    Pre-Kindergarten Parent/Teacher Conferences

    Dear Pre-Kindergarten Parents:                                                                                                  

    Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held at the Lincoln Orens Middle School on Thursday, November 14, 2019 in your child’s classroom.  Conferences should allow for you and your child’s teacher to discuss specific aspects about your child’s progress in school.  Parents must access and print out their child’s report card using the online parent portal on the Island Park School’s website:  http://www.ips.k12.ny.us.  If you cannot access the portal, please call the office for assistance.

    On Thursday, November 14, 2019, there will be a full day of school followed by conferences in the afternoon and evening.  Students will be dismissed at their normal time.  Your child’s teacher will be present during the following times.

    Thursday, November 14, 2019 

                          3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

                                      and 

                            6:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m. 

    Please remember that meeting times will be approximately 10 minutes.   Here are some time-saving tips: 

    • Make a list of any questions or concerns you may have so they may be addressed.
    • If you are able to attend the afternoon conference, please do so. This may alleviate crowds at both sessions.
    • Have a copy of your child’s report card printed from the online portal.

    If you feel that you need more time to see your child’s teacher, please call the school and make an appointment:

    Parents are asked to indicate on the attached sheet if you will be attending the afternoon conference or the evening conference as well as your approximate arrival time.  We look forward to meeting with you and appreciate your continuing cooperation.  If you have any questions, please call the main office at Hegarty School at 516-434-2670. 

    Sincerely,

    Cynthia Cameron
    Principal

    UPK Character Day

    Dear Parents:

    On Thursday, October 31st, the UPK will be celebrating Character Day.   Students may have the option to wear costumes representing their favorite literary character.  For safety reasons, students are not permitted to wear masks, face paint, or capes.  Also, students should wear costumes that do not restrict or limit them from normal classroom activity.

    In addition, classroom activities are scheduled to take place.  “Goodie bags” are not permitted due to the need to check all contents for each bag.  However, “activity bags” may provide a positive alternative in place of bags containing food, as long as the items are labeled suitable for students of the given age.  Parents must communicate with the classroom teacher regarding any and all items brought in.

    We look forward to an engaging and creative day for all involved!

    Sincerely,

    Cynthia Cameron
    Principal

    Each year our school Site-Based Committee has transitions due to expiration of terms.  During the 2019-2020 school year, both the Lincoln Orens Middle School and Francis X.

    The school district plan outlines the process for selection of members.  Parents interested in becoming members of the Site-Based Committee must complete the attached interest form.  We will then have a drawing for members at a PTA meeting on October 10, 2019. 

    If you wish to participate in the process, please complete the form and return it to the Office of the Superintendent.

    Marc Mero Inspires at LOMS

    Seventh and eighth grade students at Island Park’s Lincoln Orens Middle School received real-life lessons on the importance of positive choices from guest speaker Marc Mero. The former WWE wrestler and author provided a moving presentation on Sept. 18, focusing on the impact of one’s decisions throughout life.

    Mero founded the Champion of Choices nonprofit organization, through which he shares his story with people around the world as a way to encourage good character and positive behavior. He discussed the power that each person holds in overcoming adversity, appreciating relationships, achieving success and making a difference to others. He shared his own experiences, regrets and revelations, with emotional narratives that underscored the value of family relationships.

    In addition to telling his own story, Mero shared that of Victoria Siegel, who passed away from drug abuse at the age of 18 and left a diary behind to help prevent this from happening to others. Victoria urged others to talk to someone if they need help, and Mero further stressed this point.

    “We can make a difference together,” Mero said. “Each and every one of us is responsible for making a difference – the way you treat each other, the way you talk to each other, whether we’re respectful to our parents – we’re going to make a difference.”

    A Bright School Year Begins in Island Park

    The 2019-20 school year is off to a great start at Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School. Learning is under way in the classrooms and students have been getting to know new peers and teachers. Additionally, this year brings several exciting new initiatives that support the academic program.

    At Lincoln Orens the Teacher’s College Writer’s Workshop program through Columbia University has been launched while Hegarty has jumpstarted its new Fountas and Pinnell English Language Arts curriculum. Both are expected to strengthen reading and overall literacy skills. The district will also continue to expand its new science programs that were introduced last year.  

    Additionally, Hegarty students are enjoying a new sensory hallway that strengthens coordination and fine motor skills while providing movement-centered “brain breaks” throughout the day. A new tower garden, which features hydroponic planting, was also installed in the building and will be used in conjunction with the science curriculum.

    Information Related to Our Extracurricular Programs

    Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

    Attached you will find information related to our Extracurricular Programs.   This includes all clubs, morning and after-school activities (with the exception of athletics).

    Every student is required to submit a registration form indicating the club(s) and/or activities that he/she plans to participate in.   To assist you with this process, we have included a summary sheet that shows which clubs and/or programs meet on the given days of the week.   Remember that these programs require a commitment from your child and we ask that you do not over extend your son/daughter.   However, Middle School is a time when students determine their likes and dislikes and we encourage each student to try a new club or sport.

    Please take some time to review the available programs with your child and to complete the Registration Form.   Students should return the signed forms to their Period “A” teacher.   Clubs will begin meeting during the week of September 23rd.    Club advisors will provide participants with a schedule of meeting dates at their first group meeting.   Early morning transportation will be available (see enclosed schedule).   There is also a 4:30 pm and 5:00 pm bus for club participants.

    Please note:   Every child who attends a club must have a signed registration/permission slip on file.   Students will not be admitted as “walk-ins.”

    If your child will be unable to attend a club, please notify the club/activity facilitator via school telephone or note since attendance is taken.  If you are picking up your child after a club or activity, please come to the school promptly at the dismissal time.  District policy requires that clubs will only run if enrollment is maintained at ten or more students.   If enrollment drops below this number for three consecutive club meetings, the club will be cancelled.    If a club/program is cancelled, you will be notified.

    Thank you for your support.   If you have any questions, problems or concerns, related to a club or activity, please do not hesitate to call the school at:  434-2630.

    Sincerely,

    Bruce Hoffman, Ed.D.
    Principal

    A Word from the Superintendent …

    The Island Park School District grieves with its neighboring school communities for the tragic loss of life suffered this week. Given the series of events that took place, we will continue to work with our students so that they may continue to grow in their understanding of what it means to look after each other and how important it is to be a responsible upstander rather than a passive bystander. The Long Beach School District is working with school staff and the police to ensure our students’ safety; it encourages our community members to visit their website for related information. Island Park students attending Long Beach High School are reminded that counselors are available to provide support.
