Important Information Regarding Delayed Openings,
Early Releases and School Closings

 

Dear Babylon Families and Community Members,

The 2017/2018 school year will long be remembered as a year that was defined by remarkable academic, athletic and extracurricular accomplishments. We were again moved by the performances of our stellar musicians, artists, thespians and athletes. I am also so grateful for having the pleasure to have worked with some of the most eloquent student leaders throughout my entire career.   

Whether it was with DECA, Robotics, Mock Trial, athletics, theatrics, All-State or All-National Music, they astounded us.  In the 13 years they spent walking the halls of Babylon Schools, they surely have left their mark on all aspects of our community while managing to balance their pursuit of academic excellence and zeal for making a difference globally.

The class of 2017 will always hold a special place in my heart.  They served as terrific ambassadors of the greater Babylon community.  I have no doubt our graduates are going to be successful as they begin their professional studies that will ultimately prepare them for life.   

Take a look at some of the photographs posted below, as they represent one of the most emotional days of the entire school year.  Our annual “Senior Walk” is a new tradition that the district started back in 2015.  It is a day in which all graduates walk the halls throughout the district donned in their caps and gowns as they give their final “goodbyes” to their teachers of the past who played a part in molding them into the fine young adults they are today; it is also the day in which our youngest students watch in amazement for what their own futures hold!  As you can gather, it is a most-touching, teary-eyed day but one of the most celebratory days of the academic year.  To all parents, I thank you for guiding your child along the way; your support, love and encouragement was truly the defining factor in raising these amazing young men and women who before long will be considered as “Babylon alumni”.  

With that, in September 2017 we will welcome the entering Class of 2030.  They will come rushing through our elementary schoolhouse doors with their crisp name tags and little backpacks on as they begin a new chapter of this school district.  They, too, will someday leave their unique mark.  For our new parents to Babylon Schools, we welcome and embrace you …and be sure to cherish every moment and enjoy the wonderful ride!

In closing, this summer publication of Babylon Highlights is a celebratory edition dedicated to the Class of 2017.  I hope you enjoy reading about our graduates’ many accomplishments and accolades.  To the Class of 2017, we send you off with grateful acknowledgement for all that you have accomplished.   May your futures remain bright and your dreams always come true.

Very truly yours,


Mrs. Linda J. Rozzi
Superintendent of Schools
