English as a New Language students in the Riverhead Central School District continued their learning and bolstered a variety of skills through a thematic program at Phillips Avenue School.

The annual three-week, half-day program engages K-6 students in creative lessons that reinforce concepts in math, science, vocabulary, reading and writing. 

This year, fifth- and sixth-graders culminated the program by hosting an interactive gallery walk for younger students. Their presentations demonstrated different aspects of the topics the older students had studied, including energy flow in a food chain, locating ecosystems of various animals on a world map, and concepts related to interdependence and erosion.
