Congratulations on a fantastic 2nd session of enrichment clusters. Loved seeing the photos shared by teachers. Looking forward to Wednesday.

As per my email on Friday, we have a handful of children who still need to complete the PARCC as a result of the evacuation. This will take place on Wednesday at 9:15 in my office. We will follow a regular schedule.

Thanks to all staff members who took the time to provide examples of inquiry from the current school year. I realize there is a lot going on and appreciated it.

Friendly reminder that massages will be available to interested staff tomorrow. Thanks to JoAnn for coordinating.

Have a wonderful week ahead!


Updated: Budget

Budget information has been shared with staff. Forms are due on Wednesday, June 1st.

Placement cards have been distributed. They should be completed prior to tomorrow's meeting. Our May faculty meeting (5/16) will be dedicated to placements. All staff input is valued; it will be important for all certified staff to be in attendance.

An email containing student separations and homeroom assignments of children with IEPs has been sent. Please review both documents carefully. Also, you will received a copy of any placement emails/letters I've received from parents.

Reminders from Mr. Suozzo

Please click here for updates regarding annuals and completion of SGOs.

When preparing for your annual, please make sure to complete your SGOs and your PGP, including your hours. We will also discuss your goals for next year's PGP, so please think of what you might want to be working on for the future.
