Aquebogue Elementary School serves students in Kindergarten through fourth grade in the Riverhead Central School District. Our school is committed to being a supportive, nurturing environment in which students learn to overcome challenges and thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. We are proud of the exceptionally strong instruction and support we provide not just in the general education classroom but also in special education, English as a New Language, and reading, as well as through the work of our psychologist, social workers, nurse, and speech, physical, and occupational therapists.

Riverhead’s Parent University Series Resumes thumbnail178024
The Riverhead Central School District is poised to regenerate its popular Parent University series, which was placed on hold due to COVID-19.

The series will pick up on Thursday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. via Zoom. The live session will focus on technology. Topics to be covered will include: Navigating the Seesaw Platform, Digital Resources for Learning, Managing Remote Learning through Clever, Navigating Google Classroom for Parents, and Social-Emotional Learning Resources. Parents wishing to join the session can find login information via the district’s new Parent University page,

All sessions will be recorded for follow-up viewing. Parents are also encouraged to offer suggestions for future Parent University sessions by using the suggestion form located on the Parent University web page.

The Parent University series aims to connect parents with school and community resources and provide information related to challenges parents may face. Additional workshops and seminars featuring a variety of speakers are planned for later this school year.


Hybrid Assemblies Recognize Students

With traditional assemblies on hold due to COVID-19, Aquebogue Elementary School has been hosting monthly “hybrid” assemblies to recognize students’ accomplishments.

“In this challenging time, it’s more important than ever to find ways to stay upbeat and recognize all of the positives within our four walls, even when there is so much that’s negative outside,” said Principal Bryan Miltenberg.

The assemblies are livestreamed and broadcasted to each of the school’s classrooms, allowing the Student of the Month honorees to shine while being socially distanced. Each month features fun activities — during November’s assembly, for example, the entire school did burpees together to bring them over a goal of 50,000 burpees for cancer research.

“Understanding that we can accomplish more when we collectively care and act will be a lesson the children can take with them and apply almost constantly in their school, homes and communities,” said Assistant Principal Gary Karlson.

Veterans Appreciation Webinar

Virtual and in-person third and fourth grade students at Aquebogue Elementary School had a unique opportunity to hear from four U.S. veterans during the school’s Veterans Appreciation Webinar on Nov. 4. 

The virtual event kicked off with third grader Lila Corwin leading participants in the Pledge of Allegiance. First to speak was the school’s head custodian, Erik Dal, who described his responsibilities while serving as a sergeant artilleryman. Students also heard from James Lewis and Patricia Lewis, who talked about their experiences as a lawyer and a judge, respectively, for the Army. Mr. Lewis discussed his major responsibility of ensuring that the Army followed through on contracts it awarded for multimillion-dollar projects. Mrs. Lewis explained how she was drawn to the opportunity to serve her country while studying law. 

Rounding out the speakers was Vietnam War veteran Barry Gilmore, who answered students’ questions about wartime events and noted that the discipline required in the Army had served him well.
