Welcome to Wing Elementary School!
As the only primary school in the district, Wing provides the first public educational experience for the community’s 400+ kindergarten and first graders. Our staff is committed to ensuring that students and their families feel safe, secure and nurtured as they begin their education. We are dedicated to the Islip School District’s Mission Statement: “The Islip Schools, in partnership with the community, will empower all students to achieve excellence.” Our goal is for each student to master the skills needed to be a lifelong learner and to understand the joy and power of learning.

All children have different experiences and backgrounds by the time they get to Wing. As a primary school, we recognize these differences and work with each student to ensure that our instruction is differentiated to meet their needs. On a daily basis, Wing students engage in a variety of activities that help them develop a love of learning. The educational setting at Wing consistently focuses on the skills students need to be successful, both socially and academically.

We also recognize the importance of working together with the families of each child to create healthy communication between home and school. Our efforts to support each student are increased when we can consistently collaborate with parents and guardians. The teachers and staff members at Wing have a great deal of professional experience in all areas of child development. We are committed to working with each of you to create a stellar educational experience for your child.

The district has once again been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from the NAMM Foundation, recognizing’s Islip’s outstanding commitment to music education.

The Best Communities for Music Education designation, now in its 19th year, is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. To qualify for the Best Communities designation, Islip answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program and community music-making programs. Responses were verified with school officials and reviewed by the Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas.

“Music instruction has always been a part of the fabric here in Islip,” said Vincent Green, director of fine and performing arts. “Being recognized for our diligence on a national level strengthens our resolve to continue this important work.”

Suffolk County Department of Health educator Robin Spencer recently offered pedestrian safety lessons to students in grades K-2 at Wing. The visit was a result of a New York State Highway Safety grant awarded to Wing by the department.

Spencer spoke with students in each Wing classroom, touching on topics such as crossing at the corner, wearing light colors at night and what to do when there is no sidewalk.

“These lessons gave the students an opportunity to have direct instruction about pedestrian safety and the potential hazards near roads,” said first-grade teacher Lisa Dieumegard. “We encourage the children to play outside, so we need them to be conscious of their surroundings and how to navigate the area around them. The lessons increased their awareness of the world around them.”

Following a week’s worth of autism awareness activities, blue-clad students at Wing celebrated on April 13 by holding puzzle pieces as they strolled on a supportive schoolwide autism walk around the grounds.

“Autism is something close to our hearts here at Wing, and it is important for us to embrace the themes of acceptance and appreciation,” said Principal Christopher Smalley.
