Principal's Message

Terryville Elementary is an intermediate school of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.  We serve a population of approximately 480 students in the Comsewogue School District. We are dedicated to creating a learning environment that is safe and nurturing and enables our students to meet the demands of a changing, dynamic society.

Terryville participates in a Balanced Literacy Program which is a classroom based comprehensive program.  It is designed to increase literacy achievement for all students by providing a framework of reading, writing and word study practices.

School Business Partnership is important to us as a school community. Our annual career day is a spectacular event.  Many members of the business community volunteer their time to share their expertise with our students.

Our school offers countless opportunities for students to grow and succeed. Participation in a variety of experiences helps each child discover and develop to his or her full potential. Terryville offers after school club activities, which include Art Club, Drama Club, Science Research Club, and Student Council leadership opportunities. Our music program is top notch. The Band, Orchestra and Chorus perform two concerts a year, as well as other informal events throughout the school year.

Terryville is fortunate to have a dedicated PTA that is extremely supportive of our school initiatives. The PTA provides students with cultural activities, family fun nights, book fairs and many wonderful experiences. Mrs. Pamela Andresen, our PTA President, and her Executive Council, work diligently throughout the school year to help make the school an exciting place to learn. Parents are invited to attend the monthly PTA meetings and encouraged to get involved and volunteer to help run one or more of the many programs the PTA sponsors. To foster our supportive environment, parents and teachers need to work together as partners in educating the children we share. Working together, we can strive for academic excellence and ensure a life long love of learning.
