The district’s elementary and middle schools have been recognized as Distinguished Schools by Project Lead the Way for the 2019-2020 school year. 

For the fourth consecutive year, all seven of Smithtown’s elementary schools have been designated as Distinguished Launch Schools based on its PLTW Launch program in the 2019-2020 school year. Smithtown’s elementary schools represent seven of only 11 in New York to be recognized. Across the United States, only 374 Launch schools have received this distinction for 2020-2021.

For the third consecutive year, all three of Smithtown’s middle schools have been designated as Distinguished Gateway Schools based on their Gateway program in the 2019-2020 school year. Smithtown’s middle schools represent three of four in New York to be recognized. Across the United States, only 158 Gateway schools have received this distinction for 2020-2021.  

“This recognition is a result of the district’s continued commitment to providing all students with the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills through a STEM-based approach in the areas of biomedical science, computer science and engineering," said Paul Strader, assistant superintendent for curriculum and assessment.

It was a lesson in fairy tale favorites as students in Kimberly Passamonte’s second grade class at Mills Pond Elementary School studied the different versions of “Cinderella” from all around the world.

During their unit of study, the class read various “Cinderella” stories from different countries. The students made dioramas depicting a scene to highlight their favorite Cinderella around the world story. They wrote coordinating opinion essays to correspond to their chosen story and had to provide reasons why it was their favorite.

As a culminating activity, the students created FlipGrid videos reading their essays and explaining the scenes in their dioramas.
