William Floyd Elementary School recently hosted its 15th annual Museum Day, a fun-filled day of educational activities in which representatives from various Long Island museums, laboratories, art galleries and other institutions visit the school’s classrooms to show students the exciting and interesting activities that are available right here on Long Island.
“It was an amazing day for our students,” said Dr. Keith Fasciana, Principal, William Floyd Elementary School. “They were able to experience what it was like to visit many of Long Island’s amazing museums and educational organizations without leaving our school.”
“Museum Day is always an amazing experience for our children,” said Margaret Finne, William Floyd Elementary School librarian. “This year we had more organizations than ever before help us kick off the new school year with educational experiences. We worked with all these amazing volunteers and developed lessons that brought learning to life. Just watching the children’s’ face light up when they are participating is quite remarkable.”
