In preparation for the 2016-17 school year, Levittown sixth-grade students attended orientation assemblies at Jonas E. Salk and Wisdom Lane middle schools to assist the incoming students to become familiar with the school and its policies and procedures.
Jonas Salk Middle School principal John Zampaglione and assistant principal Patrick Mulligan advised the sixth-graders to be organized, work hard and ask questions. The school’s junior leaders also assisted the newcomers with opening their locks, many for the first time, and locating their lockers and classrooms. At the end of the program, the students were taken on a tour of the building.
Wisdom Lane sixth-graders also attended orientation with their parents, who were greeted by principal John Avena, assistant principal Craig Arvelo-Shaw and other members of the administration and faculty. They learned about a typical day schedule, classroom transitions, key policies and the parent portal. After the assembly, the students were invited to find their homerooms and to practice opening their lockers.
