Together, We Learn!   

September 15, 2014

Dear Parents,

     We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  It is hard to get used to these cooler temperatures so early in the fall!

     Tonight is the Beginning Band Instrument Meeting at 6:30 PM at Ray Middle School. It was originally scheduled for 7:00 but moved to 6:30.  We hope you can attend this important meeting if you have a beginning band student.  

     We began our Excellence Team last Friday!  The following students were on the Excellence Team:  Connor Daughton, Stephen Thomas, Michael Naprawa, Megan DeMarco, Livia Zoanetti, Gwen Matt, Kamryn Barton, Jack Mahaffy, Nicholas Hurley, Dane Alton, McKenna Brennan, Erich Haust, Anne DeMarco, Jake Gipe, Stephen Knieriem, Ayla Fleming, Emilee Salzman, Cesar Perez-Marino, Leigh Zacchia, Olivia DeFazio, and Max Funiciello.  Congratulations, students!  Thanks, again, to Sal's Pizzeria for donating the pizza and our PTA for supplying the milk and paper goods!

     The following students are on our Announcing Team for this year:  Maeve Bartell, Emily Forman, Madeline Hludzenski, and Allison Hay! These students will be training our other 5th graders from their classes throughout the year on how to do the morning and afternoon announcements.  We really appreciate the students for taking on this responsibility!

     Students from Mrs. Nolan's class are manning the Safety Patrol.  Mr. Wilcox supervises these students, and they help remind students to walk and be responsible as they enter and exit the school.  Each of the fifth grade classes will have the opportunity to help us with Safety Patrol over the course of the year.  

     On September 29th and October 6th, our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will be receiving anti-bullying lessons through McMahon-Ryan.  Our school received a grant this year to receive this instruction.  This is perfect timing, because on October 16, all of our students will be participating in a special interactive anti-bullying assembly.  No one should ever feel teased or bullied, and this assembly, sponsored by our PTA, will help our students prevent this kind of behavior.  

     On Thursday, October 2nd and Friday, October 3rd, we are having Special Person's Breakfasts.  This is put on by our Food Service Department and is a chance for a special person or persons to come into school and have a fun breakfast with the children before school. Here is the schedule for October 2nd---2nd at 8:00 AM; 1st at 8:15; Kindergarten at 8:30. On October 3rd: 5th at 8:00; 4th at 8:15; and 3rd at 8:30.  Sign-up letters are going home soon, but we wanted to make sure you got this onto your calendar!

      We have a half day Professional Development Day coming up on Thursday, September 25th.  On these half days, all students are dismissed at 12:15 PM, so our teachers can work on various curriculum or professional development activities.  If you are going to change your usual routine for where your student goes, since it is a half day, please be sure to send in a note that morning!

     That same day, Thursday, September 25th, is our school's Curriculum Night.  Curriculum Night is a chance for parents to come in and meet their child's teacher and learn more about the curriculum, routines, activities, and expectations for the grade level and class.  Because the presentations are geared toward the parents, we ask that children not attend.  The staff is very excited to share this important information with you!

     Everyone is excited about our Wellness Walkathon (Students may run, jog, skip, etc.!) coming up on October 7th.  Thanks in advance for considering to help our PTA and children with the donations/fundraising activities.  This is going to be a fun day for everyone, and we really appreciate your support!

     Enjoy this sunny Monday!


Steven W. Frey
