The district’s SCOPE Islip Summer Explorations program, hosted at the high school this summer, offered students entering first through fifth grades an opportunity to participate in a variety of classes from sports and nature, to cooking, clay making and technology.

Organized by business teacher Joe Modica, who serves as the program’s dean, Summer Explorations was facilitated by Sherwood Elementary School nurse Ann Maria Ferry. Robin Ahlers and Karen Volkman, both teachers at Islip High School, helped to ensure a fun-filled summer with their respective courses, “LEGO Builder’s Club,” which encouraged students to use their imaginations to build structures and characters following a daily theme, and “Let’s Get Cooking,” where students made various meals such as tacos, smoothies and chocolate chip cookie lasagna. Other program instructors included Islip Middle School teachers Sue Davis, Laura Greco and Jessica Wilkow.

“No matter what class the students were involved in, they are sure to have had an exciting and educational summer,” said Modica.
