Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Loving Caregivers,

It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I write this letter welcoming you back to the start of a new school year! I am honored to be the principal of Wing Elementary School and look forward to working together to advance the achievement of all students. During my time as an educator, I have had the opportunity to serve various communities as a teacher assistant, special education teacher, founding member of a new school, and assistant principal. Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly rigorous and enriching school experience.

The elementary years are critical times for children. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development. My goal as principal is to provide leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is safe, encouraging, and fun for your child to receive the best possible instruction and encourage them to become lifelong learners. 

I believe that all children can and will learn to their greatest potential in a positive, nurturing environment. I think it is essential to encourage our students to understand their mistakes and obstacles are a part of life, but how students persevere, learn, and grow from these difficulties will encourage them to develop into successful adults and lifelong learners. I look forward to spending time this year getting to know and learn from staff, students, and families at Wing.

I believe in the importance of two-way communication and encourage you to reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas throughout the year as my door is always open to the school community. If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.


Catherine Glaser, Proud Principal

Kindergarten and first grade students at Wing Elementary School gathered on the school’s playground on Sept. 21 to celebrate the annual worldwide Pinwheels for Peace project, which coincides with the International Day of Peace. Continuing a tradition that began in 2005, Wing’s students participated by imagining “whirled” peace through creating and decorating their own pinwheels.

“With each colorful and unique pinwheel, we talked about being peaceful, kind and showing respect for others and ourselves,” school social worker Allison Rutsky said. “We practice problem solving in peaceful ways.”

Islip celebrated homecoming on Sept. 24 with an action-packed day of community pride and engaging activities, blessed by sunshine and crisp weather. Led by fire trucks, members of the Board of Education, district and school administrators, and Islip High School alumni, the parade began at Town Hall at noon. Each of the district’s schools joyfully marched with banners waving, while high schoolers presented grade-level floats making creative use of pop culture, from Marvel and pirates to “Stranger Things” and “Toy Story.”

Islip’s younger students then enjoyed a fabulous carnival on the soccer field, replete with games of skill and inflatable slides, before the varsity football team kicked off its big game against Half Hollow Hills West. At halftime, Homecoming King Connor Autera and Homecoming Queen Olivia Gardner were announced to the cheers of the Homecoming Court and the “Bleacher Creature” students in the stands, followed by exceptional performances by the school’s cheerleaders, kickline, marching band and color guard. Although the Bucs sadly did not prevail in their contest, it was nonetheless a marvelous day to remember for the Islip community.

“Islip High School’s homecoming was sensational,” Principal Dr. Lara Gonzalez said. “The large number of students of all ages and community members who turned out to watch the parade down Main Street, participate in the homecoming carnival and root for our Buccaneers during the football game was a testament to the pride Islip takes in its school system. I am so impressed by the level of school spirit and support for our high school.”
