Jill Ten Eyck's Message......

Season’s Greetings,
            The winter concerts were truly inspirational for all of our students and audience members….it was a great way to get into the holiday spirit and celebrate our music department. These musically inclined students also visited the Mountainside in Margaretville along with the Pre-K and brought smiles to faces as the season was celebrated with gusto! Our senior citizens enjoyed our chorus students as they sang during their luncheon at the firehouse.

            Our third grade celebrated Colonial America Day on December 17th and showed off what they have been learning this year. Mrs. Griffing and her first grade students had their “Teddy Bear Tea” and performance this week; what fun was had by all!

            I have included an ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) flier in this newsletter. The New York State Education Department explains this federal law and expresses what parents need to know to ensure students achieve success in school! Please visit the New York State Education Department’s ESSA website for additional information.

            The “No Place for Hate” initiative has begun through members of the Student Council. This movement is through the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) and is designed to promote & empower schools so a safer learning environment is put in place through the promotion of unity and respect with a reduction of bullying and name-calling. Please see “The Resolution of Respect” that was presented to students in grades 7-12 and “The Promise” that was presented to our elementary. I have enclosed these for your perusal.

            Twenty-five students were interested in and will be attending the Peer Training Program through the ADL which will take place over a three day period…enclosed in this letter is also a copy of this program along with the end goals. Feel free to visit the website… for further information.

            The New York State Regents Exams will be held from January 22nd through January 25th. Some students have already been scheduled to sit for these exams; please call Mrs. Maureen Burton if you have questions regarding your child.

Wishing you a safe, happy, & healthy holiday season!
