Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I hope you enjoyed a summer vacation filled with fun, family and exciting memories with your loved ones. We are thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of learning and growing. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.
Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren) to return in September. Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. And, our amazing PTA is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.
This year we have hired 2 new certified staff! Our new Resource Room teacher, Ms. Candice Lombardi, will be coming to us from School 2, where she was a Special Education Teacher Assistant. Ms. Lombardi has experience working with students from Pre-K to 6th grade in all subject areas. In addition, we also hired a new Social Worker for School #5, Mrs. Nicole Caputo. Mrs. Caputo comes to us with experience from a school in NYC. We are thrilled to have her on board!
Remember that Back to School Night is Thursday, September 20th!!!
