Farmingdale teachers from across the district gathered on a recent Saturday morning to participate in a Long Island Writing Project (LIWP) workshop centered around teaching social comprehension.

This year, the Farmingdale School District implemented an elementary school initiative to get K-5 students moving in the classroom during their learning time. A committee of teachers, administrators, board of education members, and the district’s athletic director worked together to design a curriculum that would incorporate “healthy-mind healthy-body” habits into everyday lesson plans—and it’s proving to be a great success!
