Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

 October letter.pdf 

 In the words of Helen Hunt Jackson, “By all these lovely tokens, September days are here, with summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.” This has truly been a wonderful week here at Upper Nyack Elementary School. The week started off with a magnificent PTA meeting. I thank our board and our PTA President, Anna Dabney, for a wonderful meeting and look forward to the great events ahead of us. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of some of the upcoming events so you can put them on your calendar. The PTA will be sending detailed information about these events:

 Walk to School Day: Wednesday, October 4

Picture Day: Tuesday, October 17

Fall Fest: Friday, October 20 – Please join us at this great event for the whole family

 I also wanted to communicate a new district policy adopted by our Board of Education regarding birthday celebrations in classrooms. Please be advised that for this year and moving forward, birthday celebrations will now be streamlined into one day per month. Your child’s teacher will now designate one day each month to celebrate birthdays with their class. Parents are invited on that day to send in treats, etc. for their child to celebrate:

             Kindergarten – (please check with your child’s teacher for their classroom policy)

            Grade 1 -           Last Friday of month

            Grade 2 -           Last Friday of month

            Grade 3-            First Friday of month

            Grade 4 -           Last Friday of month

            Grade 5 -           Third Friday of month

 We realize this will take a little getting used to for all of us and we thank you for your cooperation as the district implements this new policy. If you have specific questions about this new policy, contact the Director of Physical Education, Athletics & Wellness, Joe Sigillo.  I wish you all a magnificent weekend and look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 28th.  Look for a detailed letter about this early next week.



  Mr. Joseph Mercora
