OVERVIEW OF RILEY AVENUE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Riley Avenue
is one of four K-4 elementary schools in the district. It is located on Riley Avenue in the community of Calverton. It's a short one mile hike from the L.I. Sound. The Riley Avenue School is the most rural of the Riverhead schools--but no longer surrounded by fields. It's student population has grown to almost 600 students.

Riley has a full day kindergarten program, a self-contained special education JeanneGrimsmclass and a resource room.

Ms. Jeanne Grim is the Riley Avenue Assistant Principal. Ms. Grim's phone number is 369-6805. Her email address is jeanne.grim@riverhead.net.

"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. We are looking forward to a great year," states Riley Principal David Enos.

School Goals


  • 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 in the 2014-15 school year:

    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

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.
