Students from across the district got a great start on the year on Sept. 5 as the schools opened for the first day of learning.

“We were so thrilled to see such happy and excited students on day one of school,” said Robert Frost Middle School Principal Eliana Levey. “We’re looking forward to a phenomenal year.”

“Students arrived on the first day of school ready to learn,” said John F. Kennedy Intermediate School Principal Susan Bonner. “They were eager to enter the building and get started with the new school year. We are looking forward to many great times, adventures and learning experiences this year.”

“We are so happy to have the halls and classrooms filled with students again and are eager to begin another year full of engaging activities,” said John Quincy Adams Primary School Principal Christopher Molinelli.

“It was exciting to welcome our new pre-K and kindergarten students as well as our returning first- and second-graders,” said May Moore Primary School Principal Alicia M. Konecny. “Our teachers and support staff are eager to challenge our students to learn and accomplish great things – this is where we continue to develop the skills that build a strong foundation for learning.”

“I loved the first day of school because I have new teachers and I enjoyed writing and labeling our new supplies,” said May Moore first-grader Francesca Lathrop. “I think it’s going to be a great year.”  

 

 

 

 

 

The District Welcomes Three New Associate Principals

The district has welcomed three new assistant principals to the administrative team. Kristen Anisis and Sean O’Brien will work at Deer Park High School, and Heather Levine will serve at John Quincy Adams and May Moore primary schools.

Anisis previously worked as an English teacher at Freeport High School. The Long Beach resident earned her bachelor’s degree in English from Stony Brook University, a master’s degree in literacy at Queens College and a post-master’s certificate in educational leadership from Stony Brook.

“I am honored to join the administrative team at Deer Park Schools,” said Anisis. “I am excited to serve this wonderful community and will tirelessly work to reach our collective goal of student success.”

O’Brien most recently worked for three years as a school counselor at Elmont Memorial High School, and previously served as a guidance counselor at Roosevelt High School. A resident of Saint James, he earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology fron Stony Brook University, and his master’s degree in school counseling from Long Island University.

“ I look forward to working together with the amazing faculty and families of Deer Park High School as we prepare our students for the future,” he said.

Prior to joining the Deer Park administrative team, Levine worked for the Connetquot Central School District as a special education administrator. She has been in the field of education for over 14 years, and previously worked as special education teacher, chairperson and supervisor, as well as an instructional coach for the New York City Department of Education.  Levine earned her bachelor of science in human development and sociology from Binghamton University, her master’s degree in special education and general education from St. John’s University, and a gifted and talented advanced course of study from Touro College. She later obtained an advanced certificate in school building and school district leadership from the College of Saint Rose, and participated in the Teachers as Leaders program through Columbia Teacher’s College.

“Education is my passion,” said Levine, who resides in Levittown. “I am deeply committed to collaboration and support for all our students and believe in staying current with newest research-based trends in education. The early childhood years are critical times for students. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development, and we are the foundation that gives each student the opportunity to become a lifelong learner.”




Deer Park’s Day of Remembrance

Deer Park’s Day of Remembrance

With small but symbolic American flags in their hands, the young students at John F. Kennedy, John Quincy Adams and May Moore honored Patriot Day by planting the flags in front of each school in honor of all those lost on 9/11. The schools also read poems, played the national anthem and offered a moment of silence.

“Although our students were born long after the tragic events of September 11, 2001 happened, we honor Patriot Day as a day of remembrance by planting flags and wearing red, white and blue,” said May Moore Principal Alicia Konecny. “We teach our students that 9/11 changed our world. But with each story of sorrow and pain comes one of hope and courage. As we move forward, all of us have an opportunity to become better people and to learn valuable lessons about heroism, love and compassion.”
