Eleven Port Jefferson elementary and middle school string students in grades 5-8were selected to perform in the Intermediate Long Island String Festival on Jan. 27 at Hauppauge High School. Students were selected along with others from across Suffolk County on a competitive basis with New York State School Music Association scores as the main criteria along with teacher recommendations.

The district congratulates fifth-graders Mari Fukuto and Sadie Salzman; sixth-graders Caitlin Dickhuth, Ana Kelly, Meara Kelly and Vivian O' Brian; seventh-grader Anna Rebic; and eighth-graders Alexa Ayotte, Teppei Fukuto, Olivia Schlegel and Tabitha Schully for their hard work and musical participation!
