  • Dear Parents and Guardians,

    My first year as Principal has been very exciting.

    This has been both a productive and successful year.  Upon my arrival at IS 27, the need for technology upgrades was quite evident during the summer months.  After walking the building to personally identify what the school needed most, I began the process of upgrading technology. I ordered Smart Boards for most classrooms, and laptops/I-pads have been issued to most teachers.  Both of our computer labs were updated.  You may notice most classroom blackboards have been upgraded to white boards, making our classrooms both dust-free and modern looking.


    The St. George Theatre will host a twelve day program for young people ages 9 -18 designed to up their game when it comes to personal achievement. The theme Setting the Stage for Success will expose the students to a variety of disciplined classes in dance and theater all to gain confidence in the real world. Through their participation in these arts and educational outreach programs, students will uncover skills and talents in the arts as well as life lessons. Our goal is to share our knowledge of the arts to our students all while we inspire, motivate, enrich and educate!

    For boys and girls, ages 9 – 18.

    Dates and Times: July 21 to August 3   9:30am to 2:00pm

    There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school.
