Riley has a full day kindergarten program, a self-contained special education class and a resource room.
"As always, please feel free to contact us with any ideas that you have that will further the education of our students. It is a pleasure to be your school administrators" states Riley Principal David Enos.
Riley Avenue had a 1st place winner and 2 honorable mentions in the science fair at BNL.
SCHOOL-WIDE GOALS AT RILEY AVENUE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
At Riley, we want our pupils to truly enjoy their lower primary years as they learn and grow.
We want to recognize our parents for their ongoing support of our school. We welcome and appreciate you as partners in the education of our students. The solid home/school connection that we have at Riley Avenue is one of the main reasons why we have been successful.
The following areas continue as goals:
1. Emphasis on comprehension and critical thinking across the curriculum that reflects current expectations.
2. Continued implementation of all aspects of our balanced literacy approach, with special attention to writing, including quality, stamina, and volume
3. Character education with an ongoing emphasis on community service, a.k.a. “Riley Reaches Out.”
4. Maintaining a safe learning environment, including anti-bullying initiatives and ongoing safety drills.
5. Wellness, with an emphasis on healthy choices.
SPECIAL PROGRAMS AT RILEY AVENUE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Riley Avenue has a strong cultural arts committee which offers programming that stimulates student interest in the arts through programs like the Author or Artist in Residence program. All areas of the curriculum celebrate student learning: social studies and science lessons, class-to-class reading and math buddies, a schoolwide art show, publishing parties and celebrations and many, many community partnerships provide safety programs and service learning experiences.
Many of Riley's parents bring their expertise into the
classroom to provide enrichment to the curriculum through special
reading and writing programs or through some application of their
scientific knowledge. The Parents as Reading Partners (PARP) Week is a fun reading event that usually occurs in March.
Riley's Before School Childcare (i.e., Riley's Kids) program is often the organizing arm that involves the entire school in efforts to reach out to the Riverhead community through clothing and food drives, or special knitting projects for children in the hospital, letters and supplies for soldiers in Iraq, or gift bags for shut-ins.
