From the high school and middle school to Connetquot, JFK, RCK and Timber Point elementary schools, East Islip students arrived back in classes on a warm Sept. 6, enjoying a terrific first day of school to start the educational year.

“Despite the incredible heat, the middle school students returned with great enthusiasm for the new school year,” said Principal William Brennen.

“JFK students enthusiastically started the new school year,” said Principal Deborah Smith. “Smiles and laughter once again filled the hallways as we welcomed our new third-graders as well as the returning fourth- and fifth-grade students. We look forward to all the wonderful learning that will take place this year.”

A resident of Setauket, he earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Stony Brook University, a master’s degree in elementary education from Dowling College and a master’s degree in administration from Stony Brook.

“I would like to continue to work with the teachers and community to improve upon the high educational goals and standards set for the children that I’ve had the privilege to work with for 23 years in East Islip,” said Bilotti.
