  • Students and STEM Shine at Island Park Board of Education Meeting

    The Island Park Public Schools’ Nov. 15 Board of Education Meeting began with Student of the Month recognitions, which were followed by several presentations and updates.

    Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School Principal Ms. Cynthia Cameron and Lincoln Orens Middle School Principal Dr. Bruce Hoffman commended Students of the Month who were selected for being ­­­­­­knowledgeable. Congratulations to Elizabeth Barnes (kindergarten), Mia Madramootoo (grade 1), Sofia Estupinan (grade 2), Javier Martin (grade 3), Josephine Sambade (grade 4), Francis Reyes (grade 5), Marisa Curtis (grade 6), Cameron Straub (grade 7) and Kayla Scott (grade 8).

    Superintendent of Schools Vincent Randazzo shared an update on events and noted that the district is excited to be bringing back many exciting opportunities that were previously impacted by the pandemic. In-person indoor concerts for both schools will be held in the Lincoln Orens Middle School auditorium, students will have opportunities to enjoy field trips and middle school athletics have returned and are off to a strong start. Mr. Randazzo also reviewed grading system policy changes and noted that any middle school student with a grade of 75 or lower will receive an interim progress report. He reviewed the NYSCOSS curriculum committee’s work to identify learning loss from the pandemic and announced that a survey will be sent out to parents.

    Two calendar changes were proposed on the agenda. The district will reschedule LOMS Awards Night to June 1 and the Grade 4 Parent Meeting to May 31. The Board approved an emergency replacement of a steam pipe at Lincoln Orens. Mr. Randazzo addressed a recent Newsday article that incorrectly reported information about Mt. Sinai South Nassau’s COVID-19 Vaccination Mobile. The district is not set to host the “Vaxmobile” – it will be stationed at Village Hall.

    Mr. Randazzo and Assistant Superintendent Dr. Alison Offerman-Celentano reported on STEM initiatives throughout the schools and described innovations in the classrooms such as robotics, technology education, science experiments, engineering design projects, coding applications and much more. These activities and many others are highlighted each day on the district’s Twitter feed, @ip_schools.

  • Volunteers Career Day

    Dear Parents:

    Career Day will soon be upon us. We are currently looking for volunteers to be presenters for Career Day, a school-wide program that includes grades K-4. In order to make this day a success, we are asking for your assistance. Volunteers are needed to present a variety of careers that can be shared with the children.

    The program will take place on Thursday, February 3, 2022. Based on the number of volunteers, there will be one or two sessions scheduled throughout the day. Each volunteer will be asked to visit 2-3 classrooms to discuss their career. The discussion will last 15 minutes, followed by a 5-minute question and answer period. If you feel your career is more appropriate for a particular age, please indicate below.

    Please complete the attached tear-off form indicating whether or not you are interested in participating in this special day and your choice of session. Please return this form by Monday, November 22, 2021.

    As always, thank you for your support.
