Welcome to Islip Middle School
Dear Parents / Guardians:
Spring has definitely arrived! There is plenty of bottled up energy and it is great to see the students enjoying outside recess. Weather permitting, we will be outside each day, so they should dress appropriately.
May brings many events including the district budget and trustee election which will be held May 21 from 6AM to 9PM in the high school gym. Our middle school students in grades 6 and 7 will vote for student government officers for the 2013-2014 school year and grade 8 students will vote for King and Queen of the Conga Line for the 8th grade Moving Up Dance.
We are entering the final exam season and changes in schedules will occur. Parents should review planners to note any subject-specific information. We are waiting on details from our transportation office in reference to buses during the finals week. Once we have this information we will share it with you.
There will also be a number of end-of-year activities sponsored by the PTA and various clubs. It is important to note that all activities must be school supervised. Students should not bring “party foods” (cupcakes, cake, cookies, fast food items, etc.) into the cafeteria to share with other students. This is in effect all year. Staff members must arrange all parties.
We look forward to an exciting end to the year.
Timothy P. Martin
