Island Trees In Washington, D.C.

From May 8-10, Island Trees Memorial Middle School’s eighth grade class embarked on an incredible adventure to our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. 

 

During the trip, the eighth graders met with politicians, visited historic monuments, explored some of our national museums, and experienced the culture of one of the most important cities in the world. 

 

We are proud that students had such a great time and that these memories will last a lifetime. On the first day, students visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial, World War II Memorial and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. 

 

On May 9, students visited with Rep. Peter King on the steps of the Capitol building. During their visit, the students also were treated to a surprise visit with House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner. After, students visited the Supreme Court building, the Holocaust Museum,

Arlington National Cemetery, President John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy’s Memorials, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Mast of the U.S.S. Maine, Memorial to the Challenger and Columbia, the Iwo Jima Memorial and the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial. 

 

On their last day, students went on a tour of the White House and visited the Smithsonian museums of Air and Space, Natural History, American History and the National Zoological Park. 

 

What an incredible experience this was for all the Island Trees eighth grade students.

Firehouse Subs announces the grand opening of its first Long Island location in Levittown on Oct. 17. The award-winning fast casual restaurant chain is famous for serving premium meats and cheeses steamed piping hot and piled high on a toasted sub roll, which is served “Fully Involved” with fresh produce and condiments. Founded by former firefighting brothers, the restaurant’s firehouse décor is based on the founding family’s decades of fire and police service, and the new location is decorated with firefighter memorabilia from the Levittown Fire Department.

Despite the national media attention about Ebola in recent weeks, there is one virus that is actually affecting Long Islanders, Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), with one of the first cases identified in North Hempstead on Sept. 18 and a recent case on Oct. 15 in Suffolk County, which school officials called for the closing of school, as a health precaution. 

 

The Levittown School District has been vigilant with the increase of cases in general. “We are continuing to implement the precautions provided by the health department and the CDC,” said Levittown School District Assistant Superintendent for Administration and Personnel Darlene Rhatigan. “We are also reminding students and staff to be mindful of the importance of proper hygiene including frequent hand washing.”
