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. 

International Literacy Day (Week!)

September 8 is known as International Literacy Day. Because I love reading, I decided to extend this celebration through the entire week!  We kicked it off today with a bang! Parents will be visiting throughout the week during their child's ELA time to participate in our reading program.
