I Like Me Books

The Telephone Pioneers, a committee dedicated to enhancing our community, gave each of our Kindergarten students their own I Like Me Book. Books are personalized with each child's name. The children were thrilled to read and take them home. These books are a true gift to remember Kindergarten.

A VERY special Earth Day Assembly!

School No. 2 students participated in a very special Earth Day Assembly. The assembly was created and given by Mr. Buset's second grade class. The class wrote letters to Mrs. Castaldo with a proposal of an Earth Day Assembly. During their assembly they introduced new recycling bins for each classroom. Mr. Buset's class decorated each bin! It was a great event.

Autism Awareness Month

School No. 2 and 3 Celebrated Autism Awareness Month. Mrs. DeLia and Ms. Bariso worked with all students throughout the month of April. They read stories, made projects, and did activities to promote Autism Awareness. We ended the month with a school wide bubble event. During this event students were able to read what Autism means to them. It was a wonderful celebration with a fantastic message.
