Dear Parents/Guardians,

Happy Summer!

Thank you for all of your support throughout the year!

Some of the highlights for the 2014-15 academic year:

  • We had over 90 participants in the Fourth Annual Riverfront Book March
  • Over 250 people were fed at our Second Annual Multi-Cultural Pot Luck Dinner that also included a heritage poster contest thanks to Ms. Calix, Ms. Garcia, and Mr. Deveaux
  • All classrooms from K-6 participated in the ArtsWestchester residency program courtesy of a grant with the Yonkers Public Schools.  In addition to the students learning about dance or mural painting, all of the children were able to go on a field trip to such great locations as the Museum of Natural History, Muscoot Farm, and a play at Queens College.
  • Tier 2 Words flourished throughout the lessons and morning announcements.  Please ask your child for examples of Tier 2 Words.
  • The math modules helped our students enhance their critical thinking and math skill set.  The word 'decompose' is known by students in Grades 1-6 and how it can translate to ELA.
  • We had our first 'Moving Up' ceremony with our sixth grade class.  We are very proud of them and wish them continued success.
  • Our Second Annual Field Day at Tibbetts Brook Park was another smashing success. Thanks Ms. Conrad!
  • Last September, over 70 students submitted reading logs.  All of the students earned free books.  We hope to double that number this summer!  Continue to read daily!
  • Students in Grades 2-6 learned how to create, monitor, and implement SMART Goals!  We have challenged all students to have a SMART Goal for July and another one for August!
