Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

Dear Friends,

 It is hard to believe that March is quickly coming to an end. I would like to thank you all for your support and cooperation of our work. As spring is upon us, we are taking the time to speak to our students about all the ways they can continue to be mindful of their work and behavior over the coming months. We continue to be so proud of them in all that they do. This letter is a time for me to say thank you and to also remind you of some calendar items for the month of March. You can also expect a letter towards the end of next week which will speak exclusively to the very busy and wonderful month of April.

 Thank you!

  1. To our P.T.A. for a wonderful BINGO NIGHT this past Friday. A special thanks to Dean Gianakouros and Danielle Cassidy for all of their hard work in putting this together.
  2. To our fabulous fifth grade parents who assisted in the production of our fifth-grade play. A special thank you to parents Katie Green and Dianne Snyder for their leadership of this time-honored fifth grade tradition.  Our appreciation and gratitude to our own music teacher, Mr. Steve Yankou for volunteering countless hours of his time working with the children on this project.
  3. To our BRAVE STAFF who will be playing against the Harlem Wizards on Sunday March 31st at Nyack College. We certainly hope you can join us as it will certainly bring you a BIG laugh.  
  4. To Inspire Nyack for all they do to support our amazing district. This is a reminder that their Casino Night will be held this coming Saturday, March 23rd at the Nyack Seaport.

 Upcoming Dates to keep in mind:

  1. Friday, March 22nd – School Closed for students – Superintendent’s Conference Day
  2. Saturday, March 23rd – Inspire Nyack Casino Night – 7:00 p.m. – Nyack Seaport
