Join Us! Represent a Country at International Night!

Island Park’s International Night is a favorite and highly anticipated event by the Island Park community.  We are seeking families interested in representing a country with food, flags, educational info, and enthusiasm! 


This event is free for Island Park students and families and will take place on Wednesday, October 19th, from 6 to 8 pm.


If you’d like to participate, please indicate your country of interest on our Sign-Up Genius HERE. We have a number of countries already represented, but we would love to fill the room. Last year, 19 countries were represented.


Each country will display art, treasures, and other cultural information about their country including delicious food samples.  Kids participate by completing a “passport” by answering a question correctly at each country’s booth and will earn a prize upon completion.  It’s a great night to learn more about a new culture and a wonderful opportunity for all of our children to learn from each other! 

Love the event, but don’t have a country to represent? We would love for you to participate as event staff.  


Please contact your International Night event chairs if you would like to volunteer or have any questions:  Cara Perla,, or Erin Sirianni,

Volunteers needed for vision and hearing testing

Come be a part of this important and fun event on Tuesday, Oct. 18th, from 9:00-12:30 in the IP library. Refreshments and training provided!

Math In Action Program has Started at Island Park

The program provides 15 sets of challenges throughout the school year; each set is published every other week starting in late September and ending in June. These math challenges covers problem solving strategies such as draw a picture or model, make an organized list, look for a pattern, working backward, and guess and check. 
Each challenge presents 10 to 18 problems ordered by level of difficulties which enables students from various grades to participate.
