Principal's Message - A New Beginning

  • Dear Stagecoach Parents and Families:


    I am honored and privileged to be the principal of Stagecoach Elementary School. I have worked in the Middle Country School District my entire career educating elementary, middle, and high school students. The support that the Middle Country community gives to its schools ensures that all children are successful learners who can reach their highest potential.


    The entire faculty and staff of Stagecoach Elementary School is fully dedicated to our shared vision of creating a warm, caring and safe school which focuses on high academic achievement. We believe that collaboration and communication between school and home is essential to the learning process of our students. By working together, students, parents/guardians, and staff will ensure that Stagecoach Elementary School is an exciting and enjoyable place for all children to learn. There is also a huge focus on nurturing social development which is crucial to developing decision-making, communication and life skills, as well as character values. These values and skills that our children acquire during their elementary years will serve as the foundation for future success.


    As stated before, you are an integral part in your child's educational process. Among the most significant contributions you can make is to allow time for your child to read at home every day and to make sure there is a quiet study space for them to utilize when completing school work. Also, you should expect your child to regularly attend school. Attending school on a regular basis is crucial to the learning process and missing instruction will result in difficultly keeping up with the demands of our rigorous curriculum.


    Communication is key to your child's success and I encourage you to initiate and maintain regular communication with your childs teachers. Feel free to contact me either by e-mail at or by phone at 631-285-8730. Again, its through collaboration and communication of all our stakeholders that we will ensure a productive and positive educational experience for our students. It is an honor for me to serve as principal of Stagecoach Elementary School as we work together towards our shared vision.
