Seaford Harbor Elementary School students got to meet their new principal, Jennifer Bisulca. Perhaps known to their older siblings, Ms. Bisulca took on the role after serving as assistant principal at the middle school. She greeted students and parents at morning arrival and visited classrooms throughout the day.

Ninth graders in Kathryn Pallini’s English class wrote letters to their future selves that they will read on the last day of school.

In kindergarten classrooms, Seaford’s newest students learned about different routines, such as where to put their backpacks and lunch boxes, and how to line up when they leave the room. There were also plenty of introductory activities for the children, who will be together until their graduation in June of 2036.

At Seaford High School, it was the Class of 2024 that marked its last first day of school. They wore their senior shirts and used a photo station outside to document the occasion. At the end of the day, they lined up in the courtyard to form a “24” for the senior yearbook photo.

Incoming ninth graders spent the day getting acclimated to their new surroundings. In earth science, they took part in a getting-to-know-you bingo game while in English, they wrote letters about their first-day feelings, which they will get back at the end of the year. The goal was to show them how to capture a moment of their lives in words.
