Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is hard to believe that the school year is almost over and we are already planning for next year. Parents should have received a Parent Input form to take part in our placement process. As a reminder – The last day of school for students to date is June 22nd 2017.
In the months of May and June we have many events and activities planned to celebrate the accomplishments of the school year.
• Our Spring Book Fair will take place May 9-May 12th. We once again will have our “Grand” Lunch opportunity. This will be divided into two days, Grades K-3 are scheduled for May 9th 2017 and Grades 4-6 are scheduled for May 11th 2017. The Book Fair will also have Evening Hours on Wednesday, May 10th from 5:30 – 7:00. Come and get your free smoothie! This is a BOGO (buy one, get one free) book fair. We hope that you join our continued efforts to celebrate reading.
• Our PTA sponsored, Artist in Resident (AIR) Program will take place on June 7th, 8th, and 9th. The theme of the event is The Kaleidoscope of Art. In addition, through the New York State Performance Improvement Grant we have been able to increase Integrated Arts experiences.
• The June Picnic is scheduled for June 9th 2017 at 5:30. Come on out and join the school family.
Once again our school will be going through construction over the summer. We will be receiving a curtain divider for the gymnasium and more roofing work will be completed.
Very soon you will receive information about two additional summer school options. We will have two K-6 district sponsored programs this summer. Both will integrate tenants from the Districts Arts Integrated program, the Wallace program, and Leading and Innovation Greenhouse. Please inquire with your child’s teacher.
In addition, we are piloting a Virtual Summer School for students entering Grades 4-6. This program is for scholars who traditionally do not attend any summer programming and who have access to internet and a computer at home. This is a pilot program that was created to determine if this can potentially provide continued instructional opportunities during the summer.
Last but Certainly not Least…… Thank You!
As a school community we also want to take this time to thank Nazareth College for the work they did at School No. 46 this year. The Partners for Learning and Fellows Program were once again huge successes. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the college next year.
Also thank you to volunteer Judy White, and the Women’s Club of Pittsford for their generous donations. We are currently securing more technology thanks to their supportive fundraising efforts. Their support of our school has been simply amazing!
