Principal’s Corner-

This past Friday, we hosted a PTA-Principal’s Breakfast for parents and amongst the topics discussed was the wonderful schedule of service learning projects that the students have been or were planning on undertaking in the coming weeks.  For a look at the plan for the projects, explained by grade go to ..\Service Learning\Service Learning Projects.pdf

New York State English Language Arts will be administered this coming week.  The tests, which will be administered on the computer, are no longer timed and have been shortened to two days instead of three.  The ELA exams will take place on the following days:

ELA:    Grades 3 & 4 – Tuesday, April 2nd and Wednesday, April 3rd 

Grades 5 & 6 – Thursday, April 4th and Friday, April 5th 

 The district does encourage all children to take their respective New York State assessments.  We would be more than happy to speak with you on the phone to explain the recent changes that NYSED made to the assessments and how the district continues to utilize the data derived from various assessments to meet the learning needs of your child.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate call me (Mr. Seinfeld) at 516-992-7270.
