Facility Updates Usher in a New Era of Learning


Dozens of community residents and families joined Shoreham-Wading River Central District administrators and Board of Education members to celebrate the successful completion of the summer bond work at both Miller Avenue and Wading River elementary schools on Sept. 5.

During ribbon-cutting ceremonies for both new spaces, Superintendent of Schools Gerard Poole expressed thanks and admiration to the many who served on the public facilities committee, which worked tirelessly researching and recommending a plan that culminated in a community-approved capital improvement project bond referendum in January of 2015.

The bond included myriad projects throughout the district and, most recently, the construction of new spaces at both Miller Avenue and Wading River elementary schools. The latest updates, which were completed in time for the start of the 2017-18 school year, featured instructional classroom additions; improved infrastructure; site and parking improvements; new windows and doors; and ceiling, electrical, roofing and ventilation upgrades.
