Welcome to Wing Elementary
Islip, NY 11751
Welcome to Wing Elementary School! As the only primary school in the district, we provide the first public educational experience for the 400+ kindergarten and first graders in our school. Our staff is committed to ensuring that students and their families feel safe, secure and nurtured as they begin their educational journey.
We are dedicated to the Islip School District’s Mission Statement: “The Islip Schools, in partnership with the community, will empower all students to achieve excellence.” Our goal is for each student to master the skills needed to be a lifelong learner and to understand the joy and power of learning. All of our teachers are aware of and have been trained in the NYS Common Core Standards. English language arts skills are the cornerstone of education at K-1. All activities are connected to these communication tools, and we are proud to have been awarded the Suffolk County Reading Association’s Honor School banner every year since we opened in 1992!
Our academic programs and materials in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Technology, Physical Education, and the Arts are aligned with state standards and guidelines. Our state of the art library and computer lab will further students’ opportunities for growth and joyful learning.
Our recycling efforts resulted in Wing being awarded a Proclamation from the Suffolk County Legislature. Our efforts have also been recognized by the American Heart Association. Wing Elementary School also takes great pride in having been named a National PTA School of Excellence for Parent Involvement, based on a rigorous list of standards. We continue to be committed to our partnership with parents for we know that is an essential ingredient for student success.
We are pleased to be able to offer a full day kindergarten program to Islip students, as research shows it is of great benefit to our youngest learners. Our own studies, conducted since we began full day kindergarten in September 2002, show an increase in all English Language Arts area skills: listening speaking, reading, and writing. This growth continues and is magnified in first grade learning. As we embark on to the new school year we look forward to continuing the many programs that have been successful in the past and integrating current research based instructional strategies and lessons.
