The Shoreham-Wading River School District recently held a walkthrough and plaque dedication at Wading River School to provide the Board of Education, district administrators and the community with an update on the school’s recently completed and upcoming projects.

Superintendent of Schools Gerard Poole said he is pleased and excited about the changes occurring in the district’s facilities as a result of the 2015 resident-approved capital project bond referendum. Of the elementary school’s facility improvements, he stated, “The school is an absolute gem and a wonderful learning environment for our students.” He also noted that this is an exciting time for the district. “We are grateful to the community for their overwhelming support.”

Principal Louis Parrinello led the tour, which highlighted recently completed updates including: an updated entranceway, improvement to the third-grade wing, lighting and ceiling replacement, bathroom handicap access in the nurse’s office, updated bathrooms throughout the building, new custodial and psychologist office space, a new building wing with courtyard instructional space, new fifth-grade classrooms, renovated cafeteria, a new gymnasium ceiling, updated library, renovated stage for musical rehearsals and a new roof in the front of the building.
