Message from the Principal : Mr. Joe Mercora

Dear Friends,

 I hope this letter finds you all well. As the winter break approaches, I wanted to take this time on behalf of our staff to wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season and all the best for the New Year. We are all looking forward to a little time off to spend with our families, friends and loved ones. I can tell that your children are very excited about the coming break as well. We will miss them.

 Next week brings with it some fun events for the children.   We always try to make the last days before break a little special for our students combined with a mini spirit week as well:

 Wednesday, December 19th: Grades 1 and 2 Concert at 9:30 a.m. the concert will be held in the All Purpose Room. In addition to our first and second grade concert, we are also having a school spirit red and black day. It is a day to wear our Nyack gear and show our school colors. The Sean Fleming Band will be at our school to play a mini-concert for our students. Mr. Fleming’s children are graduates of Nyack and his band has been performing for us for years.

  • Thursday, December 20th will be Pajama Day (no slippers please).
  • Friday, December 21st will be Winter Dress-Up Day. Students and staff can wear anything that represents winter or holiday fun. As is also a tradition, our staff, led by Mr. Yankou, will perform for our students at an all-school assembly at the end of the day.  Therefore, it is important that we know in advance of any early dismissal requests. If you show up looking to sign out your child during the assembly, you will have to wait until the assembly ends.  Therefore, advance notice will be appreciated.

 I wish you all a wonderful break and look forward to seeing you all in 2019. Thank you for all that you do to support us.


Mr. Joseph Mercora
