Principal's Message

Clinton Avenue is one of four elementary schools in the Comsewogue School District. As a primary building, our student population consists of approximately 450 children in kindergarten through second grade. Our team is devoted to providing a caring and secure environment so that all children can express their individual talents.

The entire Clinton Avenue family is dedicated to excellence in all aspects of education. We have a Balanced Literacy Approach to reading which engages students in meaningful experiences focused on reading, writing, listening and speaking. The program seeks to expand literacy achievement for all students by concentrating on the strengths and needs of each child. 

Our teachers participate in ongoing professional development to refine their skills and stay current with trends in education. They collaborate often to share best practices and analyze data in order to inform instruction and best meet the needs of our children.

Integral to the success of our school is the involvement of the Clinton Avenue PTA. The goal of the PTA is to enhance and support the school in a number of ways. Kindergarten Roundup, Spring and Fall Book Fairs, the Holiday Boutique and Author Day are a few of the many wonderful events organized and sponsored by our PTA. This year, Lisa Rizzo is our President and Megan Puleo is Vice President. Along with Executive Board members, they will be seeking your participation to make these activities successful and enjoyable for everyone involved.

Thank you for taking an interest in your child’s development and for sharing in our passion for learning. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year.

Sincerely,
Toni Bifalco
