    Pep Rally Prelude to Lincoln Orens Sports Night

    Island Park’s Lincoln Orens Middle School held its annual afternoon pep rally on May 23 as a way to promote school spirit and build excitement for the evening’s Sports Night event. The gymnasium was packed with energy as seventh and eighth graders put teamwork on display for an audience of younger peers.

    Participants and audience members supported their respective teams, which represented the school colors of blue and gold through “the Incrediblues” and “the Goldest Showman” themes. Students presented dance choreography, music, athletic challenges and more while cheers rang out from the stands. They demonstrated their athletic and sportsmanship skills later on at Sports Night.

    The pep rally and Sports Night both emphasized the importance of teamwork, with eighth-graders serving as captains and role models. This pair of events is one of the many ways in which the district promotes teamwork, respect, positive leadership and sportsmanship throughout the school year.

    Lincoln Orens Welcomes Incoming Students

    Fourth graders from Island Park’s Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School were introduced to their future learning environment on June 5, during a new transition program. Lincoln Orens Middle School students helped welcome their younger peers, with eighth graders leading building tours and fifth graders answering questions in classroom visits.

    Future Kindergartners Get Warm Welcomes

    Island Park’s soon-to-be kindergarten students had the opportunity to visit Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and become acclimated to the building they will regularly attend starting September. On May 28, Pre-K classes took a field trip that introduced them to the school, staff members and other aspects of the upcoming year.

    Principal Jacob Russum welcomed the students as they exited the large school buses that transported them over to Hegarty from Lincoln Orens, where the Universal Pre-K program is housed. The classes then separated into different kindergarten classrooms where teachers led group conversations, discussed various topics about kindergarten and read books. The Pre-K children will “step up” in June, and are already off to an exciting start.

    Senior Citizen Brunch Shows Community Connection

    The Island Park Public Schools welcomed senior citizens from throughout the community for brunch at the Conference Center on May 10. The district hosts Senior Citizen Brunch events each school year, sponsored by the Island Park Recreation Department.

    Members of the Board of Education, administration and staff attended the event where Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino welcomed guests and provided district updates. Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School’s chorus of third- and fourth-graders, under the direction of music teacher Marie Sambolin, provided the entertainment. Students performed songs such as “Turn the World Around” and “The Power in Me.”

    In December, the district hosted a similar Senior Brunch at Lincoln Orens Middle School, which featured middle school musicians. These events provide a way to keep senior citizens in the community connected to the schools and apprised of the latest district news.

    College Fair

    Seventh- and eighth-graders at Island Park’s Lincoln Orens Middle School explored the opportunities that stand ahead during a college fair held on May 15. This event was part of College Awareness Week, which is one of the district’s many initiatives that promote college-readiness. 

    Representatives from Adelphi University, Johnson and Wales University, Molloy College, Nassau Community College, Utica College, SUNY Purchase, LIU Post, St. John’s University and Stony Brook University managed booths assembled in the cafeteria, where classes visited throughout the morning. Students had the opportunity to tour the stations, speak to the presenters and take brochures and other materials.

    Earlier this school year, the Naviance college and career readiness program was launched at Lincoln Orens to help connect student strengths and interests with goals. Fifth-graders took learning style inventories, sixth-graders utilized a career cluster finder to find occupations that fit their interests, seventh-graders completed a career key assessment dedicated to personality types and eighth-graders had a strengths explorer assessment that identifies career paths based on students’ areas of talent. All students have Student Progress Review meetings with Guidance Counselor Andrea Porzelt to help guide them in their paths to success.

    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.

  • Lincoln Orens Middle School eighth-graders graduate with big goals

    On the evening of June 20, Island Park’s eighth-graders showed that they were ready to take on their dreams and embark upon the challenges and opportunities of high school. Members of the district’s Board of Education, administration and staff, along with students’ families, gathered in the Steven L. Foster Auditorium for the 56th annual commencement ceremony, as the graduates took the spotlight on their middle school stage one last time.

    A slideshow of photo memories played as guests took their seats, and the event kicked off with the Graduation Orchestra’s performance of the traditional “Pomp and Circumstance” and a salute to the American flag. Lincoln Orens Middle School Principal Bruce Hoffman welcomed the students and audience members and introduced Outstanding Achievement Award recipients Elsy Guzman-Amaya, Robert Adler and Victoria Lugo, who discussed the Class of 2018’s past, present and future, respectively.

    The ceremony featured an awards presentation during which 25 eighth-graders were recognized by district and community organizations for their academic excellence, musical talent, athletic skill, school involvement, volunteer efforts and overall good character.

    Members of the chorus performed a “Count on Me” song medley, which signified this milestone as they head into different futures as individuals, with the support of one another.

    The highlight of the event was the much-anticipated presentation of diplomas by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino and Board of Education President Jack Vobis. Students were called up one-by-one to accept this token of their accomplishments.

    Immediately following this exciting moment, the Lincoln Orens Color Guard conducted the Transfer of Colors, at which time the graduates turned their flags and sashes over to their younger seventh-grade successors. The Color Guard Band provided accompanying music.

    As the event concluded, Dr. Bovino addressed the students and expanded upon the motivation that they already have within themselves. She discussed themes that Class of 2018 members unveiled in autobiographies that they completed in Gabriel D’Auria’s English language arts class, such as their families, friends, goals and strategies for achievement. She noted that they shared aspirations to become doctors, professional athletes, teachers, lawyers, architects, CEOs, mechanics, biochemists, singers, designers, personal trainers, bloggers and many other professions.

    “These are great long-term goals,” Dr. Bovino said. “I was impressed that you all said you were committed to doing your jobs well. The best result to look forward to is knowing that, someday, others will respect you for the work that you do.”
