Dear Families,

The Monster Mash was a fantastic event!  The event was very well attended and was a huge success!  The children looked fabulous in their very creative costumes!!  Check out all the great pictures on the district’s Facebook page.  A special thank you to Kari Shekhter, Miten Negandhi, and Bethany Bortis  for organizing the event – they did a  wonderful job!! We have amazing events for our children because of the many volunteers who help out – thanks to all of you!!

We will be celebrating American Education Week from November 13th – 17th.  The schedule is on our website.  Today, your child should be bringing home a packet with many details about the week and the classroom visits.  For more information:

Recycling store plastic bags – Pam Held, one of our librarians, has set up a box in the lobby to collect plastic store bags.  She will be sending these to be recycled. Please bring in your bags to drop off in the lobby!

Leftover Halloween Candy? Daisy Troop #1106, made up of twelve 1st graders from Slingerlands, is working with Operation Gratitude to collect leftover candy to be sent to servicemen and women around the world. Collection bins will be located in the primary wing and in the main lobby from Monday, 11/6, through Thursday, 11/9. If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Lemperle Correia at

Have a wonderful weekend!!
