A Message from the Principal:

Islip High School Community,

We have finally completed the development and review of the Spring Semester Cohort Calendar beginning on Monday, January 4, 2021, which you will find linked in the sidebar of this page. This calendar reflects the complete schedule for the Gold and Purple Cohorts while identifying the Day 1/Day 2 Schedule. The calendar also reflects holidays, scheduled snow days, and our June testing period, which is still to be determined. As decisions regarding NYS Regents Examinations are made by the NYS Education Department, we will update our June testing to reflect these changes.

Thank you and please feel free to call my office or the IHS Guidance Department at the numbers listed above if you have any questions.

 
Sincerely,

Jon LaRochester - Principal

HS Woodshop Students Get Creative With Bandsaw Boxes

HS Woodshop Students Get Creative With Bandsaw Boxes thumbnail182840

High school students in Jesse Eilbeck’s woodshop class recently researched the topic of bandsaw boxes, then created individual designs.

Senior Carly Daccueli chose a teddy bear box design, junior Jack Lepore chose a wave, senior Thomas Mai chose an owl, senior Shane Mulvey chose a semicircle, senior Tommy O’Shea chose a representation of Long Island, junior Jonny Stumpf chose a wolf and sophomore Tyler Vetrano chose an infinity sign.

The students next drew templates of their designs and worked out where the drawers or openings would be. Some featured drawers, others had lids. Each student then considered which material to use, including pine, walnut, cherry and even purpleheart wood, and laminated a set of boards for building the design. A cutting plan was thought out and implemented with the bandsaw, followed by sanding the box and making it ready for finish.
