Ten of the youngest students at the Gotham Avenue School in Elmont were recognized as Academic Achievers for the month of September.

“Children who experience their first taste of school have to make a big adjustment,” said Barbara Pignataro, Gotham Avenue assistant to the principal. “We are so proud of these students who went from timid and shy the first days of school to confident and able learners – they are our academic achievers!”

Pre-kindergartners, Natalie Anyanwu and Ayden Rivera, along with eight kindergartners Alford Carbon, Kristen Cherfilus, Maxaline Delorme, Jordan Lugg, Justin Lugg, Bradley Vendryes, Jennifer Ventura-Rocha and Courtinee Walker, were given certificates and personal congratulations from Pignataro.

The mission of the Elmont Union Free School District is to “reach and teach for excellence,” which means continually improving instruction and increasing student achievement. Dedication to this goal is what has earned Elmont New York State recognition for its “High Performing/Gap Closing Schools,” and as a state “model for school success.” In partnership with the community, the district holds its students to the highest standards while maintaining one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in Nassau County.
