About Flower Hill

Placeholder image Placeholder image
Flower Hill Primary School

Flower Hill Primary School has established a well-deserved reputation in the community for emphasizing academic excellence and social growth. Opened in September 1954, the school today houses students ranging from kindergarten through fourth grade.

Flower Hill School is committed to helping its students achieve their full academic potential and to supporting the development of social skills that will help each child successfully navigate through the school setting during their formative years. To this end, Flower Hill’s goal is to consistently provide a learning environment that fosters the intellectual, emotional, social and physical development of each student.

Flower Hill’s staff of caring professionals offers a child-centered educational program in a supportive and nurturing environment. It is hoped that by providing teaching that inspires, informs and challenges, teachers and support staff can instill a love for learning that will continue throughout each child’s school years and beyond.

In addition to the rich regular day classroom program, each child receives instruction in art, music, physical education, library skills and technology from teachers who are specialists in each of these areas. Flower Hill also has a school nurse, psychologist, social worker, reading and math specialists and other professional staff members who provide critical support to students.

A strong partnership between students, parents and teachers is very important to daily life at Flower Hill. Principal Marlon Small and all teachers and staff members are confident that by working together to build a positive collaboration between home and school, Flower Hill will continue to provide quality educational experiences for all of its students.

Marlon Small

Flower Hill Primary School Principal Marlon C. Small began his career in the district in September 1999 as a fourth grade teacher at Huntington Intermediate School. Three years later he was named dean of students at the school, a position he held for a year before moving with his family to Georgia.

Mr. Small went on to work as a sixth grade social studies teacher in DeKalb County, Georgia and the following year was named assistant principal at Margaret Winn Holt Elementary School in the Gwinnett County Public Schools.

Returning to Long Island in July 2005, Mr. Small was hired as assistant principal of Birchwood Intermediate School in the South Huntington school district. He was named Flower Hill principal in July 2006 and has guided the school with a steady and strong hand ever since.

A 1992 graduate of SUNY College at Old Westbury with a bachelor's degree in American studies, Mr. Small earned a master's degree in elementary and special education at Adelphi University in 1999. He later obtained a professional diploma and state administrative certification at Dowling College in 2002.

Prior to coming to the district, Mr. Small was a case worker at Berkshire Farm Center and Services for Youth in Melville, where he assessed and matched foster children with appropriate homes, completed assessments of youth and family and developed goals and objectives for treatment and provided group, family and individual support to foster children and families.

Flower Hill Policies

  1. If your child is absent for illness, please call the school at 673-2139 and send a note of explanation in with the child upon his/her return.
  2. When bringing a child in late or picking the child up early, please come into the building to sign him/her in or out with our attendance secretary, Mrs. Debra Ciccone.
  3. If you wish to go to your child's classroom, please sign in first and wear a visitor's pass. If you wish to stay to observe a class, please call and make arrangements with the teacher in advance.
  4. Good bus behavior is expected of all of our children. Please remind your child to stay seated, wear a seat belt, and to follow the driver's instructions.
  5. In our effort to emphasize respect, parents will be contacted if children are disrespectful, cruel or physically aggressive toward others.
  6. Our "Citizen of the Month" program is designed to recognize acts of kindness and good citizenship. Every month we honor a boy and a girl from each grade.
  7. Our code of discipline is really a Bill of Rights for all of our children. Every child has the right to learn in a safe environment.
  8. Any time a child is injured or ill, the parent or guardian will be contacted. It is important that parents provide us with up to date emergency contact numbers. Emergency cards are kept on file in the nurse's office. These cards can also be download from the printable forms menu.
