Please join us for a wonderful self-esteem program:

For all parents and educators:

Raising a Beautiful Child seminar offers practical tools for improving your child's self-esteem and coping skills. It will be held on May 31st at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln Orens Middle School Auditorium (150 Trafalgar Blvd., Island Park). The event is free but registration is required:


For all female students:

Beautiful Me workshops offer instruction and hands on activities focusing on what makes each girl special - her strengths, talents, personality, and individuality. It’s an educational program that teaches that everyone is different, but still beautiful. The workshops allow girls to discuss who they are inside in groups of 8 to 12. Two workshops for grades 1-8 will run simultaneously with the parent seminar on May 31st.

PTA Meeting Minutes

PTA Message to Parents

Dear Parents:

We want to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year and invite you to join the Island Park Parent Teacher Association (PTA). In years past, we have had 100% participation from parents, faculty and staff of the Island Park School District and hope to accomplish the same this school year.

What does the PTA actually do? The PTA provides many exciting educational and cultural arts programs/assemblies for our children such as, the National Circus Project, Earth Day events, Philharmonic performance, Author visits and much more. The PTA also helps our school district by sponsoring many functions throughout the school year such as, Student of the Month, Summer Reading Program, PARP (Parents As Reading Partners) and refreshments at various ceremonies. Your involvement in the PTA is up to you. You can do as much as chairing or assisting a committee, helping out at functions or as little as just being a member and attending informative meetings.

Show your child education is important by becoming a member of the Island Park PTA. Please consider volunteering some of your time and ideas. Our PTA meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. at Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School (FXH) or at Lincoln Orens Middle School (LOMS) on dates listed in the school calendar and on the District website. Invest in your child's future by promoting quality education and a true partnership between home and school.

The cost for membership is $10.00 per member. We welcome grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, community members and merchants to join as well. Any additional contribution is greatly appreciated.

To become a member, please complete the attached envelope and return it with your membership fee to your child’s teacher or to one of our schools.

If you have any questions regarding membership, please contact our membership co-chairs, Adrianne Cardiello at (516) 459-9093 or Christine Glynn (516) 352-7504.

If you have any questions regarding the PTA or any of its committees and/or events, please call our PTA Co-Presidents, Jean Leo at (516) 655-6582 or TinaMarie Ruzicka at (516) 924-5739.
