    Island Park Rings in Spring at April Board Meeting

    The Island Park Public Schools’ April 16 Board of Education Meeting featured student recognitions and important district information.

    The meeting began with the announcement of March Students of the Month from Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School. Jackson Flaherty (kindergarten), Ella Dudick (grade 1), Stefanie Laos (grade 2), Jason Morales (grade 3), Cassidee-Jade Clark (grade 4), Jagger Sgro (grade 5), Ariana Jara (grade 6), Celeste Consigli (grade 7) and Falon Duffy (grade 8) were congratulated for going above and beyond in their demonstration of positive character and achievement in the classroom. Kindergartner Tommy Matute, who was unable to attend the March meeting to receive his February Student of the Month acknowledgment, proudly accepted the award with the recent group. Principals Jacob Russum and Dr. Bruce Hoffman read teachers’ remarks about each honoree and distributed medals and certificates. 

    Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino and Assistant Superintendent Vincent Randazzo shared that the CTLE Professional Development Plan has been accepted by the New York State Education Department and the district is now an approved CTLE sponsor for 5 years, starting retroactively in 2016-17.

    The meeting also included a presentation on the proposed 2019-20 budget as the May 21 vote approaches. Island Park’s proposed tax increase is the fifth lowest in Nassau Ccounty out of 56 school district and the Board of Education and Administration have been diligent in their efforts to keep costs minimal. Participation in consortia, use of special audits and competitively bid contracts have been particularly cost effective for the district.  More information on the budget is available on the district’s website, www.ips.k12.ny.us.

If you would like to limit your child’s ability to purchase these items using funds from their account, please complete the form below and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher. We will do our best to assist with this.
