ALICE IN WONDERLAND
Congratulations to all of the students involved in performing, building scenery and props, and working as part of our stage crew for our production of Alice in Wonderland. The show was truly amazing and everybody involved was exceptional. Special thanks are offered to our Director, Vic Pignataro, our Musical Director, Lee Compton, and our Set Designer, Alex Vinelli!
ELA EXAM & THOSE NOT TAKING THE EXAM
The annual administration of the New York State ELA Exam will be this week on Tuesday, April 2, and Wednesday, April 3. Make-ups will be offered on Thursday, April 4th.
For those with children not taking the exam, students will be permitted to quietly read or complete independent work while in the opt-out room. Children are not permitted to bring blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, or other such items to school if they are not taking the test as they will not be allowed to bring such items to the opt-out room.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUB PICK-UP
If you are picking-up your child(ren) from a club or after school tutorial (Grades 4-6 or Wilson support), please be advised pick-up is promptly at 3:50. From this point forward, parents will be sent a letter notifying them that they have been late to pick-up their child. If a child is late being picked-up after being sent a letter, their child may take the 3:50 bus home after that or they won’t be permitted to stay for the club or tutorial. Please email me directly with any questions about this policy.

HAVE A DISMISSAL CHANGE?
If you are making dismissal changes, we ask that you please call the office by 1:30 PM. Calls that come in after this time, delay our dismissal process. Calls that come in during dismissal can delay our buses leaving at the end of the day. Please let me know if you have any questions.
