2017 - 2018 Welcome From Our Principal
Mr. Rosario M. Iacono
Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year. Each school year provides the opportunity to set and achieve challenging academic and personal goals. As Principal of the Robert W. Carbonaro School, it is my distinct honor to serve the students, staff, and families of our community. I encourage all stakeholders to become active members of our school; your efforts will greatly impact the lives and experiences of our children. It is my pledge to work with you, your child, and the staff to continue to foster a strong sense of community in order to ensure the well being of our children.
The Valley Stream UFSD 24 School Board and district administration provide critical support and leadership to the Robert W. Carbonaro School. Their service and dedication to our students is invaluable and steadfast.
This school year will feature the first year of GO Math. It is the first K–6 math program written to fully support new standards. GO Math provides teachers with in-depth instructional support, embedded Professional Development videos and tips, and a wealth of differentiated instruction resources to ensure the depth of instruction required for student success.
The GO Math program combines 21st-century educational technology with modern content, dynamic interactivities, and a variety of instructional videos to engage today’s digital natives. Every student is supported through the universal access features of the program as they learn to think critically and apply their math knowledge. Whether using the innovative Online Student Edition or Write-in Student Edition, students have all the resources they need to succeed.
Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a key stakeholder for our learning community. The RWC PTA provides support and opportunities for our students. Together we are able to enhance the educational experience of all our students. The partnership is vital in securing educational opportunities for our students. The strength of our PTA is made possible by many families coming together to lend a helping hand, volunteer time, and take on events for the benefit of our children.
I am looking forward to a continued strong parent involvement for this upcoming school year. I invite you to be active members in our PTA, attend school-wide events, communicate openly with our teachers and myself, and enforce the concept of diligent work. Together we need to set our student, staff, and administration’s expectations to high levels in order to achieve excellence.
