Giacchetto Apppointed as Principal of Wing

Giacchetto Apppointed as Principal of Wing

Michael Giacchetto was recently appointed principal of Islip’s Wing Elementary School, replacing Christopher Smalley, the current assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction.

He previously served for the past four years as assistant principal at West Islip’s Udall Road Middle School, and prior to that as an elementary teacher at South Ocean Middle School and Medford Elementary School in the Patchogue-Medford School District.

Giacchetto, who resides in Center Moriches, earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Dowling College, a master’s degree in business administration from Dowling College and educational leadership certificates from St. John’s University.

“Educational leadership is a collaborative venture that requires a shared leadership approach to enact the change necessary for success in a school system,” said Giacchetto. “As the leader of the building, it is my responsibility to create a collaborative culture by being a source of clarity and direction, and a provider of resources.  This takes the focus off of changing an individual teacher and instead focuses on changing the school into many strong, capable teachers working together towards a common goal, the success of all students.”

The first day of classes in Islip arrived on Sept. 5, with students in the district’s high school, middle school and Commack Road, Maud S. Sherwood and Wing elementary schools arriving to begin a new year of learning.

“I am so proud to be the principal of Islip Middle School, where the kids bring the innocence and joy that can easily be overlooked in our fast-paced world,” said Timothy Martin. “I am looking forward to an exciting year.”

“It was a great first day for the students at Sherwood,” said Principal Chad Walerstein. “It was nice to see all the new and returning smiling faces as they entered, and it was even better to hear students say how great their day went as they left for the day.”
