Dear Families,

This is my last edition of Mrs. Miniero's Weekly News for the 21-22 school year. As I reflect on my first year as principal, I am grateful for your support and I am proud of the achievements of all our students and staff. This year we welcomed your children back to full day in-person instruction after 18 months of uncertainty. The entire staff was committed every single day to providing all children with a welcoming, safe, and enriching environment. You trusted us and we appreciate you!

I was so excited to sign my name on the 5th grade diplomas. I've known most of these children since they were four years old and to watch them develop into the wonderful human beings they are is more special than I can express in words.

Our youngest students also stepped up to kindergarten and first grade and we are so looking forward to welcoming them all back in September.

I hope that you take this time to rest and relax. Enjoy summer vacation!

Thank you!!!!

Thank you to our PTA Executive Board for providing our children a wonderful 5th grade graduation and dance!

Thank you to Ms. Ettinger for helping me organize a wonderful send off to Ms. Alland. Yes, our Physical Education teacher Ms. Alland is retiring after 30 years of service. Today we presented her with a plaque dedicating the gymnasium in her honor and all students in the school cheered and chanted for her. She was so happy!!!
