  • Fun Pasta

    Dear Parents and Friends:

    Great News! Our Island Park PTA is fundraising with Fun Pasta Fundraising! We are raising money for student activities
    and enrichment and we need your help in reaching our fundraising goal! We’ll earn a 40% profit from every sale. Selling is
    fun and simple – especially with the new Fun Pasta App! This fundraiser starts today and ends on February 11, 2022.

    What is Fun Pasta? Fun Pasta is healthy and fun pasta shaped like the holidays, sports, collegiate team logos, and more.
    The colorful brochure shows a wide variety of products that will appeal to everyone!

    How can you help? Join our Fundraiser!

    1. Download the Fun Pasta Fundraising App from the Apple or Google stores.

    2. Log in with the primary email address of the seller (you can only use one email per seller name), and input our join code: JIYNP9.

    3. On the app, customize your Seller’s Page by uploading a picture and editing the copy. You can even upload a video!

    4. From the app, use the share icon and send texts or emails to all your out-of-town family and friends and ask them to support you. We have pre-written messages that are easy to share. You can also post your fundraiser on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    5. From your computer, if you’d like to just share a shopping link in an email or Facebook, please copy and paste our group link: https://www.funpastafundraising.com/shop/island-park-pta

    There is FREE SHIPPING on orders over $55! So please share the fundraiser and help support our fundraising efforts.

    Anything else you need to know? Your seller can take “brochure orders” from the app. This is the more traditional way of selling where the seller delivers the product “in person” after the fundraiser closes. No cash or checks collected.

    All sales are placed on credit cards.

    Sharing the fundraiser from the app is simple and easy! Sellers can text, email, or share on social media –
    all orders are placed online and delivered directly to the customer’s homes.

  • Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Registration

    Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members:

    This letter serves as an announcement regarding the Island Park Schools’ Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) registration for the anticipated 2022-23 school year. We are hopeful that the NYS Legislature and the NYS Education Department will continue to support our UPK program. While there is no guarantee this will happen or that we will receive the same level of funding that will permit us to accept all eligible children, we are optimistic and planning accordingly.

    Due to the visitor restrictions this year, we are not making in-person appointments to register. You can begin to view all the registration materials as early as January 6, 2022 in one of three ways:

    1) Visit our district website: www.ips.k12.ny.us and register online. You can find the page with all the registration information and a link to the online system, FamilyID, by clicking on the District Information tab and then the Student Registration tab. We will open FamilyID for registration on February 8, 2022, and it will close on February 10, 2022.

    2) You can download and print the entire registration packet from our district website by visiting the Student Registration page as detailed above. There will be three days for submission of the completed UPK registration packet at the Francis X. Hegarty School on February 8, February 9, and February 10, 2022.

    3) You can pick up a registration packet at Francis X Hegarty Elementary School between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM.
    There will be three days for submission of the completed UPK registration packet at the Francis X. Hegarty School on February 8, February 9, and February 10, 2022.

    You will have to include the following with your packet, whether you are registering online or by submitting a paper packet:

    • A copy of your child’s Birth Certificate confirming your child will be four years of age on or before December 1, 2022.

    • 3 Proofs of Residency confirming you live in Island Park (driver’s license, telephone bill, deed to home, bank statement, etc.).

    • Updated immunizations and a current physical from your child’s pediatrician.

    Kindly note, registration does not guarantee enrollment. However, if you do not register your child by February 10, 2022, you increase your child’s chances that he/she may be subject to a lottery or may not be admitted at all. If you have any questions, please call Francis X. Hegarty School (516-434-2670/71). There will be an informational meeting about the UPK program on Wednesday, April 13, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. in person with the option to watch a livestream via YouTube. Thank you for your attention to this matter and your continued support of the Island Park Schools.

    Sincerely,
    Cynthia Cameron
    Principal
