New ELA Programs Inspire Students


The Hampton Bays School District is proud to announce that it has initiated new English language arts programs in all of its schools this year. The programs aim to engage students in reading and assist them in meeting the Next Generation Standards.

Students at the elementary school are learning through the new Fountas & Pinell Literacy program, which uses interactive read alouds, book clubs and shared reading experiences to cultivate a greater love for reading. The middle school has adopted a new book club where each Friday, in class, students gather to discuss a book that they selected to read. At the high school, all students participated in a community read of “The Cage” by Ruth Minsky Sender. They enhanced their literary experience by participating in lessons and activities surrounding the reading, and even met the author.
