From the high school and middle school to Connetquot, JFK, RCK and Timber Point elementary schools, East Islip students arrived back in classes on a warm Sept. 6, enjoying a terrific first day of school to start the educational year.

“Despite the incredible heat, the middle school students returned with great enthusiasm for the new school year,” said Principal William Brennen.

“JFK students enthusiastically started the new school year,” said Principal Deborah Smith. “Smiles and laughter once again filled the hallways as we welcomed our new third-graders as well as the returning fourth- and fifth-grade students. We look forward to all the wonderful learning that will take place this year.”

 

 

 

 

 

Timber Point Students Make Marble Mazes

Timber Point Students Make Marble Mazes

Students in Donna Beal’s class at Timber Point designed and created paper tube marble runs after studying premade designs.

After using magnetic runs to create a workable track system, the students drew blueprints using paper tubes and duct tape. During the design process, the students tested out their runs and corrected any problems so that their marbles would roll smoothly through the mazes. Finally, the children painted their runs, reflected upon their work, and wrote out the steps they followed. Each child presented their project and told the audience what they liked about the entire creative process. 

“We are very proud of the students’ perseverance and hard work,” said Beal.
