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. 

OVER the River, and THROUGH the Woods

There was excitement IN the air- literally-IN my 4th, 5th, and 6th grade ELA class. The students learned all about PREPOSITIONS and PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES. After an interactive Smartboard lesson, and whole-group practice, we listened to the song Over the River and Through the Wood  and found 39 prepositional phrases! 

Next, the students were given instructions to build a paper airplane and throw it- yes- we flew paper planes IN class!
