Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

 Dear Amazing Families of Upper Nyack Elementary School,

 I hope this email finds you well and that, hopefully, we can start to enjoy the season of spring. There is an old expression when talking about the weather in the month of March. It states that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. I am hoping that the lambs have arrived! It is hard to believe we have reached the end of March.


 It has been a pleasure seeing so many of you at our recent parent/teacher conferences.

  • Thank you to our P.T.A. for a wonderful staff appreciation lunch. It was so thoughtful and kind of you all to think of us.
  • Bingo Night was a huge success and so much fun. Thank you to our MC, Dean Gianakouros and lead coordinator, Danielle Cassidy. Thank you to the many parents who assisted throughout the evening.


 Spring Break begins on Friday, March 30th. We return to school Monday, April 9th.

  1.  ELA State Testing for grades 3, 4 and 5 will take place on Wednesday, April 11th and Thursday, April 12th.
  2. Spring Fling Dance for parents and students will be held on Friday, April 20th from 6:00 - 8:00pm. Just a reminder this is not a drop off - parents must attend this event with their children.
  3. Family Gym Night will be Tuesday, April 24th. More information will be coming about this wonderful event.


 For your support and cooperation with our new entrance policy for morning program. Thank you all for helping us keep your children safe.

 I can never say it enough that I consider myself very lucky to work with such an amazing group of students, families, teachers, teaching assistants, secretaries, nurse and security guards that always put the needs of our students first every single day. I wish you all a wonderful week ahead, a great spring break and look forward to your child’s return to school on Monday, April 9th.


Mr. Joseph Mercora
