Principal's Message

Welcome to Wing Elementary School! Wing Elementary School is the only primary school in the Islip School District. Islip education begins at Wing and over 340 students are welcomed in both kindergarten and first grade classes. The staff at Wing works tirelessly to ensure that the first educational experience of our youngest learners exists in a healthy, safe and supportive learning environment. Wing is dedicated to the District's Mission Statement: "The Islip Schools, in partnership with the community, will empower all students to achieve excellence." Our goal is to foster a learning environment where students feel appreciated, validated, respected and acknowledged. Wing welcomes all types of learners and the staff creates an environment conducive to each students' learning style. Students are given personal learning pathways that will allow them to acquire and retain the knowledge and skills to help them grow. Differentiating instruction creates these unique pathways that allow teachers to meet individual needs of students. This is done with the goal of engaging our students and helping them to develop a love of learning.

Healthy connections between the school and families gives students a greater opportunity to be successful. When schools and families work together, children do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more. Wing is committed to working with families to create learning experiences that are lasting and meaningful.

Michael Giacchetto, Ed.D.

“This honor is the result of hard work on the part of our music students and staff in conjunction with tremendous support from parents, school board members, administrators and the community at large,” said Brian Kroll, Islip’s director of fine and performing arts.

“What an accomplishment,” Superintendent Ellen Semel said. “It is a milestone to make the list, but to keep this going for seven years is outstanding.”
