Message from the Principal

Dear Friends,

I hope this letter finds you well. I would like to thank you for your support to our wonderful school. I have personally enjoyed all of our September events which included: movie night, our incredible staff breakfast and our back to school evening and picnic. Words can never express my thanks to our wonderful PTA for the role they play in facilitating these wonderful events in our school. We look forward now to our next PTA meeting on October 5th, Walk to School Day on October 7th , School Pictures on October 21st and Fall Festival on October 23rd.

I would like to speak with you now about your children’s learning environment. I am so proud of the work done each day at Upper Nyack Elementary School to create a mutually supportive learning environment that is inclusive of every student. We strive to continue our work to create an intellectually challenging and stimulating learning environment. Our teachers continue to provide care and concern to all students. They do a wonderful job of managing their learning environment. Together, our mission is to always have a safe, productive and loving learning environment.

I am so proud of your children. They embrace kindness, work through challenges and strive to be the best they can be. There is a wonderful Chinese proverb that speaks of learning as a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. Let us continue our work together as the Upper Nyack Elementary School family to ensure that our precious treasures, the children of Upper Nyack, will be ready to face the world that awaits them with confidence, competence and a true sense of humanity.

My best to you and your family. I look forward to seeing you all throughout this coming month.
