Incoming Port Jefferson Middle School students became acquainted with their new school at the sixth-grade back-to-school pizza party.

Students met Middle School Principal Robert Neidig, Assistant Principal Claudia Smith and numerous teachers before taking a tour of the school and receiving their locker assignments. The festive atmosphere was the backdrop for the PTSA-sponsored pizza, beverages and flavored ices served by parent volunteers.

The annual welcome event helps to prepare students for their entry into the middle school, familiarize them with the layout of the school and is an opportunity to catch up with classmates from the elementary school and seek out new friendships for the upcoming year.
