Principal's Message

June 2022

Greetings Islip Families,

When I think about this past year, I could not be more pleased with how it progressed. Being able to attend so many events the children have worked so hard to be involved with was incredibly rewarding. The passion and joy the children shared was second to none, and well deserved. As we prepare for the summer, I encourage all of our Islip families to enjoy the great outdoors and experience all that our wonderful island has to offer.

Warm Regards,
Timothy P. Martin

Islip EXCEL Graduates Recognized at Eclosion Celebration

For the 11 Islip Middle School eighth graders in the district’s EXCEL gifted and talented program, June 15 marked the end of one era in their educational journey as they received certificates of completion at the program’s first Eclosion Celebration. Students Connor Ancipink, William Cheung, Kieran Freelin, Fiona Hamilton, Richie Lin, Nelysa Petersen, Wesley Plotke, Eve Schnatz, Aisha Shrivardhankar, Vincent Tyre and Jadyn Zink were officially recognized as program graduates in front of their proud parents during the event.

The informal celebration highlighted the endeavors, adventures and accolades the students have experienced since they began the program in fourth grade. EXCEL Coordinator Julia Johnson spoke about the varying disciplines studied in the EXCEL room, such as flying drones, writing poetry, debating philosophy, creating documentaries, and exploring global citizenship and neuroscience. 

“What’s awesome is that I got to watch the growth of your children throughout this,” Johnson told the parents. “I’ve watched them grow as writers, watched them engage in all these hands-on opportunities to figure out who they are as individuals, how they work with others, and slowly they are becoming themselves. We know that this is only the beginning, so tonight is our chance to honor them on that journey. It has truly been my honor to guide them through this experience of self-discovery, of self-creation, of emergence, and to witness them connect to the highest versions of themselves right now.”

Islip Eighth Graders Explore the Immigrant Experience

Islip Middle School’s eighth-grade class visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on May 25 as an extension of the school’s social studies curriculum. This trip allowed students to appreciate the immigrant experience more fully, as they explored the stories of those who migrated to our country and gained a deeper understanding of their reasons for making the journey to the United States to start a new life.

“Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are dual symbols of the freedom and hope that immigrants had when migrating to the United States,” said Dr. Robert Drysielski, the district’s social studies and business coordinator. “The museums give proof to the story of immigration and recognize the human spirit of our nation's ideals.”
