A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRINCIPAL
I would like to congratulate our students in grades 3 through 6 for doing such a great job on their New York State ELA tests! The New York State Math tests will be administered May 2nd through May 4th. Our fourth grade students will take the NYS Science test on May 26th & June 1st. We are all very proud of the students’ efforts during these last few weeks.
On April 27th, our Band and Chorus students did a great job performing in our Spring Concert. They performed in two shows that were both well attended. Mrs. Hansen and Ms. Busia continue to work hard with our students throughout the year to make our concerts so successful.
Our annual Variety Show will be held on May 19th at 6:30 PM. Please come out and see our 5th and 6th grade students perform live on stage!
On Tuesday, May 16th, the VOTE for the 2017-2018 School Budget and Election of School Board Members will be held in each elementary school from 6:00AM to 9:00PM. Please exercise your RIGHT TO VOTE! The Business Office will be mailing Budget Newsletters to all District residents in the very near future. Copies of the proposed Budget will be available on the counter in the office at Mt. Marion School.
Our second Kindergarten Visitation Day for next year’s Kindergarten Class will be on Thursday, May 18th at 9:30. I am looking forward to seeing the students and parents again. The students will have the chance to meet our two Kindergarten teachers and take a fun bus ride!
Please remember that there is NO SCHOOL for students on:
May 16th for Superintendent’s Conference Day.
May 29th for Memorial Day.
Please remind your child(ren) that they should not bring trading cards of any kind to school. There have been several instances of students losing, trading, taking, and giving cards away. This has caused some students to become upset and distracted in the classroom.
A Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms, grandmothers, aunts, and other fabulous women who help to raise and care for our students!
