Principal's Corner


August 2017
Dear Waverly Community,

I hope you and your families had a wonderful summer vacation. 

It is hard to believe that the summer is coming to a conclusion and the new school year is upon us. I hope your children are as excited as we are for the start of a new year. The staff and I are looking forward to building relationships with families and welcoming and supporting all of our students.  

The first day of school is September 6th.  Our open school night will be September 12th.  Our Grade K-5 open house hours are 6:00 pm through 8:30 pm. The agendas for the evening are located in the Waverly Backpack.

Waverly Avenue Elementary School will continue to provide challenging curriculum and support, ensuring each student reaches their full potential.  Our goal is for our students to have a love for learning, to develop leadership skills and demonstrate good character.   Our belief is that the partnership between home and school is a key component to a rewarding learning experience. I encourage you to contact your child’s teacher with any questions you may have and trust that we will support open lines of communication throughout the school year. Great things are possible when we work together for the success of each child.  

I am looking forward to a great year with many wonderful activities and experiences for our students. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at (631)-654-8690 or

I hope that you enjoy the rest of the summer with family and friends.
