Waverly Elementary School

Principal’s Page


Dear Waverly Family,

Welcome to Waverly Avenue Elementary School’s website! I’m thrilled to kick off the 2023-24 school year, and know that we have a fantastic school year ahead of us. I am very proud to be the principal of this fine school and build on its long tradition of excellence. The teachers and staff at Waverly have a wonderful reputation for creating enriching, supportive learning environments that facilitate a love of learning for kids.

Waverly Avenue Elementary School hosts UPK through fifth grade and educates just under 500 students mostly from the communities of Holtsville and Farmingville. We focus on academics, arts, and social-emotional learning, and most Waverly graduates move onto Sagamore Middle School as well-rounded learners. We believe that all students can excel, and our goal is to provide the tools and supports needed for all of our students to work toward their potential.

The Waverly PTA serves as a great support to our school community. From field trips to the many fun-filled events that help strengthen the home-school connection, we are frequently reminded of how fortunate we are to have such a fine group of dedicated parents working together for the benefit of our students! I encourage all of you to join the Waverly PTA, and to get involved - the more involvement we have, the better off our students will be!

This school year will be my 6th here at Waverly, 18th at Sachem, and 20th in education, and I’m just as excited now as I was for my very first year teaching. As a former Sachem grad myself (I went through Nokomis, Seneca, Sachem South, and Sachem North), I have always taken special pride in being able to serve the Sachem community - first as a teacher, now as a Principal
