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.

    Students Share the Spirit of Giving

    Student Council organizations at both Lincoln Orens Middle School and Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School held food drives prior to Thanksgiving, in order to provide donations to local families in need. They collected non-perishable goods that were distributed just in time for the holiday. The Student Councils are now gathering holiday gifts through toy drives that will run through Dec. 14.

    Island Park Board of Education Meeting Honors Outstanding Students

    The Island Park Public Schools’ Nov. 26 Board of Education Meeting featured Student of the Month recognitions in addition to a report on the updates to the guidance programs that meet new state regulations and incorporate social emotional learning.  

    Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School principals Jacob Russum and Dr. Bruce Hoffman announced the respective Students of the Month from each grade. Cooper Gottlieb (kindergarten), Luke Testerman (grade 1), Leeya Ravener (grade 2), Isael Jaramillo (grade 3), Emanuel Navarrete (grade 4), David Habib-Roldan (grade 5), Juliana Michaelson (grade 6), Emmalee Egan (grade 7) and Mia DeBellis (grade 8) received medals and certificates of excellence, and the principals read remarks from teachers that described the ways these students demonstrate positive characteristics and serve as role models.

    Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino shared that the district is doing more to help students relieve anxiety, create an environment that is less stressful for them.

    “Keeping kids connected to each other in positive ways is one of the key factors in creating a healthy school environment,” she said.

    Dr. Bovino introduced Guidance Counselor Andrea Porzelt, who discussed the phase-in of revisions to the guidance program that will promote academic success while helping students feel safe and comfortable within school buildings. She reviewed current and new state regulations and noted the biggest change, which is that K-5 students will have information on college and careers through core curriculum created by school counsellors. Another new development is that students in kindergarten through grade 4 will now have access to a school guidance counselor on a part-time basis.

    Also at this meeting, Dr. Bovino acknowledged Island Park alumnus Darren Foster, a successful filmmaker. Foster co-directed the film “Science Fair” for National Geographic, which received the DuPont and Peabody Awards for documentary journalism and filmmaking, the Sundance Film Festival’s Audience Award and the South by Southwest Film Festival’s Best New Feature Film Documentary Award. Most recently, he and his co-director won a Critics’ Choice Award as Best First-Time Directors. He made a special visit to Lincoln Orens on Nov. 21, when he shared his experiences with students, who then viewed the film.

    Students received “Be the Change You Wish to See – Live Drug Free” pencils to kick off the Red Ribbon initiatives and heard announcements that emphasized key messages throughout the week. They signed a pledge stating their promise to avoid drugs wore clothing that supported the theme – superhero shirts represented saying “kapow” to drugs, tie-dye clothing conveyed “peace out” to drugs and clothing with inspiring statements and words spread positive messages.

    On Oct. 26, Lincoln Orens Middle School students and staff dressed in red and convened on the blacktop to form a giant red ribbon as their annual Red Ribbon Week tradition.

    Stranger Danger

    Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff:

    Please be aware that the school district has received information that on Thursday, October 25 at approximately 8:15 AM, a male middle school student reported that a white car pulled over near the bus stop at Island Parkway West and offered the student a ride. After the student refused, the car reportedly drove off.  The event was reported to the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) and is currently under review by the authorities.

    It is important for parents to remind their children about basic safety rules to follow when and if they are confronted by a stranger.  Students should be reminded to avoid going near or entering any vehicles not known to them, and to report such instances immediately to a responsible adult. If your children make you aware of any incidents similar to the one above, please call your child’s Principal and the Police and inform them as soon as possible.  Parents are encouraged to arrange for children to walk together, if they cannot accompany and stay with their child until the bus arrives.  

    Thank you

    Mr. Randazzo
    Assistant Superintendent

    Gym Clothing

    Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s) of Students in Grades 6, 7, and 8:

    Beginning in grade 6, our students are expected to change into “gym clothing” for their Physical Education classes. This requirement addresses issues related to basic hygiene. These concerns have indicated the need for specific attire to be worn during physical activities when young adults are prone to perspire. Therefore, students will be expected to wear navy blue mesh shorts (7” seam) and a grey short-sleeved cotton tee shirt during Physical Education classes.

  • 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.”
