    PTA SCHOOL STORE @ FXH

    We are happy to announce the

     PTA SCHOOL STORE @ FXH

     will be open on Tuesday, September 25th during lunch periods.

    The children will have the opportunity to purchase items such as fun pencils & pens, key chains, magnets, erasers, pencil sharpeners, coin purses etc. (prices range from 25¢ to $8.00).

    If you would like for your child to purchase item(s) from the School Store, please send money to school with your child in an envelope marked “School Store”.  Sorry but parents cannot shop with their children.

    The children really love browsing and buying things at the School Store.  Money that is earned from the sale of items in the School Store will go directly back to the children via special programs and activities provided for by the PTA.

    Volunteers are needed to work the School Store any time during lunch periods (11:20 am - 1:20 pm).  The days that the School Store will be open depends on the number of volunteers that are available to help.

    If you would like to volunteer at the School Store or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ralitsa Sundquist at raliny@gmail.com.

     TOGETHER WE ARE BETTER!!

    New School Year Membership Letter

    Island Park PTA

    Dear Families & Faculty:

    We hope you had a wonderful summer! The Island Park PTA Executive Board has been busy
    these past few weeks preparing for a new school year to be comprised of many educational and cultural art programs and assemblies for our students. In order to be able to provide our students with these programs we need paid members and volunteers.

    The cost for membership is $10.00 per member. Any additional contribution is greatly appreciated. Please complete the form below and return it with your membership fee to either FXH or LOMS. Remember, our goals are to maintain a strong and supportive PTA, and to promote parent involvement in the school, home and community. We ask both husbands and wives to join, along with students, teachers, grandparents and other community members. You don’t have to be a parent to belong
    to PTA!

    Remember, your involvement in the PTA is up to you. You can do as much as chairing or
    assisting a committee, helping out at functions or as little as just being a member and attending
    informative meetings. Show your children that education is important by becoming a member of the
    Island Park PTA. Invest in your student’s future by promoting quality education and a true partnership
    between home and school.

    If you have any questions regarding membership, please contact Jean Leo at (516) 655-6582 or
    email us at islandparkpta11558@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for supporting the Island Park PTA!

    Sincerely,
    PTA Executive Board

    Island Park Students Jump into Summer Learning

    Island Park students enjoyed a summer experience to remember, complete with arts and crafts, literacy activities, theater arts, athletics, computer opportunities and a Wii room. For five consecutive weeks in July and early August, students engaged in fun-filled days at Lincoln Orens Middle School through the collaboration of the Island Park Public Schools and the Recreation Department.

    A total of 323 students participated as either campers or counselors-in-training. The seventh- through 10th-grade CITs developed important leadership skills as they assisted counselors in providing a safe and enriching camp experience for pre-K children through sixth-graders.

    Theme days that involved silly socks, crazy hats and zany hair encouraged campers to get creative and express their own unique styles. The program also consisted of field trips to locations such as the library, New York Aquarium and Shell Creek Park that inspired learning through inquiry and exploration. Other destinations included Hot Skates, Adventureland, Bounce U and Rockville Centre Lanes bowling.

    Swim instruction was a critical aspect of the program, establishing water safety practices among children of this coastal community. Each age group visited Masone Beach once a week, during which swim safety and lessons were offered as well as activities, including kayaking.

    The program culminated with the highly-anticipated Spirit Week, for which students created banners and practiced cheers to support their teams. A Parent Night, held on Aug. 1, brought an outstanding show to the stage of Steven L. Foster Auditorium. Students presented “The Barnum Isle Circus” and performed an assortment of songs including “The Greatest Show,” “The Circus is Coming to Town,” “This is Me,” “The Man on the Flying Trapeze,” “Roar,” “Eye of the Tiger,” “Musica de Circo,” “I’ve Got the Magic in Me” and “Edge of Glory in Island Park,” with “Count on Me” as a finale.

    Facilities Summer Update – August 1, 2018

    LOMS:   Most of the roofing project will be completed in the next two weeks.  Renovation of canopies at Steven L Foster Auditorium, Audubon Blvd entrance, and at the back entrances of the gymnasium will continue into the beginning of school but will not interfere with school activities. 

    FXH:  Roofing project will be completed in the next two weeks.

    FXH: Substructure project for the Warwick Road side of the elementary school building is nearing completion.  Helical pilings (19-25 feet in length) were installed and all elements of the existing substructure were sandblasted and painted.  Structural steel will be installed between the pilings beginning next week.  This project complements a similar one completed in 1995 for the Deal Road side of the building.  Installation of new flooring will begin next week for select classrooms. The final stage of the substructure project under the Radcliffe Road section of the building will be completed next summer. 

    Air Quality Testing:  Air quality tests have been conducted as required by law with respect to asbestos abatement projects pertaining to the roofing work at LOMS and FXH.  At the end of the month our annual air quality testing will be conducted by Enviroscience in both school buildings. 

    FEMA Mitigation Project:  Thanks to assistance from Assemblywoman Kathleen Rice, our FEMA mitigation timeline for installation of the stackable flood gates and louvres has been extended.  Fabrication of the gates and louvres will begin after Labor Day.  We anticipate completion to occur at the end of February.
