Letter from Principal Ksanznak, Mar. 29

Filed in Hamagrael by on March 29, 2018

Dear Parents,

The children are looking forward to the break that begins tomorrow, Friday, March 30 and goes until Sunday, April 8.  School will be back in session on Monday, April 9. For those of you traveling for the break, have a safe trip and those staying local, enjoy the time with family and friends.

When we return from break our students in grades 3-5 will be taking the New York State ELA Exams on Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12.  The assessments provide us with information on areas of strength in our program and areas in which we can improve to help each child have a successful school experience.  All parents should have received about the assessments from our Assistant Superintendent Mr. David Hurst. The letter can also be found on our website. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Our final CAPER program of the school year is scheduled for Thursday, April 12 beginning at 6:30pm in the auditorium.  There will be a used book swap, a new book raffle and delicious treats at intermission so come on out and enjoy listening to our outstanding student readers.  Thanks to our PTA for their support of the program and to our coordinators Marcene Lee, Jennie Mahony and Katie Suhr for their efforts organizing the program four school community.

Our Grade 5 DARE graduation will be held on Friday, April 13 at 9:30 am in our auditorium.

If your child participated in our annual Science Fair, they will be bringing home a “Science Fair Award” certificate today.  Our students really did an amazing job!

We wish all the best to our Hamagrael Elementary School Odyssey of the Mind Teams that will be participating in the New York State Championships in Binghamton on April 7.  Good Luck to our teams!
