From the Principal's Desk

Hi DiPietro Families,

This is been a rather eventful week. I will keep this message brief because there has been a lot of written correspondence from not only me, but Mr. Marano as well.

While I know that the world's pandemic has been at the forefront of many of our minds I would like to use two short paragraphs to focus on our number one priority....our little ones. :)

Every day our Pre-K - 3rd graders have been coming and showing readiness to learn. Below are a few pictures that capture our week. Your children should be able to respond to the "Ask Me About" questions below as it focuses on their learning. These next two weeks are a great time to take advantage of our "Mrs. Cavossa's Bedtime Stories section" below.

Please view this letter as it outlines the next two weeks. I urge you to read it in its entirety as our staff have worked hard for your children these past few days to prepare for "an in the event of case" which came sooner than we anticipated.

I am looking for ways to have some daily contact with with your children. Stay tuned!

Your principal,

Mrs. Friedman
