West Islip’s students began a new school year on Sept. 4, walking in to the district’s seven buildings with anticipation.

“We are looking forward to a positive year filled with laughter, joy and tons of learning experiences for our elementary students,” said Bellew Principal Rhonda Pratt. “I offer a special welcome our pre-K students as they join our PJB family.”

“What an amazing first week of school at Beach Street,” said Principal Andrew O’Farrell. “Our students were definitely ready to start the year and set to go. It was terrific to see all of our sixth, seventh and eighth graders moving to their classes with such enthusiasm. The energy they brought to school was so uplifting.”

A total of 191 student-musicians from Beach Street and Udall attended the Long Island Music Festival at Suffolk Community College’s Van Nostrand Theater, chaperoned by parent and teacher volunteers. The West Islip groups – Beach Street’s and Udall’s seventh and eighth grade bands and orchestras, and Udall’s vocal ensemble – took home three Superior rating trophies and one Excellent rating trophy.

During the LIMF event, each performing ensemble had the opportunity to be rated by a panel of expert adjudicators. Each adjudicator provided a set of constructive comments, a clinic working on their performance music and a group rating. The day concluded with a visit to the Splish Splash water park in Calverton.

“This event was a musical and educational experience for all of the students who participated,” said Lynnette Fawess, the middle school orchestra director. “We are all extremely proud of the students’ hard work.”
