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.

Third Wing Walk Connects Grads With Their Roots

Third Wing Walk Connects Grads With Their Roots

The high school’s most recent graduates had a chance to connect with their roots on June 19, participating in the third annual visit to Wing for a walk through the halls in their caps and gowns. Led by the Buccaneers mascot, the seniors paraded out to the playground, where they greeted the Wing kindergartners and first-graders.

“This was our biggest turnout yet,” said Islip High School Principal Michael Mosca, who developed the walk with Wing Principal Christopher Smalley. “The seniors were thrilled to have the opportunity to visit their former teachers and give out high-fives to the younger students. This has become a wonderful tradition that benefits both Wing and high school students. It allows our seniors to reflect on their entire educational journey and it gives our Wing students a glimpse into their future as Islip students.”

Book Clubs at Elementary Schools

All of Islip's elementary schools offered afterschool book clubs for students this year. These clubs were funded through the district’s Title I grant. Pictured here are Commack Road's second-graders enjoying their final session.

Dashing to Defeat Disease: Wing Takes on NF 3

Bringing awareness to neurofibromatosis, often abbreviated as NF, students at Wing learned about the disease during the month of May and collected coins to help fund Children’s Tumor Foundation conduct research to find a cure. At library time, the students read a book about an Islip student with NF and received coloring books with facts about the disease. Each week in May, students shared facts about NF during morning announcements. To culminate NF Awareness Month, Wing’s students ran a “Hero Dash,” complete with capes and a visit from Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi.

“Wing students are everyday heroes,” said teacher Lisa Dieumegard.
