Principal's Message

June 2015

The end of the 2014-2015 school year is rapidly approaching and everyone is thinking ahead to the lazy days of summer.  This is the time of year we reflect back on our accomplishments and look ahead to the challenges to come.  Congratulations to all of our eighth grade students for a job well done and a summer well deserved.  Good luck to you as you once again have the opportunity to set new goals entering a new building.  To our returning students, we look forward to your leadership in the coming school year as we welcome our new sixth graders.
 
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.
   
At this time, you will have received information mailed home in regard to the final exam schedule.  Included are bus schedules that will be followed on those days.  It is important to take note of the dates and times your child will need to be in attendance.  The bus times and stops also vary.  The information can also be found on the middle school eBoard.
   
Finally, there continues to be a good deal of work going on in and around the middle school.  Visits will be limited to the latter part of August. Please call the main office 650-8500 at that time to schedule a visit.
 
Have a joyful and safe summer!   

Respectfully,

Timothy P. Martin, Principal
