Welcome to Islip Middle School

Islip NY 11751
In the blink of an eye, we’ve gone from “Welcome Back” to Happy Holidays! The joy of the season is upon us and in full swing at IMS.
We left November with letter writing to veterans thanking them for their service and also collecting a tremendous amount of food for our local food pantry. It is bitter sweet knowing there are so many people in our community with great financial needs. It is reassuring to know that our community comes together to help those less fortunate at this time of year.
You may have heard the buzz around town, Islip TV is back in full swing. Mr. Modica and Mr. Ackermann are training a crew of new commentators and technicians. Log on to our middle school eBoard to see the most recent production. Keep in mind, the students are becoming familiar with the studio and they will only improve as they practice their skills.
Before we know it, the new year will arrive. It is a great time to reflect on the year gone by. If there were one thing we could do over, what would it be? Likewise, if there were one thing not to repeat, what would it be? This is a great conversation to have with the children so they can begin to set goals for the year ahead.
From all of us in the Islip Learning Community, you are wished a happy, health and safe holiday season.
Timothy P. Martin
