South Orangetown Central School District

South Orangetown Middle School Interim Principal Dr. Chad Corey, School Support/Dean Michael Ryan and teachers Debra DiTuri, Christa Loughran-Mellozzo and Mary Ann Wood traveled to Verona, NY, to present at the 38th Annual New York State Middle School Association Conference today. Their presentation, “It Takes a Team! Ideas to Develop a School Culture and Program to Support All Students,” focused on learning structures and tools to support the development of a respectful and developmentally-responsive school culture. “Our team is always excited and find these presentations valuable in both reflecting on our practices and learning about the best practices of other middle schools,” reports Dr. Corey.
