Play All Day

February 11, 2021

While the Riverhead School District’s Global Play Day looked different due to COVID-19 restrictions, the annual event on Feb. 3 still fostered collaboration and social interaction among students at Aquebogue and Riley Avenue elementary schools.

At Riley, students created a multitude of art projects and played socially distanced games. The same was true at Aquebogue, where teachers created fun and creative play opportunities.

The full-day event was brought to the district two years ago by the third grade team at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School in hopes that it would inspire families to plan for more unstructured play time during non-school hours while also developing students’ social and imaginative skills.
