Principal's Message


Amanda Muldowney


March, 2016

Happy Spring! On behalf of our entire staff, I thank you for visiting the Leo F. Giblyn School webpage! The elementary school years are a particularly exciting time for students and our Giblyn family. Staff, families and community members come together to serve each and every student in his or her unique needs and talents. Our school community strives to instill in each child the excitement that comes with learning, where the bar is set high and the academics are aligned to the New York State Standards. Our teachers and staff are highly qualified and committed to serving all aspects of each student — academically, emotionally and physically. We value character development, and our Character Education Committee provides monthly incentives for students to demonstrate good character. Each morning, we recite the following “Giblyn Character” pledge during morning announcements:

Respect, Responsibility and Citizenship too,
They bring out the best in me and you.
Trustworthiness and being fair
Help to show others that we really care.
We all know what’s right,
We all know what’s good,
We will all do the things we know we should!

Many great things take place at our school through family and community collaboration. If you would like to be involved at Giblyn, please consider volunteering or attending one or more of our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meetings. Dates and times are listed each month in the PTA calendar. Your involvement makes a tremendous positive difference for students and our school.

Our Giblyn family is dedicated to understanding and meeting the needs of each and every student, and we value your participation and input. Your ideas, suggestions and involvement in our school help to make it an even better place for our students. You are always welcome to stop in and see me, call me at (516) 867-5260 or email me at    

Best regards,

Amanda Muldowney
