Dear Parents and Guardians,
Happy spring! Hopefully the wintry weather is behind us, and we can all
settle in for some milder weather. It was a busy March as we just
finished up with PARP (Parents as Reading Partners). The students read
over 63,409 minutes-truly an amazing job! Even though PARP has ended, we
still encourage all of the students to read every night.
This month is shaping up to be a busy one at SES. Our second graders
will be going on a field trip to see The Musical Adventures of Flat
Stanley at the John W. Engeman Theater in Northport. As baseball season
begins, we will be visited by Long Island's own Quacker Jack, mascot for
the Long Island Ducks; our EXCEL program will be hosting a family night
fundraiser on May 18 when the Ducks play the York Revolution.
This month's character trait is citizenship. This trait is all about
getting our students to be the best people they can be. As I shared with
all of the students during a Code of Conduct assembly last month, being
a good citizen is all about respecting others, exhibiting leadership
qualities, being compassionate, and being the best learners they can be.
April also brings on Spring Recess from April 10-15. Due to the use of a
snow day, school will be in session on April 17. We wish everyone happy
holidays this month.
Until next month, take care.
Principal, Sherwood Elementary School
