Curious about any other animals on the North Fork? The eighth-graders can answer your questions. 

That’s because, as a class, they researched over 100 animal species that reside here, compiling all their information into a recently published book. The students also created illustrations of each animal, as well as nine habitats on the North Fork, to accompany the information. READ

I’m Beth Ficner. I’m the security guard here at Cutchogue East School.

I started working as a security guard in 2004. My normal day is to punch in at 7:30. I come in and go down to the cafeteria, where chorus and band is taking place. I go outside, help the kids off the bus with their instruments, make sure they get in safely. And then I basically stand outside there helping kids in and out of the car. The reason for me being out there helping with the cars is not only for their safety, but I enjoy greeting the kids, making them have a smile in the morning. Some kids have a rough time so I’ll crack a joke, and try to help them out of the car and start their day off a little bit smoother.  READ
