School Vision Statement

Our school is a community of learners where we focus on the social, emotional, and academic growth of each child. We strive to establish in each student a strong academic and personal foundation through high quality instructional experiences and school-wide adoption of "Rachel's Challenge" principles. The principles are:

  1. Start a chain reaction of kindness
  2. Accept and include others
  3. Be a positive influence
As a result, we have created a school climate that is conducive to learning. Our students are able to achieve academic success in a safe, nurturing environment.

Students Place in Statewide Math Competition

Students and faculty thumbnail246976
The Three Village Central School District made its mark in Albany at the First in Math Statewide Math Tournament. Nassakeag Elementary School students Catherine Hu, Talinn Kim and Easton Tang came in first place for all of third grade in New York State, whereas W.S. Mount Elementary School students Aurna Chakraborty, Michael Gerber and Isaac Wang came in second place for first grade.

Back in March, these students won the First in Math Regional Contest for their respective grade levels, which qualified them to advance to the in-person state competition.

At the state contest, the first graders competed with a “ten-wheel game” and third graders competed with a “factor wheel game.” All Three Village students made it to the final round, where they had to make a presentation using precise mathematical language to present the strategies they used while making the wheels. They also had to model the equations they used to make 10 or find a common factor.

The district congratulates these students on their achievements and for representing Three Village at the state level.

Paying it Forward with Paws

Students at Nassakeag Elementary School were visited by a four-legged friend who helped teach them the importance of paying it forward.

Local author Sarah Zagaja visited Nassakeag to read her story, “Raising Betty.” “Raising Betty” paints the picture of how Zagaja and her family raised a golden retriever puppy to become a guide dog. They began raising guide dogs as a way to pay forward the kindness they received after losing their home in a fire. Now Zagaja spreads her message of “Paying it Forward with Paws” to students across the area.

During Zagaja’s first visit to Nassakeag Elementary, she brought her therapy dog Fenway. Fenway was initially trained to be a guide dog and showed off some of her tricks to students during an assembly. Students learned the dos and don’ts of how to interact with therapy and service dogs, as well as they many ways they benefit humans’ lives.

Fenway has been visiting classrooms at Nassakeag Elementary School since her first visit. Students were excited to interact with her and it was evident Fenway brought joy to each and every classroom.

Six Three Village Central School District students qualified to advance to the statewide First In Math competition. Congratulations to first graders Aurna Chakraborty, Michael Gerber and Isaac Wang from W.S. Mount Elementary School and third graders Catherine Hu, Talinn Kim and Easton Tang from Nassakeag Elementary School.

Last month, these students faced other Long Islanders in the virtual First In Math Regional Contest. They participated in different challenges to test math skills including fact fluency, automaticity, problem-solving and procedural fluency. They did exceptionally well and will now participate in the in-person statewide championship event.

The statewide championship event will be held at SUNY Albany in May. At this competition, students will use game cards competitively in a group setting to demonstrate their conceptual understanding of several skills. In addition to the six Three Village students who will be attending, two Setauket Elementary School teachers will be judges — Lisa Wall and Joanne Walters.

The district congratulates these students and wishes them the best of luck in the competition.
