Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

Dear friends,


I hope this letter finds you well. It is hard to believe that we have already arrived at the Memorial Day Weekend. The year keeps moving faster and faster. I can say for certain that it has been a wonderful, gratifying and adventurous journey. We look forward to these final weeks of school full of many activities!  First, may I share our gratitude to some very special people:

  1. A.S.A.P. Team – Thank you for your continued support of our children’s passions. We will be finishing up our final session on Thursday, May 30th.
  2. Fourth Grade Team – Thank you for another wonderful Colonial Day experience for our students.
  3. Green Team – Thank you for our celebration of EARTH B.E.A.T. Special thanks to Jen Patuto and Angela Davenport Conway for all of their work and leadership in making this event possible.

 As we move forward, a few events to keep in mind:

  1. Tuesday, May 21st – School Budget Vote. Please make sure you get out and vote.
  2. Thursday, May 23rd – Grades 1 and 2 Spring Concert at 9:30 a.m. in the All Purpose Room.
  3. Friday, May 24th and Monday, May 27th– School is closed in honor of Memorial Day. School resumes on Tuesday May 28th.
  4. Wednesday, May 29th – Grades 4 and 5 Spring Concert will be held at 7:00 p.m. (Nyack High School)
  5. Thursday, May 30th – Clarkstown Police Officer Norman Peters Internet Safety Tips For Parents – 5:30 p.m. (UNES Cafeteria)
  6. Tuesday, June 4th –  5th Grade DARE Graduation  9:30am
  7. Friday, June 7th – Upper Nyack Field Day for all students
  8. Saturday, June 8th – Goosetown Bazaar 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. – All are welcome!
  9. Thursday, June 13th – Officer Paul Gebbia – Internet Safety Tips For Parents Part 2 - 7:00pm (APR)

 You will notice that I have worked to provide two additional opportunities for parents with regards to internet safety to assist parents in keeping their children safe while using the internet. I do this primarily because we hear so much in our world about harm as a result of dangers that exist on the dark web. My goal in providing these opportunities for parents is to provide informational tools needed to protect children.

 Thank you again for all of your support in all that we do. I wish you all a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
