Welcome to Wading River's Home on the Web.  This year offers our students a historic and wonderful adventure, filled with rich learning experiences. There is so much to highlight, from learning about how caterpillars transform into butterflies to making new discoveries every day by unlocking the mysteries of reading, mathematical reasoning, and scientific exploration; our youngsters grow so much. All the while, they will write and publish stories, learning how to articulate and expand their thoughts, ideas, and insights with the world.

I appreciate all the time, effort and sharing the teachers, parents, community and students have given to make Wading River such a warm place to learn. A special thank you to our PTA for their generosity in the many ways they volunteer their time and talents for our students.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the teaching and learning at Wading River School. I wish you and your family a year filled with new experiences, family, friends, and learning opportunities that will be used as a springboard for success throughout your child's lifetime.

For those stopping by for a virtual visit of our school, if you have any questions or wish to have an in-person tour arranged, feel free to contact me at your convenience so you may see firsthand some of the exemplary work our students, teachers and staff engage in each day.

Sharing Love With Lemonade

Gianna Horsford and family with the money Gina raised thumbnail218431
A proud moment in SWR history took place recently when three district sisters set up a lemonade stand. The money they made could have gone into their savings accounts or been used to purchase something fun, but the girls had something else in mind. Wading River School fifth grader Gianna Horsford was asked what she was saving for, and she responded “the children at the children’s hospital.” She wrote a letter to the hospital sharing her kindness in words that included hoping the money will help to bring joy to the children who are receiving care there. Gianna’s family – mom, dad and younger sisters Mia and Natalia – took a special visit to Stony Brook Children’s to share their donation with the hospital staff.

Wading River School: Stewards of the Local Environment

Wading River School third graders took an informative field trip to Quogue Wildlife Refuge recently and visited the nature center, trails, gardens and greenhouse. They also learned about the important role a praying mantis plays in our ecosystem. True lovers of the environment, Wading River staff and students worked this week to place newly hatched praying mantes into small containers so our young student-scientists could bring them home. Students then released these beneficial insects into their gardens and yards, helping spread praying mantes throughout our community. Another exciting environmental opportunity for our SWR students!
