May Newsletter

From the Desk of Mr. Coakley

The nice weather has finally arrived! It is hard to believe that we are in the 4th quarter, which signifies the final stretch of this school year. It is exciting to see the students working hard and meeting their goals. I encourage the students to keep working hard and finish strong!

The month of May honors three very important groups of individuals that make education possible: Teachers, Nurses, and the Transportation department. Please take a moment to thank these people for everything they do each and every day for your child(ren). I truly believe that Malone Central has the best Teachers, Nurses, and Bus drivers in the area. Thank you for everything you do.

There is a lot planed for the month of May, so please take a look at the list of events. As usual please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for all you do for your children.

The Nurse's Office

Just a reminder to parents of students in 5th grade. Your child will need immunization prior to entering 6th grade. I have mailed a reminder home to any student that needs to be immunized. New York State mandates children in Kindergarten, grade 1, grade 3, and grade 5 have a physical. If your child has had a physical this year after September 6th and you did not have physician fax a copy to me, please do so. The physical will be good for students entering the above mentioned grade levels next year. If your child has any medical conditions, please notify me in the health office at 518-483-7803, ext 2, or send email to: Thank you!
