I hope this letter finds you well and getting ready for the long winter break ahead of us. The first part of our year is certainly moving fast. As many refer to this time of year as a time for giving, I wanted to share something with all of you.
Throughout our years working with your children at Upper Nyack, we try to inspire both academic and personal goals to make them not only a strong student, but a good citizen. One of these goals is the importance of giving when possible. I am proud to report that our staff demonstrated this by donating $1,230 to Hospice of Rockland County. This organization cares for people with serious illnesses and has helped many of our families in Upper Nyack. As I have said many times, it is an honor to work with this staff who, “walk the walk as well as talk the talk.” My congratulations to them. This is a perfect time of year to show this example.
To the P.T.A. for a wonderful Book Fair program. You all did a wonderful job.
Just a few reminders:
This Friday, December 20th is an 11:45 a.m. dismissal as we finish our afternoon Parent/Teacher Conferences. This is a reminder that the Y.M.C.A. and Nyack Center afterschool programs are closed and will not be receiving children.
We wish you all a wonderful winter break and truly look forward to seeing your children and family when we return from the break.
Joe Mercora, Principal
