Character Education Mission Statement
The mission of the Edward J. Bosti Character Education Initiative is to empower all children in our community with the knowledge, skills, and aspirations needed for the development and practice of positive character traits throughout their lives.
Students across the Connetquot Central School District donned purple on Sept. 13 to show their support for Islip Goes Purple. Islip Goes Purple is a monthlong initiative designed to unite the Town of Islip in raising awareness of mental health, substance use disorder and celebrating those in recovery.
In talking about students who wore purple to raise awareness of mental health, John Pearl Elementary School Principal Brian Winkle added, “Students are taught that it is important to take care of their minds and bodies, focusing on overall wellness.”
“This is the first year students in the district are wearing purple for IGP Day,” said Director of Student Services Joanne Pisani. “It’s great to see so much of our Connetquot school community supporting this cause and showing solidarity!”
