Cornell Academy Pledge

I am a successful and responsible student.

I put good effort into my class work and homework.

I smile at least once a day.

And I will persevere at home and in school.

I know for me to succeed it is up to me!

Daily Announcements

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am sure you join us in welcoming warmer weather as we move forward in April.

Important Notices:
  • Students in Grades 3-6 will be participating in the NY State English Language Arts exams April 14-16 and then with the math assessments from April 22-24.  Students and teachers have been working diligently (Tier 2 word) in preparing for the exams.  We sent home an information sheet with more details in the March report cards.
  • Each class from Kindergarten-Grade 6 have been engaged with the ArtsExcel program is made possible with generous funds through a New York State Assembly Grant

    to the Yonkers City School District in partnership with ArtsWestchester.  Please ask you child(ren) about their activities with the resident artist.  Teachers collaborated with the six resident artists to blend the arts into the curriculum.  It has been a highly successful program.  We will have a ArtsWestchester Day in June so students can display their talents (either painting or dance).

  • We now have a Parent Coordinator---Elena Resina.  She is here each Wednesday and Thursday.  Please feel free to stop by and greet Ms. Resina or schedule an appointment by calling our school (376-8315) and leaving a message.

Please continue to encourage your child to read 30-45 minutes daily.
