Letter from Principal Bonacquist, Jan. 17

Filed in Slingerlands by on January 17, 2020

Dear Families,

I am leaving this in for a second week in case you didn’t read my big news!

As we head into the year 2020 I will be completing my 20th year at Slingerlands!  This will also be my final year as principal here. I love the work I do with your children everyday and I will really miss them! My retirement will be effective as of July 1st.  The district will post the position in the next few weeks and I will keep you informed about the hiring process. Slingerlands is a very successful school and special community. I will do everything I can to ensure the transition to new leadership will be as smooth as possible.

Applebee’s  Fundraiser

Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser is on Saturday, January 25th from 8 am – 10 am. Help support the 5th grade by bringing your family out for a fun breakfast with friends, and proceeds will help fund Nature’s Classroom!
More details coming next week!
