Dear Families,

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Why you ask? Because today, the kindergarteners performed their end of year play. Thanks to the generosity of the PTA, the children have worked for weeks with artist in residence, Maya Workman. During that time, each student had the opportunity to learn drumming and then incorporated movement and speaking parts to bring “Who’s in Rabbit’s House?” to life. They concluded by exclaiming, “I have a voice. My voice is powerful. My voice will change the world!” What a gift, to be able to teach our youngsters that they have a voice and can use it to change the world.

Sibling Day: Incoming kindergarten siblings will have the opportunity to meet some kindergarten teachers, see a class and enjoy a little snack on Monday, June 18, 2018 from 9:50-10:20am.

5th Grade Moving Up: If you have a 5th grader who is Moving Up, please be sure you have sent your RSVP to Marty or Beth to tell them how many people will attend. There are no tickets being issued, but we need to know how many chairs to set up. We want to make sure your family is accounted for. We will call down siblings, so please include them in your count so they can sit with you.

Movers: At this time of year, Central Office always asks to be informed if any family is considering moving out of district. If this applies to you, please email Marty Turlin so that she can submit your names to the registrar’s office.

Looking ahead:

Monday – Sibling Day, for incoming Kindergarten siblings, from 9:50-10:20am

Tuesday – 5th grade trip to Philly

Wednesday – Moving Up and early dismissal at 1:40pm

Thursday – Last day, early dismissal at 1:40pm

Wishing Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing and wonderful men in our lives who love, guide and nurture. Have a wonderful weekend!

Warmest Regards,

Nami Kuwabara, Principal
