Principal's Message / JUNE 2017




Principal's Newsletter  


Dear Parents and Students,

         Some IMPORTANT dates are as follows:

KINDERGARTEN ORIENTATION for 2017-2018 will be held on JUNE 9th at 9:00 a.m., in the gym.  You should have received an invitation letter for this event, as needed.

The Kindergarten & Grade 5 Graduations will be on June 19th at 5:00pm for Kindergarteners and 7:00 p.m. for grade 5 in the Memorial High School Auditorium.  Since this time will be special and endearing to the families of our “Graduates” we ask that only immediate family and grandparents attend the assemblies.  This is to allow enough seats and room for our guests and extended families that certainly wish to participate with the experience of this event. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Class parties will be held in each homeroom beginning at 2:00 p.m. on June 20th.                      Contact your class parent to see if you may help with the festivities or if you have any questions.

The Preschoolmoving-up ceremony” is scheduled for June 21st  at 9:00 a.m. in our gymnasium.

Evening Awards Assemblies (grades 1-4) will be held on June 21st.  Please be aware of the times.

You should ONLY attend if your child’s teacher provides you with an awards letter INVITE.

Take special note that the last three days of school (JUNE 20, 21, 22) will have a 1:00 p.m. student dismissal. No Breakfast or Lunch will be served from Pomptonian Food Services.   Teachers will allow the children to bring a small snack and/or a small lunch to school as needed.

The last day of school will be on June 23rd.  The final report card will be posted on the parent portal on this day and a copy will be sent home or mailed if your child is absent on the last day of school. You will also be informed of the teacher and room number for September.

The end of June is always bittersweet for me. When the children leave on that last day, the halls and classrooms are strangely quiet and lifeless. Yes, I really will miss the children, but I also know that we all need time to rest, read, rejuvenate, relax, recreate, reflect and repose. So let that list be your summer motto, the 7 R’s!   Please also review all summer assignments with you child.

September 2017 is just around the corner!

Warmest regards,  

Dominick J. Silla, Principal
