Happy New School Year and welcome to 2017!

We encourage all of our students to take full advantage of all that IMS has to offer.  Best Wishes in the coming year.

Remember to look on this webpage, @islipms and on for future updates.

Happy New Year!

Miltenberg Named Assistant Principal of Middle School


Bryan Miltenberg has been named the new assistant principal of the middle school.

Before joining Islip’s team, Miltenberg most recently served as middle school dean at Scholars’ Academy in Rockaway, Queens, where he also worked as peer collaborative/lead teacher for humanities, professional learning team leader, seventh-grade team leader and seventh-grade humanities teacher. He began his career as an educator as an English teacher at Wantagh High School.

A resident of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Miltenberg earned his bachelor’s degree in American studies from Columbia University, his master’s degree in adolescent English education from Queens College and his school building leader certification from the College of Saint Rose’s Center for Integrated Teacher Education.

“I’m honored and grateful for the opportunity to serve the Islip community and be part of the Islip family,” said Miltenberg.

Community and Creativity Highlighted at Homecoming


With purple-clad well-wishers lining Main Street, and the Bucky the Buccaneer mascot leading the way, the Islip school community began its homecoming celebration on Sept. 16 with a proud parade, highlighted by floats created by each class at the high school.

First came the freshmen with a take on the Magic School Bus, followed by the sophomores’ Willy Wonka-themed float and the juniors’ winning Alice in Wonderland creation. The seniors and their Clifford the Big Red Dog float claimed the prize for most spirit. A festive carnival followed the parade.

“Islip’s students truly showed spirit for their school and commitment to their community, evident in the creative floats, a well-attended parade and a carnival that welcomed children of all ages,” said teacher Ann Gordon.

In their Suffolk III football contest later in the afternoon, Islip’s valiant varsity Bucs played hard but fell short against Bellport, with a final score of 37-20.

During halftime, the school’s marching band, cheerleaders and kickline put on spectacular shows. Billy Bowling was named homecoming king and Kassidy Mullins was crowned as homecoming queen, joined at center stage by their fellow homecoming court members Ryan Abravanel, Nicole Arey, Ashley Howell, Kristen Julich, Justin Kerr, Grace Klomp, John Luzzul, Kristopher McDonald, Gia Sciara and Sean Skahan.

“As always this year’s homecoming demonstrated how amazing this community is,” said Principal Michael Mosca. “It was great to see the entire town come together to support their school. Despite the score sheet, our boys played their hearts out for their community and the students came together to support one another. That’s really all you can ask for.”

First Day Is Full of Positive Energy at Islip’s Schools

First Day Is Full of Positive Energy at Islip’s Schools

From students to staff, principals to parents, the Islip school community were excited and ready for the year ahead as school began across the district on Sept. 5. Students took stock of their new classrooms, teachers, classmates and educational goals at the high school and middle school as well as Commack Road, Sherwood and Wing.

“The children arrived for their first day with refreshing, joyful smiles,” said Islip Middle School Principal Timothy Martin. “As a principal, I could not be prouder of the positive energy, and I wish everyone a happy new school year.”

“The starting of each school year brings great opportunity to reconnect with friends, have new experiences and set goals for success,” said Commack Road Principal James Cameron.

“The first day of school was great,” said Sherwood Principal Chad Walerstein. “It was good to see all of our returning students, and nice to welcome our newest students, the second-graders.”

“We're looking forward to another fantastic year,” said Michael Mosca, the principal of the high school. “We have continued to add to our an already impressive slate of courses and programs to prepare our students for their post secondary experience.”
