Dickinson Avenue Elementary welcomed a new principal this summer — Mrs. Laurie Welch Storch! Mrs. Storch comes to the district after seven years as principal at Fulton Avenue School #8 in the Oceanside Union Free School District. During her career there, she focused on cultivating successful, student-centered learning environments to maximize academic achievement, nurtured the unique school culture and more. Before that, Mrs. Storch held both principal and vice principal positions in Florida from 2001-2011.

“I am delighted to become a part of the Northport-East Northport community,” said Mrs. Storch. “As the new school year begins I look forward to creating long-lasting relationships as we create excellence together!”

On Aug. 22, Mrs. Storch met her new students, along with their families, at a special Disney-themed evening meet and greet. Dickinson’s new principal read aloud some of her favorite books to those in attendance, and many of those in attendance brought their own to share as well.

Welcome to the district, Mrs. Storch!
