  • Another school year has come and gone.  They seem to fly by so fast.

    I hope you are looking forward to a relaxing summer break. I am wishing you a summer filled with much laughter, bright sunny days and wonderful times with family and friends.

    While you are enjoying, try to spend some time reading a good book. I have discovered recently the value of an wonderful application called Overdrive (https://meet.libbyapp.com/). This application supported by the public library offers patrons thousands of ebooks and audio books to borrow free of charge. You can borrow these book instantly and use any of your devices.  Give it a try! I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Remember that your public library has many wonderful library programs going on throughout the summer. Tap into that fabulous resource (https://hauppaugelibrary.org/ or https://www.smithlib.org/). 

    Get an early start on your summer reading assignment for your English Language Arts class for the 2018-2019 scholl year.  Check out the link to the left.


    All the best for a peace-filled summer vacation,
