Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

 Dear Friends,

I hope this letter finds you well. As we get close to Thanksgiving, let us remember that it is not happy people who are thankful it is thankful people who are happy. That being said we are thankful for all of our Upper Nyack Families.

 While November is upon us, it is amazing how the weather is remaining warm. I have started wearing my sweaters to work and will take them off in the scheduled spring. As always, your children are amazing. Watching them learn everyday has been a pleasure. Seeing our teachers work with such dedication and joy is truly inspiring. We are very lucky to be an Upper Nyack Elementary School family. This week has been a week for the adults to learn. Our Superintendent’s Conference Day provided us with many opportunities to collaborate and experience new techniques that can help us with our work. In addition, please know that we are working hard to better prepare your children for success in the twenty first century. November is an exciting month full of many wonderful activities for students and families. We also try to have a little fun in all things we do.

 This Thursday, November 9th, Elmo and the Cookie Monster will be back greeting your children as they come to school to celebrate the anniversary of the first episode of Sesame Street. You will also see Mickey and Minnie back on Friday, November 17th as your children enter school. November 18th is Mickey Mouse’s Birthday so we will start the day with Mickey and Minnie and finish the day with a great Book Fair Celebration.  Next week, we look forward to our annual Book Fair. Please join us on November 17th at 7:00 p.m. for our Book Fair Party. This is always a wonderful event and we hope you and your family will join us. In addition, November 17th is also our annual district-wide Open House celebrating American Education Week. Please see the schedule for times you can visit your child’s class.
