Cherry Avenue Pen Pals

  • Fifth Annual Pen Pal Day

    For four years, teachers Karen Hooks from Cherry Avenue Elementary School in Sayville and Sayville resident Mrs. Patty Schick from Albany Avenue School in Farmingdale School District have had their classes correspond as pen pals. This year was no different.


    All year long, Cherry Avenue First-graders in Ms. Karen Hooks’ class practiced writing with the Albany Avenue School students in Mrs. Schick’s First-grade class. The children enjoyed exchanging information and getting to know their new friends in another district through writing. Finally, at the Fifth Annual Pen Pal day held at the Albany Avenue School in June, the students met face-to-face for a day of games, ice cream, and giggles.
