Dear Families,

This was a fun week at Slingerlands as we celebrated Dr. Seuss’s 113th birthday! Check out the website for some great pictures https://www.bethlehemschools.org/slingerlands-celebrates-dr-seuss-birthday/ . A special thank you to Thing 1 and Thing 2 – Sasha Goldberg and Alice Murphy and The Cat in the Hat Jr – Katie O’Neil who helped me visit classes.

Next week we will celebrate the 47th year of our 5th grade musical. This year the children will be performing “Maria’s River.” Once again, the playwright and director is Mr. Betor. The performances are on March 9th and 10th starting at 7pm. Tickets will be sold at the door for $3.00. Doors open at 6:15. Please join us for an exciting evening!
