Principal’s Newsletter – December 2016

December 2016

Dear Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with some family time.  It is amazing to me that I am sending out the December newsletter – it feels like the first few months of school passed by so quickly!

October and November are always a busy time of year for our students and staff.  October ended with the PTA Costume Party.  Students and parents danced the night away to the tunes of our very own deejay, Coach A.  Thank you to the PTA for that entertaining event.  The food drive was a huge success as well.  Thank you to all who donated for families in need.  Of course, we can’t forget the memorable evening filled with student led conferences.  It was delightful to see the children sharing their accomplishments and goals with you.  We had many parents attend the Tuesday afternoon parent engagement workshops in Wonders and Go Math hosted by the staff.  Please feel free to email me with Tuesday afternoon events of interest to you.  Don’t forget to bring your children to the school library on Tuesday afternoons between 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. with Pauline Isaacs to borrow books.

We are looking forward to an assembly with the Harlem Globetrotters this month.  The basketball players are going to speak to the students about leadership and believing in oneself.  I’m sure they will entertain us with some basketball moves as they spread their important message.

We thank you for your support and interest during this past month’s conferences.  It is always our sincere intention to work as a team to create the best learning environment for students.  We offer the very best wishes to you during this wonderful season of family, friends and tradition.

Our lost and found is located in the back of the auditorium.  We have many unclaimed coats, hats, sweaters, lunch boxes and water bottles.  Please take time to make arrangements to pick them up if your child was missing any of these items when they returned from school.  All unclaimed items will be donated to a charity during winter recess.

Warmest Regards,

Veronica DePaolo
