    UPK will be celebrating Character Day

    October 19, 2018

    Dear Parents:

    On Wednesday, 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!

    Island Park students zone in on safety

    Safety is a priority in the Island Park Public Schools, and recent programs presented opportunities for students to brush up on important practices and rules that support overall wellness. Students at Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Pre-K students at Lincoln Orens Middle School attended fire safety sessions, and both schools held internet safety presentations.

    Members of the Island Park Fire Department visited the Pre-K and elementary classes on Oct. 5, when they discussed what to do in case of emergencies. They explained the functions of fire detection alarms and other safety devices, and reviewed when to call 911. Children then toured the fire trucks and explored how the firefighters act fast to help stop disasters and save lives.

    Internet safety assemblies were held at Lincoln Orens on Oct. 4 and 5, and those at Hegarty took place on Oct. 11 and 12. School social workers and administrators focused on measures that students should take to protect themselves online. They covered anti-bullying strategies and responsible internet use, with age-appropriate lessons for each grade level.

    Earlier this school year, Hegarty held its annual bus safety drill during the first week of school to serve as a reminder for bus rules. Drivers and staff members emphasized the importance of wearing seatbelts and remaining seated on the bus, and also led practices in emergency exits.

    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.”
