  • Dear Old Bethpage Families,

     Time is flying!  There are only eleven school days in November until Thanksgiving- can you believe that?  Soon our students will be performing at their holiday concerts and shopping at the holiday boutique!

     Thank you to our fabulous PTA for continuing to support our school with so many cultural arts events and fundraisers that the children truly enjoy!  Thank you to all of the class parents who came in to celebrate Halloween and to those who volunteered for the fourth grade Journeys program.  ( Check out our twitter pages to see photos of both!)   I especially want to thank  the families who volunteered their time to create an amazing float for our Homecoming Parade.  There were so many smiles that day! Working together on projects like that demonstrates the commitment to making Old Bethpage the best it can be for our students and for our community.  This year we will continue to support Island Harvest by collecting nonperishable food items such as canned and packaged goods.  Thank you for joining us in this initiative and supporting this very important cause!

    Take a look at our calendar for the coming days:

    *  No School - November 6th (Election Day- Parent Teacher Conferences)

    *  No School - November 7th (Superintendents Conference Day)

    *  Evening Conferences- November 8th

    *  No School-November 12th   ( Veterans Day)

    *  No School - November 22 - November 23rd (Thanksgiving Holiday)

    Ask your child about what they are learning in class. I have seen some innovative approaches to teaching math and science during my classroom visits and I’m blown away by the children’s math responses!  Ask them about the books they are reading or what they are learning about the characters in their books. As always, thank you for partnering with us to make every day count for every student!
