Dear Old Bethpage Families,
As we prepare for 2019-2020 we reflect on this past year's accomplishments. Our students have grown leaps and bounds! In January our students will begin practicing mindfulness in an effort to address social emotional goals we have set for our students. Mindfulness is paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment and without judgement. It helps to create space and replace impulsive reactions with thoughtful responses. We will have a night for parents, where you can learn more about it and how you can support your children outside of the school setting with these practices. Also, in the New Year our children will continue to visit Stratford Road's Discovery Science Lab. Our goals in all curriculum areas is to reach every student on a personal level, and to inspire them to be engaged active learners. The trips to the lab have been extremely successful. The children come back excited to share what they have learned and our teachers continue with follow- up activities that support their experiences. Our classrooms will continue to promote collaboration and inquiry as we move into 2019 and our goal is to continue to enhance instruction so all students feel success, and excitement around learning. We wish you a wonderful holiday and a happy new year! Below is a link to some great STEAM gifts for the holiday season!
In the event of a Delayed Opening- school start time is 11:15 am. Bus pick-up in the morning would be 2 hours later than the usual pick-up time.
