Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

 Dear Friends,

 I hope this letter finds you well. Looking back at the month of April we can all be reminded of what an amazing place this school is. We have amazing students, teachers and families working together to make this school great each and every day. So many people to celebrate and say thank you to:

  • P.T.A. – for a wonderful spring dance
  • Mr. Cirafici and Ms. Brega – for a wonderful Bring Your Family To Gym Night
  • Ms. Winze and Ms. Johnsen – for all of your hard work and dedication with our students who performed in the Jimerson Strings Festival and Bandapalooza over the past week
  • Ms. Maddalena, Ms. Horan and Ms. Santulli – for a wonderful Autism Awareness Assembly last week. We thank all of our families for their support of the Nyack S.E.P.T.S.A. fundraiser
  • Our students – for being amazing and courageous in their learning and being kind to their fellow students.
  • Our teachers – for their leadership and support of the students
  • Our parents – for their support, volunteerism and assistance in all we do

 Spring Concerts:   May will be arriving and there are many days to keep in mind. Here are a few to mark on your calendars.

  • Wednesday, May 23rd – Grade 3 Concert will be at Upper Nyack Elementary School at 9:30 a.m.
  • Wednesday, May 30th – Grades 4 and 5 Concert will be at Nyack High School at 7:00 p.m.

 State Testing: Just a reminder that Math State Testing will take place for grades 3, 4 and 5 on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 1st  and 2nd.  Like the ELA examination, the test has been shortened to two days and there is no time limit for students to finish.

 The month of May also features a variety of wonderful events for all of our students.   They include:

  • Earth Fest – Friday, May 11th     
  • Field Day – Friday, May 18th (Raindate: Monday, May 21st)

 On behalf of our school, I wish you a wonderful month of May. I hope to see you all in the coming weeks.
