New Suffolk Common School

The official website for the New Suffolk Common School.

Built in 1907, New Suffolk School educates children in New Suffolk from grades Pre-K through 6.  Within the school’s three classrooms, under the guidance of outstanding teachers, students study the general subjects of English Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science. Also offered through part-time teachers are enrichment classes in Physical Education, Music, Art and Drama. 

🔔New Suffolk School's Newest Tradition🔔

If you are in New Suffolk at 8:30 am, Monday through Friday, you can be sure to hear our school bell ring to commemorate the start of the school day. 

Typically, one student enters the building to ring the bell, and it signals for the rest of our student body to enter. But why not change things up a bit? Moms and Dads wanted in on the action! Below are some great pictures of the students sharing their bell-ringing duties with their families. Enjoy!

🌼Spring has Sprung!🌷

New Suffolk School had a bunch of fun celebrating the first week of spring! Although it was a bit chilly, we braved the cold to brighten up our schoolyard. A big thanks to Mrs. Cooper and the NS Enrichment Fund for supplying us with beautiful pansies to plant. The students had a blast getting their hands dirty, and of course digging for worms!  

We warmed up inside with an enjoyable spring egg hunt! The children explored throughout the school to find their cleverly hidden treats!

Handwriting Contest- The Results are In!

During the first trimester of school, students in grades first through sixth participated in Zaner-Bloser's National Handwriting contest. The primary level wrote in print, and the intermediate level wrote in cursive.  

The students pictured below were selected to represent our school, by Zaner-Bloser, in the School Grade-Level competition. These students will then have their entries join thousands of other entries from across the nation to become State Grade-Level Winners, and so on until there is a National Grade-Level Champion.

Holiday Happenings

New Suffolk students have been participating in a variety of cultural holiday activities this week! 

On Monday, Mr. Verity led the way as we walked down to Legend's and New Suffolk Post Office to sing carols!   We are always grateful that Legend's and the Post Office welcome us!

Mrs. Ruschin and Mrs. Mauro invited the primary students' families into he their classroom to have a gingerbread house making party on Tuesday. Check out Mrs. Ruschin's blog for photos!

Today was quite the day! Today is known as "PJs and Pancakes" Day! The entire school dresses in their pjs, and we have a pancake lunch! The students started out listening to The Polar Express  read by our fantastic Board of Education president, Mr. Dill, who even wore his special Jammie's!

After lunch, the students had a fiesta with Mrs. Boutcher! As a Colombian native, Mrs. Boutcher shared her cultural traditions with everyone. She served up homemade Chocolate Caliente, pasteles with dulce de leche, and buñuelos! Mmmmm!

After Spanish class, Mrs. Ruschin shared one of her favorite holiday traditions: making reindeer food!

Finally, Mrs. Ruschin invited us all into her classroom to play a game her mother always played, an English game called "Pass the Parcel". After wrapping a present in ELEVEN layers of wrapping paper, we played a version of hot potato, and each time the music stopped, a student unwrapped a layer. At the end, was a fun surprise!
