Principal's Message


June 2017


Greetings Visitors:  
                                                            
It seems like just yesterday we were walking the halls on the first day of school and welcoming parents to our 2016-2017 “Meet the Teacher Night.” Wow, how time goes by.  I would like to congratulate our eighth grade students for a job well done. Good luck to you as you once again have the opportunity to set new goals as you begin your High School journey.  To our returning students, we look forward to your leadership in the coming school year as we welcome our new sixth graders.

As we all know, technology is playing a greater role in education today.  Islip Middle School has invested in a unique internet based education tool called Castle Learning which will enable students to create their own review sessions or receive assigned sessions from teachers over the summer.  Students can log onto Castle Learning to keep fresh on all subjects.  During the month of July you will receive information about the program and instructions for its use.  Students are encouraged to utilize this program to stay current during the summer months and return in September ready to embark on a new year of learning.

At this time, you will have received information mailed home in regard to the final exam schedule.  Included are bus schedules that will be followed on those days.  It is important to take note of the dates and times your child will need to be in attendance.  The bus times and stops also vary.  The information can be found on the Middle School eBoard.

Finally, there continues to be a good deal of work going on in and around the Middle School.  We look forward to a renovated auditorium and many more behind the scenes improvements.  Visits will be limited to the latter part of August. Please call the main office 650-8500 at that time to schedule a visit.

Have a joyful and safe summer!  

Rspectfully,
Timothy P. Martin

Islip Honors Five Special Olympians

Prior to the 2017 Special Olympics Spring Games of the South Shore, the district held a pep rally to honor its participating athletes: Morgan Barry, Conor Brennan, Daniel Burns, Claire Constantino and Donovan Zecchini. All five had trained hard for two months prior, working with coaches Dave Claps and Patty Whitehouse as well as several student mentors.

More than 100 people packed the middle school auditorium for the rally to honor the athletes. The high school and middle school bands played onstage while youth cheerleaders performed, led by high school student Marissa Esposito, and Islip Booster Club President Terry Going presented each athlete with a certificate of participation. Following the celebration, the attendees moved to the cafeteria for carnival games provided by the high school’s National Honor Society, a photo booth and banner decorating by the middle school’s National Junior Honor Society, frame making by SEPTA, pennant decorating by local Girl Scouts troops, and refreshments served by Islip teachers.

A bus departed early in the morning of May 7 carrying 40 Islip student volunteers, led by Kerri Schmalaker, to cheer on Islip’s Special Olympians as they competed for medals at the big event, held at Bellport High School. 

“As our athletes walked in the opening ceremony parade with their nine mentors, you could hear the roar from the Islip cheering section, all dressed in purple and waving rally towels,” said Superintendent Susan Schnebel. “The smiles on the faces of our athletes were priceless.”

Throughout the day, the Islip five competed in several track and field events, including the 50-meter, 100-meter, 800-meter, shot put and 4x100 relay, with their coaches and student mentors at their sides, then stood on the podium with a sense of pride and accomplishment to receive their medals. 

“The entire Islip community rallied together to make this special event happen, but the real heroes were all the athletes who competed in the Special Olympics,” Schnebel said.


Islip’s Family and Consumer Science Program Earns Recognition

 Students at the high school and middle school recently participated in the 2017 Long Island Family and Consumer Sciences Challenge, in which they competed to create innovative and user-friendly projects that take new approaches to real-life challenges.
 
Each challenge required students to complete an application and follow the LIFACS four-point scale rubric. Guided by FACS teachers Natalie Hamilton and Heidi Stevens, the Islip students developed their projects to submit to the LIFACS competition.
 
Three Islip students took home first-place awards in three different categories for both middle school and high school divisions. Sixth-graders Kyle Widecki and Emily Wirth were named grand prize winners in the “Let Them Eat Cake” and “It’s Not Easy Being Green” challenges. Junior Nancy Pramanand was the grand prize “Snack Attack” winner. Each winning student received a $100 cash prize and certificate.
 
Additionally, Hamilton was awarded the Promising New Professional Award for Suffolk County, recognizing her excellence in the classroom and her profession.
 
Islip’s winners were subsequently honored at the LIFACS Spring Professional Development Conference, held on April 28 at Fox Hollow in Woodbury.
