What's New with The Opening Word
Women's History Month

During the month of March, students will be honoring famous women who have made an impact on our society. Students will be researching a woman of their choice using the computer, creating a PowerPoint about the woman and presenting it to their fellow classmates. Stay tuned for updates on the projects!
Reading in Wyandanch

​Christine Guerrico, Co-President of the Reading Council of Suffolk County, visited our Wyandanch site on Friday, March 2. She came to celebrate Read Across America day and the birthday of Dr. Seuss by reading a book and discussing it. After, she gave new books to each of the students and conducted a book swap between students. She will be in Wyandanch two more times, and she is working on visiting our other two sites. Thanks for the visit Christine!!

New Citizens

We'd like to take a moment to recognize some of our students who have passed their citizenship test. This year we have had 6 new citizens throughout the three different sites. Featured in these pictures are two of our students from Amityville who recently gained citizenship. Congratulations to all of our new citizens! Keep up the good work!!
Recognition Ceremony

As we enter the month of March, we look forward to our recognition ceremony at the end of the year. This is a time to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and recognize the hard work they exhibit all year. Each site will hold its own recognition ceremony at different dates. More information will follow as the end of the year gets closer.
