Principal's Message

June 2018

Wow, how time goes by! Seems like just yesterday we were picking pumpkins as we welcomed our students to a new school year. 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 school year of learning.

At this time, please review the information below 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 also 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 cafeteria and some other behind the scene electrical upgrades. If the work is completed and the building is safe for visitors, school visits will be limited to the latter part of August. Please call the main office 631-650-8500 at that time to schedule a visit.

Have a joyful and safe summer!

Timothy P. Martin, 



Educational Eating: Sixth-Graders Take Walking Food Tour of Islip

Educational Eating: Sixth-Graders Take Walking Food Tour of Islip

Sixth-graders in the district’s EXCEL program took a wonderful walking food tour on Islip’s Main Street on May 18, accompanied by EXCEL coordinator Julia Johnson and FACS teacher Natalie De Sena.

The 25 participating middle schoolers began their day with an educational visit to Tellers steakhouse. Next door at the Italian restaurant Verace, they learned how to make meatballs with Executive Chef Mike Maneri. Lunch at Pizza Parm was up next, where the students watched Pizza Parm General Manager Lorenzo Magliulo toss pizzas. He gave them a ball of raw dough to examine before they chowed down on fresh pies and garlic knots. The tour concluded with a stroll down to Coyle’s Ice Cream, where they learned how to make ice cream and decorate cakes with John Proto. 

“The planning was a year in the making,” said Johnson regarding the tour. “Natalie and I started working on it last spring. We thought a walking food tour would be an ideal way to connect kids with their community and to provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of people pursuing their passions and the business of owning and running a restaurant or local business. It was a huge success and we hope to make it an annual trip.”
