• 2017 PRIDE Survey Results were presented to the Board of Ed. and Community on Tuesday, Nov. 28th. The Power Point is attached, here...

    OCADA (Our Community Against Drug Abuse) Coalition will present outcomes and insights from our most recent PRIDE Survey results. 

    The PRIDE Survey was given county-wide to 8th and 11th grade students in the Spring of 2017.  Results and analysis provide important information to the school community regarding substance use, availability, perception of risk and trends among our youth.  To find out more about OCADA, please visit

Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

  December 4, 2017

 Dear Friends,

 I hope this letter finds you well. We certainly hope you had a great Thanksgiving. On that note, I never tire of telling our families how thankful I am for all that this school community brings to my life. 

 I would like to thank:

 Our P.T.A. and Fifth Grade students for running both the Movie Night and for organizing the Holiday Boutique this past weekend.

  • Our teachers and staff for all of their hard work and dedication

 Important Reminders:

Parent Teacher Conferences are by appointment only. They will be held during the day on Tuesday, December 5th and  Tuesday, December 12th. Evening Conferences will be held on Thursday, December 7th.

  • This Tuesday, December 5th and next Tuesday, December 12th are 11:45 a.m. dismissals. Parents, please make arrangements for your child to be picked up from school or bus stop. Afterschool programs (YMCA, Nyack Center) are not receiving students on half days. Always be advised these programs are independent of the school.
  • Parents, we more than understand and anticipate on days such as these you may have different people picking up your child (grandparents, siblings, friends, neighbors) Please review our pick up procedures with these caregivers so they are not parking in prohibited areas (front pick up lane, etc) and leaving their cars. Also, please be clear as to what door they are picking up students.   Little things like this make a big difference in facilitating a smooth and calm dismissal. Staff will be outside to assist as well.
  • Winter Concerts: Grades 1 and 2 Winter Concert will be held on Thursday December 21st at 9:30 a.m. The concert will be held in the gymnasium.   Please refer to my letter regarding specific winter concert information for each grade.

 I wish you all a wonderful beginning of December and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming school events.


Mr. Joseph Mercora
