This week we finished our 1000Book Program for the year!  This is such an important program as it fosters a love of reading and helps children get off to a great start in reading!  Many thanks to Tracy Momrow, Cate Keating, Sarah Allawala, Hilary Bernacki, Zehra Meghani, Kerry Pilek and Shali Natesan for their hard work all year. A very special thank you to Marla Gornstein and Nicole Heckman for their leadership with coordinating this program.

  • Our final day of school for the 2016-2017 school year is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21st. We will have a 12:10 p.m. dismissal on that day.
  • We will send out an SNN at some point on Friday, June 23rd to let you know when your child’s report card will be ready to view on ASPEN.
  • On Wednesday your child will bring home their AIMSweb report for the spring benchmark. A letter from our Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Dave Hurst, will be posted on ASPEN, explaining the report.

Happy Father’s Day to all our Slingerlands Dads!

Have a great weekend!
