North Babylon’s William E. DeLuca Elementary School greeted students and their families with a welcome back picnic on Friday, Sept. 7. With the weather on their side, students, their families and teachers enjoyed a warm afternoon of playing on the playground, greeting old friends and meeting new ones, and enjoying games and music. The annual PTA-sponsored event also collected nonperishable food items that will be donated to the Town of Babylon Food Pantry.

“Tonight is a great way for the kids and their families to socialize and get to know one another in a relaxed environment,” said committee chair Jennifer Ripp. Added Principal Norann McManus, “We kicked the school year off with a great start, and tonight is a wonderful way to wind down after such a fabulous first week of school.”
