Principal's Message

Welcome to Wing Elementary School! Wing Elementary School is the only primary school in the Islip School District. Islip education begins at Wing and over 340 students are welcomed in both kindergarten and first grade classes. The staff at Wing works tirelessly to ensure that the first educational experience of our youngest learners exists in a healthy, safe and supportive learning environment. Wing is dedicated to the District's Mission Statement: "The Islip Schools, in partnership with the community, will empower all students to achieve excellence." Our goal is to foster a learning environment where students feel appreciated, validated, respected and acknowledged. Wing welcomes all types of learners and the staff creates an environment conducive to each students' learning style. Students are given personal learning pathways that will allow them to acquire and retain the knowledge and skills to help them grow. Differentiating instruction creates these unique pathways that allow teachers to meet individual needs of students. This is done with the goal of engaging our students and helping them to develop a love of learning.

Healthy connections between the school and families gives students a greater opportunity to be successful. When schools and families work together, children do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more. Wing is committed to working with families to create learning experiences that are lasting and meaningful.

Michael Giacchetto, Ed.D.

At the close of the school year, Wing received a fabulous new literacy-enhancing book vending machine, thanks to a donation by Wing’s PTA. Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine, created by the the Global Vending Group, holds 200-300 books and can feature up to 20 different books, accessible to students via special golden tokens.

To celebrate the end of kindergarten, Melissa Kelley’s class at Wing are holding an End-of-the-School-Year Alphabet Countdown. Starting exactly 26 days before the last day of school, the students are working through the alphabet, with a different letter-based focus and theme for each day such as Ball Day, Chalk Day, Flying Day and Ice Pop Day.

“My students have been enjoying this added fun at this special time of year,” Kelly said.
