Our mission is to inspire all students to be confident, passionate learners with the courage and skills to lead their lives with integrity, while contributing to our global community with creativity and compassion

 

Dear Martin Avenue Families,

It is a pleasure and honor to welcome you to Martin Avenue School. At Martin Avenue, and throughout the North Bellmore School District, we live our mission statement as we ‘inspire all students to be confident, passionate learners with the courage and skills to lead their lives with integrity, while contributing to our global community with creativity and compassion.’ In the classrooms and throughout the halls, our mission is evident as the students strive to collaborate, learn and grow.

As principal, I am excited to work with a faculty and staff dedicated to providing enriching learning opportunities for all students; opportunities that enable the students to become lifelong learners and connect with the world around them. We believe that all students can learn, grow and find success. We strive to create an environment where all of the students’ needs are met; an environment where they can flourish and grow emotionally, academically, and socially. The students are encouraged to take academic risks and are given multiple opportunities to find success on many different levels. Hard work is encouraged and celebrated, as positive habits of mind are developed.

Martin Avenue is an incredible learning community where all students are treated with care, love, and respect. I look forward to working with families, faculty, and staff to inspire the students to learn and grow in a safe, nurturing environment. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
James O’Brien
Principal

Students Have Hearts, and Shirts, of Gold

Students Wearing Yellow Shirts to fight against pediatric cancer thumbnail199739

It’s not every day that yellow shirts are the predominant fashion choice at a school, but on Sept. 30, students in the North Bellmore School District were united in the fight against pediatric cancer by making a statement with their wardrobes.

The district hosted its annual Go Gold Day on the final day of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Students and staff incorporated gold, yellow and neon green into their outfits in many different ways. Many children had gold shoelaces and beaded necklaces to show their support for the cause. Others wore shirts with messages like “Be Bold, Go Gold” and “In September, We Wear Gold.”

North Bellmore teachers also made donations to Solving Kids Cancer, which focuses on the development of new treatments for aggressive childhood cancers.

Excitement Is Plentiful as New School Year Begins

Sept. 1 marked the first day back for 2,022 students in the North Bellmore School District, a fitting number for a school year that will end in June 2022.

But no one was thinking that far ahead just yet. Instead, the first day was a celebration of new beginnings. Students arrived with their new backpacks, filled with fresh school supplies, ready to learn and to make lots of memories.

“I want to make this the best year in elementary school,” said sixth grader Edy Volpe, who marked her final first day at Park Avenue Elementary School, which she admitted gave her mixed emotions. She is looking forward to field trips, building a rocket in science and just having fun times with her friends.

There were lots of new faces in the schools this year. In addition to a few hundred kindergartners at the five elementary schools, there were 10 new teachers and several returning teachers. New Martin Avenue Elementary School teacher Jordan Sabinsky quickly learned the building so he could give his kindergartners a tour on the first day, showing them important locations like the cafeteria, gymnasium and main office while also teaching hallway etiquette. His kindergarten colleague, Jennie Kuhn, had her classroom library stocked with books to help her students with the transition, such as “My First Day of School” and “Who Will Go to Kindergarten Today?”

It was also a true first day for administrators at four buildings. Martin Avenue Principal James O’Brien and Newbridge Road Interim Principal Amanda Licci moved from other positions in the district with while Park Avenue Principal Michael DeBlasio and Saw Mill Road Assistant Principal Daniel Madden are newcomers to North Bellmore.
