Wisdom Lane middle schools on Aug. 30. The assemblies allowed the students to learn more about their new building and the policies and procedures before the first day of school on Sept. 6.
Jonas Salk Middle School Principal John Zampaglione and Assistant Principal Patrick Mulligan spoke to the new students about the first day of school and eighth-grade students in the school's junior leaders program assisted their incoming peers with opening their locks, many for the first time. At the end of the program, students were taken on a tour of the building, where they located their lockers and classrooms.
Wisdom Lane sixth-graders attended orientation with their parents, who were greeted by Principal John Avena, Assistant Principal Craig Arvelo-Shaw and other members of the administration and faculty. They learned about what to expect, key policies and classroom transitions. After the assembly, students were invited to walk the halls with their families to find their homerooms and practice opening their lockers.
