Principal's Message

June 2014

Welcome Visitors,

Congratulations to all of our graduating students for a job well done and a summer well deserved. Good luck to our eighth graders as they once again have the opportunity to set new goals entering a new building. To our returning students, we look forward to your leadership and stewardship in the coming school year as we welcome our new sixth graders.

There have been a variety of letters sent home in regard to the final exam schedule. It important to take note of the dates and times your child will need to be in attendance. The bus times and stops also vary. If you need to look at the information again, you can find it on the middle school eBoard.

As we all know, technology is playing a greater role in education today. Islip Middle School has invested in a unique Internet based education tool called Castle Learning which will enable students to create their own review sessions or receive assigned sessions from teachers over the summer. Students can log onto Castle Learning to keep fresh on all subjects. During the month of July you will receive information about the program and instructions for its use. Students are encouraged to utilize this program to stay current during the summer months and return in September ready to embark on a new year of learning.

It would be remiss of me to not thank the IMS PTA for all of the support they provided to our students, your children. From assemblies to BBQ’s to fundraising, it has been a banner year.
Finally, there will be a good deal of work going on at the middle school. Walk-in visits will be limited to the latter part of August. We will inform parents when we are in a “visitor” ready environment. Please understand as we refurbish a few areas of our middle school.

Have a joyful and safe summer!

Timothy P. Martin
