  • Dear Families, 

    Welcome back to the 2018-19  school year!! We were so excited to see so many happy faces this morning. We have been working very hard to get our building ready for the new school year.  Today your children were welcomed back with warm hugs and kisses.  Kindergarten students were smiling and excited to be in the” big school.” All hands were on deck as we greeted all of our students and escorted them to the proper locations in the building.  They were introduced, or reacquainted with school rules and expectations in all of their classes, but most importantly they were laughing and smiling periodically throughout the day. We heard wonderful stories of summer vacations and play dates, and they seemed eager to meet their new classmates and learn more about each other.  I think they felt safe and even happy to be back.... for at least the first week!

    I hope you enjoyed time with your family and friends as much as I did this summer. As the school year begins I wanted to remind you to be patient for the first few days in regards to bus pick up and drop off times. The drivers are learning their routes and may show up a few minutes late to our building to pick up the students.  If you have concerns, please don't hesitate to call.  Transportation’s number is 516-434-3075.

    In your child’s backpacks are important papers including emergency contact cards, and information regarding attendance and safety drills. Please make sure that you join our amazing PTA.  We have new co-presidents this year that have been working all summer long to ensure your children’s experiences are enriched with incredible experiences. PTA is hosting their annual Movie on the Lawn Friday, September 7th. Please make every effort to come and meet some new families, and as always support out PTA! They provide such wonderful experiences for our children.

    I look forward to seeing you all September 12th  for Back to School Night.  Until then, follow us on twitter at @sgraypob  and @DrYannucci to see some pictures from the first few days of school!

    Looking forward to another really great year! 

    Warmest Regards,

    Suzanne Gray
