Over 100, Riverhead Central School District students in grades 1 through 8 are developing new skills through the district’s summer special education extended school year program.

Through the six-week, half-day program, held at Phillips Avenue School, students’ skills in all subject areas are being strengthened through an engaging curriculum.

While younger students, participate in lessons related to emotions, the weather and days of the week, older students study multiplication, division and reading comprehension in small groups and use an online platform, called Schoology to research endangered species and collaborate with their peers. Additionally, students watch educational videos and color maps related to North and South America.

“The program is a wonderful opportunity for students to expand and strengthen their knowledge in a supportive environment,” said Deborah Smidt, program director.
