Welcome to Deasy Elementary School

I am writing to you as the new Principal of K. A. Deasy Elementary School! I consider myself so fortunate to be chosen and already realize I am part of a very special team!  Deasy School has a history of providing a successful and supportive school environment and I look forward to ensuring this history continues.  With the dedication of our tremendous staff, I intend to work closely with the entire Glen Cove community to support our school’s commitment to the academic, emotional, and social development of all our students.

It is my hope that while maintaining open communication with each of you, our partnership will continue to encourage a positive school culture to support your child’s love of learning. Together, we can provide a purposeful school-community that nurtures individual needs, encourages creativity, and embraces a child-centered, learning environment.  We remain committed to inspiring our young children to grow as independent thinkers as they explore the world around them.  Every year, Deasy classrooms are filled with curious students bursting with energy, limitless dreams, and extraordinary talents and I am excited for the opportunity to share in all their discoveries, laughter, and accomplishments throughout the school year.  

As I transition to the role of Principal here, I am keenly aware that Deasy is a warm and supportive school-community.  Together, we will continue to ensure that your child has a productive and memorable school experience.  I welcome all of you to participate and be part of what will prove to be an exciting and rewarding school year.  

I look forward to meeting all of you and would like to extend an invitation to attend our Open School Night on Thursday, September 24th from 7:00 - 8:30 pm in the all-purpose room (Our first PTA meeting starts at 6:30 pm). Our Open School Night is a very important event and our teachers look forward to sharing the curriculum and reviewing our goals for the year. I hope to see everyone there to meet the teachers and get the year off to a great start!
