A warm welcome to our newest staff! Each year an orientation is held to acclimate new staff to the district and introduce them to the culture of the community. In August, teachers new to the district had an opportunity to hear from veteran teaching staff, engage in hands-on practices designed to engrain a sense of teamwork and partnership, meet with leaders of curriculum and instruction, and hear from the administrative team along with Amelia Brogan, president of the Board of Education.
The 5th Annual Victoria Terenzi 5k run/walk will be held at Caumsett State Park on October 16th, honoring Breast Cancer Awareness month.

THERE IS ALSO A VIRTUAL OPTION for those who either would prefer to run on their own or who might not be able to make the Oct 16th date!
“It was such a privilege to welcome 238 students to West Side, where we celebrate the long history of our school which opened its doors 231 years ago! Each year, tradition is paramount with the “ringing of the school bell” which can be heard in every corner of the building. This moment was always shared with the former principal, Ted Hilton, who came to West Side each opening day long after he retired. He then joined the students at assembly sharing stories and helping to launch the new year. Since Mr. Hilton's passing last year, we are extremely fortunate to continue this tradition with two former teachers: Dr. Bonnie Dawkins and Mr. Scott Bowden, who stepped up sharing history and introducing West Side's September word ‘wonder’ at the start of the 2021 school year.
Thank you to our community for coming out to support this very special event, which honored our heroes on the 20th Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. We were joined by the military, police, fire department and first responders, as well as students, staff and community members who lost loved ones. The ceremony was held on Seahawk Field prior to the football game, and for those that were not able to attend that evening – please click on the links below for photographs and a video to share with our community. A very special thanks to Joe Monastero and his team for organizing this incredible evening.
Students in the Cold Spring Harbor Central School District, with an interest in scientific research, further enhanced their research skills by participating in the district’s summer science research program.
