The district announces that Earl Mitchell has been named the Assistant Principal of Edmund W. Miles Middle School, which serves seventh- through ninth-grade students. Mr. Mitchell is beginning his 20th year in education, and was the middle school’s Dean of Students for the previous three years.

Prior to coming to Amityville in 2015, Mr. Mitchell was a social studies teacher and department chairman at Baldwin Middle School, and a social studies teacher at J.W. Dodd Middle School in Freeport as well as the high school’s junior varsity basketball coach. He also served as a social studies teacher and College Now program director at the East New York Family Academy in Brooklyn.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in education and history, a master’s degree in education and social studies from Adelphi University, and an administrative certificate from the College of Saint Rose.

“I’m honored to be able to serve students, parents, faculty and the community in a greater capacity,” Mr. Mitchell said. 

Middle School Welcomes Seventh-Graders

Administrators, teachers and support staff greeted incoming seventh-graders as they attended orientation on Aug. 23 at Edmund W. Miles Middle School.

Back in June, as sixth-graders at Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School, they made the trip a mile north to experience a typical day in the middle school. For their second visit, they were invited to orientation with their parents to learn about the opportunities and expectations. 

Principal Ed Plaia reviewed the courses that they will take as seventh-graders including math, science and social studies, a double period of English, physical education and health, Spanish or French, and electives. He spoke about the eighth-grade curriculum, in which students are accelerated in math and science to earn high school credit, and the rigorous academic demands in seventh grade to prepare for that. 

Mr. Plaia encouraged students to make the most out of middle school by attending extra help, joining an extracurricular activity or sports team, and making sure they are on time for their classes. 

Students were able to take home free binders and notebooks as they gather their school supplies for the upcoming school year.
