Alumni Day

ERHS Class of 2022 Students thumbnail237506

On November 23rd, East Rockaway welcomed back members of the Class of 2022 to participate in the 11th annual Alumni Day!

More than forty of our recent graduates shared insights to students in grades 7-12 about careers, college life, preparing for post-secondary plans, and adjusting to the new chapter in their lives. Their first-hand experience about transitioning from East Rockaway to their current institutions was meaningful for our current students and staff.

After the event concluded alumni were able to socialize amongst themselves and connect with former teachers over pizza.

Congrats to the ERHS community on a successful Thanksgiving Food Drive.

Over 131 boxes of non-perishable food items were collected and donated to Long Island Cares. The best part is that all the donations will stay right here on Long Island to help put food on the tables of underprivileged families during the holidays.

Thanksgiving Parade

The tradition continues as kindergartners took over the hallways of Rhame Avenue for their annual Thanksgiving Parade!

Wearing turkey costumes and holding balloons, they paraded by cheering students and teachers and made their way to the auditorium where parents were waiting to enjoy the festive spectacle.

The students sang songs for the parents and then joined them for photos and crafts.

Thanks to Ms. Drummy, Ms. Gorman and Ms. Banducci for making this a fun day for everyone!
