At the November 13 Island Park Board of Education meeting, several students were recognized as October Students of the Month.
The learner profile attribute for October was “knowledgeable,” which describes students who develop and use conceptual understanding, exploring knowledge across a range of disciplines. These students engage with issues and ideas that have local and global significance.
Students honored for this learner profile attribute were Jack Barnes (kindergarten), Parker Szachacz (grade 1), Everett Castell (grade 2), Catherine Rodahan (grade 3), Michal Skrine (grade 4), Sean Trahan (grade 5), Adan Rodriguez (grade 6), Andrew Ruiz (grade 7) and Ella Melle (grade 8).
Following student recognitions, Superintendent of Schools Vincent Randazzo reported important district updates to the Board and the general public. A highlight of Mr. Randazzo’s presenation was student goal setting also known as “Wildly Important Goals” (WIG). The presentation slides can be found on the Superintendent’s Corner page of the Island Park Union Free School District website following this URL: http://www.ips.k12.ny.us/superintendents_corner.
