School is right around the corner! It’s not too early to start getting ready. You and your family may be eligible under a federal program for Child Nutrition: https://www.fns.usda.gov/cnp/fr-032019

Research has shown that good nutrition has a positive impact on a child’s ability to focus and learn. It is important that we provide a nurturing environment for each child, so that individual success as a student can be maximized.  We would encourage you to review the links below and submit an application.  Even kindergarten students can qualify for meals; which is certainly helpful if you plan to send them to breakfast or for the days when they have a chance to eat lunch at school with the older students.  Please contact Brian Malek for more details.  All information is confidential.  Many families are unaware that they qualify for this meal assistance program. 

Eligibility for 2019-20

Thank you for a great year!

Attached is the summer reading incentive. Please have your child continue to read over the summer!

Students had the chance to create a Virtual Reality tour based upon our field trip to the Fulton Theater. Although it isn’t quite finished, feel free to take a sneak peak! https://poly.google.com/view/ay9_lZFv_XH

The end of the year always brings such mixed  emotions. Many students have anxiously waited for this day for weeks, yet there will still be tears and hard goodbyes.  Change can be hard,  but necessary to push your child out of their comfort zone and grow.

Thank you for your continued support this school year! Have a wonderful summer!

Weekly Update June 3-5

WOW, our year will soon come to a close. Your child has grown by leaps and bounds this year! Thank you for sharing your children with us and thank you for all your support at home. They are ready for the next step. We cannot stress enough the importance of summer reading and review of the basic math facts they have worked so hard on this year.

It is hard to believe – 28 spelling lessons, 14+ math chapters, 8+ reading units with countless reading strategies, 5  science units, 4  social studies units, many home projects (thank you), 6 large writing projects with too many grammar lessons to count. WOW, these children have accomplished much, their teachers are so very proud of them!

Please scroll down for pictures from our garden planting and our bubble day. We had a ton of fun on Friday!
