  • Island Park Public Schools and community have come together to bring holiday joy

    Kind hearts and thoughtful minds in the Island Park Public Schools and community have come together to bring holiday joy to those less fortunate. Through donation drives facilitated by Student Council and staff members from both Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School, numerous families will receive gifts that are on their wish lists. The drives were collaborative efforts, as students, parents, staff members and local businesses contributed items that they anticipate will provide both necessities and holiday joy to others. The Student Council members and teachers collected, wrapped and sorted donations of new toys.

  • Island Park’s Dec. 19 Board of Ed. Meeting Includes Recognitions and Updates

    The Island Park Public Schools’ Dec. 19 Board of Education Meeting featured student recognitions, district presentations and discussions. The evening began with acknowledgment of eight outstanding students who demonstrate a number of positive qualities.

    Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School Principal Jacob Russum and Lincoln Orens Middle School Principal Vincent Randazzo presented certificates and medals to Student of the Month award recipients, who represent each grade from K-8. They called each student up individually and read words of praise submitted by teachers. Gifts were provided courtesy of the PTA.

    The students of the month are Alex Michaels (kindergarten), Kayla Fonseca (grade 1), Matilda Zarcone (grade 2), Ava Acovino (grade 3), Coby Spiteri (grade 4), Emily Feil (grade 5), Dylan Cantwell (grade 6), Adam Santa Maria (grade 7) and Benjamin Upbin (grade 8). Congratulations additionally went to kindergartener Luca Ragan, who was unable to attend the October meeting at the time when his Student of the Month distinction was first announced, as he proudly accepted his prizes.

    Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino then led a presentation about the bond proposal that will be presented to the community in a Jan. 24 vote. She shared a fact sheet that is available on the district’s website,, along with all other information about the bond referendum. The superintendent encouraged every community member who plans to vote to also give blood since Jan. 24 is also the day of the district’s blood drive in coordination with the grade 5 Little Doctors’ Program.  Every donation can save up to three lives. Donations are very much needed during the winter months when Long Island blood banks are low.

    Dr. Bovino also noted several dates to remember. A community forum will be held on Jan. 9 in the Conference Center, located at 99 Radcliffe Road, at 7:30 p.m. A tour of Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School (100 Radcliffe Road), will be offered on Jan. 10, while one of Lincoln Orens Middle School (150 Trafalgar Boulevard) is slated for Jan. 12. Both dates will feature tours at 6 p.m. for residents and 7 p.m. for parents. The Hegarty Tour for parents includes a Recreation Department Game Night. Parents may drop their children off at the John P Gould Gymnasium (where games and activities are scheduled), take their tour, and then rejoin their children to enjoy games together.  Similarly, the Lincoln Orens Tour for parents includes a Science Fair.  All parents may take a tour before or after their visit to the Science Fair.

    Also at this meeting, the Board approved a Cold War Veterans Tax Exemption, which enables veterans who rendered military service to the United States between Sept. 2, 1945 and Dec. 26, 1991 to receive a property tax exemption in the amount of 15% from school taxes.

  • Senior brunch brings community members and schools together

    The Island Park Public Schools hosted a Senior Brunch on Dec. 9, when district officials and staff members welcomed senior citizens from the community to join them for breakfast and good company. The event was sponsored by the Island Park Recreation Department under the direction of Recreation Supervisor Keith Manginelli. 

    Two Senior Brunch gatherings are held each school year. The recent celebration took place at Lincoln Orens Middle School, where attendees were seated in the cafeteria. After the group enjoyed their meal and had a chance to mingle, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino welcomed attendees and expressed gratitude to all who helped make the day possible.

    Dr. Bovino introduced the administrators and board of education members and shared the latest news about the schools. She discussed the district’s diligence in securing grants to fund the Universal Pre-K program and technology initiatives, as well as full FEMA reimbursements from Superstorm Sandy mitigation projects. Dr. Bovino also provided information about the Jan. 24 bond referendum vote and shared a video overview, which can be accessed via the district’s website, located at

    The main highlight of the brunch was a performance that featured chorus and band students. The middle school musicians were excited to present many songs that they had shared at the previous evening’s winter concert. The results of their talents and hours of practice time were met with smiles and applause.
