Principal's Message

October 2017

Dear Commack Road Families,

Thank you so much for everyone's support through the first month of school. I would like to thank all the parents, teachers and students for making the first month of school a great success. (#SuccessatCRES)

The transition of all of our new students and 2nd graders have gone very well. The first day of school we welcomed our youngest students, the Super 2nd Graders, to Commack Road. We also had a great time at the Homecoming Parade. We had a great showing that day and are looking forward to more community-wide events each year.

I would like to remind parents that the school doors open each day at 9:10 AM. It is very important that students are on time and are a part of the morning routines in class each day. The routines and procedures in the morning help to prepare the students for the day.

The month of October brings a lot of exciting events to Commack Road. On Monday, October 2nd we will be having a Fall Fundraiser Assembly Kick Off. Students will have the opportunity to earn and win great prizes for participating in our Fall Fundraiser. The monies raised will help fund Cultural Arts programs and defray the costs of field trips for all students. Please do what you can to participate.

We will close out the month of October by celebrating the Fall Season and Halloween. The PTA is hosting a Fall Family Fun Night here at Commack Road on Friday, October 27th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. The Islip Middle School Student Government will also be hosting a Halloween Spooktacular in the MS Cafeterias on Monday, October 30th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. You will be hearing directly from classroom teachers about classroom events in connection to Halloween.

Finally, I would like to remind parents that many people live with food allergies. Food allergy symptoms can range from irritation to death. Students should not be sent to school with any food, snack, or treat, which is intended to be shared or given out to other students. This can possibly create a hazardous and potential life threatening situation. Goodie bags and giveaways are not allowed to be distributed, and they will not be allowed to go home with a child on the bus. I appreciate your assistance and understanding with this procedure.

Once again, thank you so much for a great start to the 2017-2018 school year. I look forward to a great year or working together towards the success of every child here at Commack Road! #SuccessatCRES
