Sept. 1 marked not only a new month, but the beginning of an exciting new school year for Islip’s students. At all five buildings – Islip High School, Islip Middle School, Commack Road Elementary School, Maud S. Sherwood Elementary School and Wing Elementary School – buses released smiling students who streamed into the halls, ready for the next step in their educations.

“Our first day at Islip High School exceeded expectations,” Principal Dr. Lara Gonzalez said. “It was a smooth opening – a testament to our wonderful students and staff. I am so grateful to be a part of this community as Islip continues its rise.”

“Islip Middle School is ready to bust out of the clouds of the pandemic and thrust into the sunshine of the future,” Principal Timothy Martin said. “We are all excited about the year ahead and the opportunities that await.”

“The first day at CRES was an amazing experience for all our students, families, staff and teachers,” Commack Road Principal James Cameron said. “We had plenty of excitement on the first day and ended with our annual welcoming parade for our youngest second-grade learners.”

“There was an overwhelming amount of positive energy at Sherwood’s opening day,” Principal Briana James said. “We are eager to welcome a new group of learners and can’t wait to kick off a year filled with new and exciting adventures. A new year of new opportunities has just begun.”

“It was a wonderful start to the new school year,” Wing Principal Catherine Glaser said. “There was such a great energy throughout the building. The children and staff were excited to be back together at Wing, and it was amazing to meet our youngest students as they joined us for the first time. I look forward to the wonderful experiences we have ahead of us this year as we build upon our students’ love of learning.”
