Weekly Wrap Up

Benedict A. Cucinella School 3/18/2022

Week 28

We had another great week last week starting out with a PTO sprit day and the remains of what will hopefully be the last of the snow on the ground. As the week went on, the temperatures got a little warmer just in time for those crazy leprechauns to come through and spread some St. Patrick's Day cheer (and maybe a little mischief) through our school. BAC was wearing it's green on Thursday while the Irish eyes were smiling upon us.

On Friday, we ended our week with our first in-person (and online) Coffee Chat with our parents. It was wonderful to see some of you coming together in our cafeteria for the first time this year. Moving forward, our future Coffee Chats as well as our PTO meetings will be held in person. We hope more of you will be able to attend!

Looking Ahead:

Tuesday, March 22nd - 4pm - Parent Portal Opens for Trimester 2 report cards

Thursday, March 24th - 3rd Grade World Culture Day

Monday, March 28th - Friday, April 1st - SPRING BREAK - NO SCHOOL!

Monday, April 11th - BAC PTO - 7:00pm Cafeteria

Looking forward to another great week,

Melissa Keiser
