Message From Our Principal

 August 2023

 Dear Hicksville Middle School Families: 

 It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new principal of Hicksville Middle School. I am humbled by this opportunity to serve our school community in a different capacity from that of the past five years as an assistant principal.

 As we gear up for the upcoming school year, I wanted to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to all of our new and returning families. Together, we form a close-knit community where learning, growth, and support are at the heart of everything we do. At Hicksville Middle School, we embrace the motto: "Heart + Motivation = Success." We firmly believe that success is achieved when we approach our endeavors with passion, determination, and care for one another.

 You will find me in the hallways, classrooms, and cafeterias getting to know your children and working to build strong relationships with them. I believe that my job is to ensure that the academic, social, and emotional needs of all students are met, while creating an environment where all are treated with respect, kindness, and understanding. 

 Academically, we will continue to offer a comprehensive curriculum that challenges and inspires our students. We will strive for excellence and provide the necessary support to help each student achieve their full potential. Additionally, I am dedicated to cultivating an environment that encourages critical thinking, creativity, and a love for learning.  Socially, we will work to create a positive and respectful atmosphere where kindness and empathy prevail. We will promote a sense of belonging and celebrate the unique qualities that make our school community so special. At Hicksville Middle School, we believe in treating one another with respect, kindness, and understanding, ensuring that everyone feels welcome and valued. Fostering a culture of care is of great importance to us all.  Emotionally, I am committed to ensuring that our students' well-being is at the forefront of our efforts. I believe that a nurturing and supportive school environment is crucial for their overall development and success. Our staff is trained and ready to address the emotional needs of our students, providing guidance and resources as necessary.

 I am truly excited about the new chapter that lies ahead for all of us. Together, we will continue to build upon the strong foundation that makes Hicksville Middle School an exceptional place of learning and personal development. We will embrace innovation, encourage curiosity, and empower our students to become active and engaged learners.

 As the principal, I am here to support and guide each student on their educational journey. My door is always open to hear your thoughts, concerns, and aspirations. Together, we will work to ensure a rewarding and enriching school experience for every student.  Please feel free to call me at 516-733-2261 or email me at [email protected]. I look forward to our partnership and an exciting school year!
