Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Each moment and experience in your child’s life helps contribute to his or her growth and success.  In defining #SuccessatCRES it is our hope that your child will have many of these foundational experiences at Commack Road so that he or she will achieve his/her fullest potential socially, emotionally, and academically.  

The teaching and learning community expects all children to be leaders. It is our duty to work together to unlock each child’s passion and interests. CRES strives to create learning experience that help students understand what it takes to be a productive, participatory citizen at CRES, in Islip and beyond.  Our inspiration for this work comes from Stephen Covey’s Leader in Me and Sean Covey’s 7 Habits of Happy Kids. These texts guide us in the development of a common language and consistent expectations for your children.

In addition, our team of teachers are taking our Response to Intervention (RTI) efforts to the next level this year.  We are exploring different models of support services to provide the best, research-based practices that will provide all students with the tools to achieve their fullest potential.  We will be dedicating our time to develop our craft and expanding our horizons as educators. Our goal is to provide the most dynamic, engaging learning environment for all faculty, staff, parents and students.

The love and encouragement that I receive each day from every child’s smile, high five, fist bump, handshake, or birthday wish is the fuel that keeps me going each and every day.  The support and trust that is placed in all of us at Commack Road does not go unnoticed and means the world to all of us at Commack Road Elementary!

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at the many events each month.  I invite all stakeholders to let me know their thoughts about each experience at Commack Road.  Please feel free to send me an email, a note, or drop me a line to let me know how you feel things are going.   

To assist, in stakeholder feedback, I have created an online survey for all stakeholders to complete after they visit with us at Commack Road.  You can access the survey by clicking this link:  https://bit.ly/2PFGZBY or by scanning this QR Code with any smart phone.

Together, we can make Commack Road better every day!

The new school year began in Islip on Sept. 4, with students of all ages arriving at the district’s five schools to start the next phase in their educational careers.

“The building was buzzing with happiness and excitement from our students and staff on the first day of school,” middle school Principal Timothy Martin said. “If it is any indication of what is to come, this will be the best year ever.”

“The start of each school year is an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and to make new ones,” said Commack Road Principal James Cameron. “This year’s kickoff was certainly a success for all students, families and staff.”

“It is always great to see the students on the first day with their eager, happy faces,” said Sherwood Principal Chad Walerstein. “A new year represents new beginnings, and I am excited to see the learning journey the students will take this year.”
