DISTRICT OFFICIALLY OPENS FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR
The excessive heat did not wilt the spirits of students who toted their backpacks full of school supplies to start the 2018-19 school year on Sept. 4.
Members of the board of education, Superintendent of Schools John C. McNamara, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Dr. Marc Ferris and Assistant Superintendent for Business Adriana Silver joined the principals to welcome students as they disembarked from the bright yellow buses or arrived by carpools, ready to find their classrooms and get down to work.
Mr. McNamara said he was pleased with the district’s smooth opening. “The teachers and students were enthusiastic and instruction began immediately,” he said. “I am confident that this will be a productive and positive school year for all Wantagh students.”
Through a commitment to educational excellence in a secure, supportive environment, the Wantagh Public Schools shall inspire students to develop a strong sense of individual worth and respect for others, to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers, and to fulfill themselves as concerned citizens in a diverse world.
