James Cameron, Principal
I would like to formally welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year at Commack Road Elementary School. CRES is an exciting place, and I am excited to be starting my first year as the principal of such a wonderful learning environment.
The entire staff at CRES has been working feverishly to get our building ready in time for the first day of school, Tuesday, September 5th. We have a lot of new additions and upgrades to our building. I look forward to sharing them with you at our Meet the Teacher Night that is scheduled for Monday, September 18th. The evening will begin with a supportive services (AIS) presentation in the Library at 6:30 p.m., followed by classroom presentations at 7:00 p.m.
The District is making a concerted effort to "Go Green" in as many ways as possible. With this initiative in mind, there are many items that you will find on the District website at islipufsd.org and on the recently created CRES Community eBoard at CRES.islip.site.eboard.com
. Examples of items that are being provided electronically are the Code of Conduct, District Attendance Letter, School Calendar, Lunch Menus, and the Student Handbook.
In addition, I encourage you to follow CRES on Twitter @IslipCRES. We are also asking all parents to update their email address on file through Infinite Campus using the red census card enclosed in the summer mailing. This will help us in communicating electronically as often as we can. Please remember that all electronic resources can be accessed on your smart phones or at the Islip Public Library located at 71 Monell Avenue if you do not have a home computer.
It is the goal of the CRES community to have as many stakeholders involved on a daily basis. I invite all parents, teachers, staff and community leaders to join the CRES PTA with me. The PTA is an integral part of the success of our school and each student. You will find a membership form online and enclosed.
Communication and information are key to the success of each individual student. I ask you to stay informed by following us on Twitter, visiting the CRES eBoard, and by attending school and PTA events as often as possible. You may also reach out at any time by calling the school or emailing me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, I cannot express to you how excited I am to have been named the principal at Commack Road Elementary School. I look forward to working with each and every community member, parent, student and staff member to help CRES achieve it fullest potential. Together we will provide authentic, memorable moments for our children that will prepare them for life in middle school, high school and beyond! My family and I look forward to meeting you at the many CRES, District and community events in the year ahead.
James F. Cameron
