May 2021

From the Desk of Ms. Cimino

We are so excited to extend our school day starting on Monday May 10. Students will dismiss at 3pm. Please remember to send a lunch with your child, or to use the online ordering system that has been in place to order lunch for the week. Due to new guidelines school lunch will continue to be free until June 2022.


For students who dismiss on Deal Ave. we will begin with our youngest students at approximately 2:50pm (PS and K). Older students will be dismissed closer to 3pm. We will continue to use the same procedures that have been in place. Thank you for your cooperation.


We would like to thank our PTA for organizing an amazing Book Fair event! The students have loved having the experience of purchasing their books in person again. We are thrilled that we are able to offer a Family Night on Monday May 10 from 6:30-8pm. The Book Fair is in the gym, so please use the Deal Ave. parking lot and entrance. Masks must be worn, and social distancing will be enforced, we thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Kids Heart Challenge

Mr. Colarusso has been working with the American Heart Association on this year's Kids Heart Challenge! Monday May 10 is the last day to sign up for the challenge (See the link below)! Remember, the class in each grade with the highest percentage of students taking the challenge will each earn a $25 Amazon Gift Card for the class and each student in the winning class will receive a Mystery Heart Hero backpack keychain! If we reach our goal of 120 students taking the challenge, Mr. Colarusso has agreed to get Silly Stringed by the first class to have all its students taking the challenge (or the class with the highest %) and the Top 3 fundraisers! To date, Mrs. Kitson’s class is in the lead!
