Students in the Riverhead School District once again packed up their backpacks and boarded big yellow school buses for the first day of school in the 2011-12 school year.
Roanoke Avenue Elementary School principal Thomas Payton helped kindergartners off the buses which arrived at 8:45 Tuesday morning. He said that the school has 387 students registered so far, but he expects the number to go up to 390 by the end of the week — the most the school has ever had

Students in Terry Messina’s Riley Avenue Elementary second grade class got a visit from some fuzzy little creatures in honor of National Agriculture Week last Friday. County Legislator Ed Romaine (R-Center Moriches) and representatives from Hallockville Musuem Farm also visited the class, and the museum brought live chicks for the children to touch and hold.
Mr. Romaine read the book “Chicks and Chickens” by Gail Gibbons to the children and Hallockville donated the book to the school library.
