Supporting our students and teachers is a wonderful group of aides, custodians, office staff, and administrators. No school would be complete without the community it serves and the Saw Mill community is incredibly proud and supportive of their school.

Here at Saw Mill we work hard every day implementing the Common Core Learning Standards and strive to reach the inspiring goals of our district’s mission statement. As an elementary school, we have our students for the beginning steps on the passage through their academic life. While ensuring we create a warm, fun and energetic school environment, we also pay careful attention to the fact that students are learning the foundational skills that will set them up for a lifetime of learning and living.

New North Bellmore Administrators Embrace District’s Values

Two new administrators have joined the leadership team of the North Bellmore School District, one from a western Nassau County school district and the other from the west coast of the United States. As of July 1, Michael DeBlasio is the new principal of Park Avenue Elementary School and Daniel Madden is the new assistant principal of Saw Mill Road Elementary School.

Mr. DeBlasio has six years of experience as an assistant principal, most recently at Forest Road School in Valley Stream District 30 which, like Park Avenue, serves kindergarten through sixth grade. He was a special education teacher for 10 years in District 26 in Queens, where he also began his administrative career. Mr. DeBlasio holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in education, both from Molloy College, and school building and district leadership certificates from the College of St. Rose.

As principal, he looks forward to fostering wonderful relationships with the school community and the North Bellmore School District. Mr. DeBlasio said he also strives to continue Park Avenue’s strong traditions in creating an atmosphere of excitement, passion and a love for education while leading students to even higher levels of success.

“I hope to bring a sense of focus in capitalizing on our teachers’ powerful instructional practices where teaching the whole child is a priority,” he said. “I also hope to bring an outlook that success is found in creating young scholars that take pride in their work and obtain the skill set to become productive, compassionate and educated leaders.”

Mr. Madden returns to Long Island after three years as an educator in California. A native of neighboring East Meadow, he began his career as a substitute teacher in North Bellmore, before becoming a science teacher at Park Place Middle School in Brooklyn. That was followed by a six-year stint at the Smith School in Manhattan as a sixth grade science teacher, learning specialist and assistant head of school.

In the San Francisco Bay Area of California, Mr. Madden was the director of student life and support (grades K-8) and the dean of the lower school (grades K-4) at the Woodland School. He hold a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from Binghamton University, a master’s degree in elementary education and middle childhood science education from Hofstra University, a certificate in teacher of students with disabilities from Brooklyn College, a certificate in educational leadership from St. John’s University and a certificate in advanced educational leadership from Harvard University.

Mr. Madden said he is elated for the opportunity to join the North Bellmore community, and to work alongside Saw Mill Road Elementary Principal Jeffrey Rosof.

“The values of integrity, compassion and courage, that are embraced and shared by the North Bellmore community, have inspired my practice as an educator and school leader,” Mr. Madden said. “I believe it is a privilege to arrive at this moment, where I will be able to support the community as we instill those values in our students and to partner with families, faculty and Mr. Rosof in bolstering those strengths of character.”

A Track and Field Triumph in North Bellmore

The sixth grade track and field meet is an annual tradition for soon-to-be graduates in the North Bellmore School District, and although students from the five schools couldn’t come together this year at Mepham High School due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event still went on in modified form.

The track and field contest took place throughout May at each school during physical education classes. Events included the 50-, 100- and 200-meter runs as well as the javelin throw, shot put and long jump. The top five boys and girls at each school were recognized.
