Letter from Principal Ksanznak, Apr. 13

Filed in Archive by on April 13, 2017


Dear Parents,

All Bethlehem Central Schools will be closed for April break April 14-21.  School will resume on Monday, April 24.  Have a wonderful break and safe travels to those of you who are going out of town.

We have finalized schedules for a few upcoming events that I would like to make you aware of.  On Tuesday, May 9 author Sarah Weeks will be visiting Hamagrael to talk to our students about her work as an author.  Her schedule for the day will be:

  •                         9:45-10:15    Kindergarten and Grade 1
  •                         10:30-1:15    Grades 2 and 3
  •                         2:00-2:25       Grades 4 and 5


On Wednesday, May 10 we will be participating in the National Bike to School Day program.  Last year Hamagrael had the highest number of participants in Albany County and we would like to keep the trophy here at Hamagrael for another year!

Our Hamagrael Spring Concert schedule has been set.  Here are the dates and times for the performances:

            Thursday, May 11               2:15 p.m. – Grades 4 & 5 Choir

            Monday, May 15                 2:15 p.m. – Grades 4 & 5 Orchestra

                                                                                    Grade 5 Band

            Monday, May 15                6:30 p.m. – Grade 4 Orchestra, Grade 4 Choir

7:30 p.m. – Grade 5 Orchestra, Grade 5 Band and Grade 5 Choi                             

During the week of April 24 we will conduct a practice lockdown drill.  New York State regulations require that we practice these drills four times a year.  We review the procedures with the children and explain to them that it is like having an indoor fire drill.

Please remember to check our website to keep up-to-date with the events coming up here at school.

Have a wonderful spring break.
