A Message from the Principal

March 1, 2016

Dear Parents and Guardians, (click here for Spanish)

The month of March will be keeping our students and faculty busy with exciting learning opportunities and school events.  Students are preparing for “Spotlight on Fitness” which will be held on March 10th for the primary and intermediate grades.  “Spotlight on Fitness” provides a wonderful opportunity for parents to participate along with their children in fitness activities designed to teach students about the importance of diet and exercise.  More information about this event will be sent home shortly.

Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 continue to prepare for the New York State English Language Arts and Mathematics Assessments.  Teachers have been busy preparing our students for these assessments through a variety of instructional practices and activities.  The English Language Arts Assessment will be administered April 5th - 7th.  The Mathematics Assessment will be administered April 13th - 15th.

The “Reading Connection” for the month of March is filled with ways to read with your child.  This is a wonderful opportunity to help strengthen your child's reading skills and most importantly, spend quality time together.  I encourage you to participate in the activities and as always take time to read together.

Enjoy the Spring season!
