April 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,

            Next week, we will be starting our final marking period of the year.  It is hard to believe that we are facing the home stretch.  Please continue to check your child’s backpack regularly during this busy time of year.

This month we celebrated “Snackarooza”, which is a coordinated effort between our PTA and our Food Service Department in educating and exploring healthy snack options for our students.  We had many parent volunteers help in preparing and delivering healthy snacks to all of our classrooms. Our PTA has arranged for our Scholastic Book Fair to take place from April 9 – 11.  Family night is planned for Wednesday evening, April 10th, so please mark your calendars and plan on coming out that evening to shop for books with your children!

We held our incoming Kindergartener Parent Information Night on March 19th at 7pm.  The night was well attended, and parents were given an opportunity to ask many questions of our administration, transportation director, and kindergarten teachers.  We will be scheduling screenings for our incoming kindergarteners from April 24th – 26th.  After their screening appointment, children and their families will be able to take a tour of our building and see our school in action.  If you know of any friends or family members in our district who have children who will be 5 years old on or before December 1st, 2019, please let them know to call our school to get registration information, if they haven’t done so already.

            We are in the heart of budget season, so please make every effort to stay informed. The district website will continue to post updated information regarding meeting dates, meeting minutes, podcasts and board presentations. Please mark your calendars for our District Budget vote that will take place in the Pawling Elementary School gym on Tuesday, May 21st.

IMPORTANT REMINDER:  The PTA Spring Picture Day is Monday, April 29th.
