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.

Guided by music teachers Mike Baur and Deanna Cupolo, Wing recently presented a virtual kindergarten spring concert, with students performing along to songs like “Hey Bunny,” “Adios Amigos” and “Mr. Sun” to the delight of parents.

“Wing is full of such young talented individuals,” said Principal Michael Giacchetto. “This is one of the best parts to the end of the year.”

A Wave Parade on May 12 for Wing brought out more than 40 cars filled with school helpers, staff members and teachers. 

“It was by far the best day Wing has had since our school closed,” said Principal Michael Giacchetto. “To see the children again and read their signs was extremely uplifting. Our community rallied to make this parade so successful, and we are lucky to be connected to such a phenomenal group of community members that helped make it a reality.”
