Third Wing Walk Connects Grads With Their Roots

Third Wing Walk Connects Grads With Their Roots

The high school’s most recent graduates had a chance to connect with their roots on June 19, participating in the third annual visit to Wing for a walk through the halls in their caps and gowns. Led by the Buccaneers mascot, the seniors paraded out to the playground, where they greeted the Wing kindergartners and first-graders.

“This was our biggest turnout yet,” said Islip High School Principal Michael Mosca, who developed the walk with Wing Principal Christopher Smalley. “The seniors were thrilled to have the opportunity to visit their former teachers and give out high-fives to the younger students. This has become a wonderful tradition that benefits both Wing and high school students. It allows our seniors to reflect on their entire educational journey and it gives our Wing students a glimpse into their future as Islip students.”

All of Islip's elementary schools offered afterschool book clubs for students this year. These clubs were funded through the district’s Title I grant. Pictured here are Commack Road's second-graders enjoying their final session.

Bringing awareness to neurofibromatosis, often abbreviated as NF, students at Wing learned about the disease during the month of May and collected coins to help fund Children’s Tumor Foundation conduct research to find a cure. At library time, the students read a book about an Islip student with NF and received coloring books with facts about the disease. Each week in May, students shared facts about NF during morning announcements. To culminate NF Awareness Month, Wing’s students ran a “Hero Dash,” complete with capes and a visit from Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi.

“Wing students are everyday heroes,” said teacher Lisa Dieumegard.
