Dr. Doelger and Students on Halloween
  • December, 2022

    Dear Shelter Island Community:

    Welcome to the holiday season.  It has been a joyous time here at the Shelter Island School; mainly because of our amazing staff, students, and families.  Our winter concerts were nearly “sold-out” and our students sang and played their hearts out.  The Chamber of Commerce hosted a beautiful tree lighting ceremony.  Our building is also becoming more and more festive each day.  We will have many fun events planned in the coming days including door decorating contests, ugly sweater contests, and of course our famous PTSA Holiday Boutique. 

    It is also important for us to always remember those who could use a little extra help during this time of the year – whether it is financial or maybe even emotional.  As joyous as this time is for many of us, for others, it can be a bit sad.  Let us work together to make sure, no matter what holiday we celebrate, if any, that we always reach out to help our neighbors and make their lives better.  Looking out for others is definitely a hallmark of this beautiful Shelter Island Community.

    I look to the New Year with great hope and joy for our school and community.  I never take a second that I come to this beautiful island for granted.  I wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday season.  If there is ever anything you need, please do not hesitate to email, call, or better yet, stop in to see me.

    Season’s Greeting,

    Dr. Doelger
