A Message from Ms. Santa
Grade 5 Locker Day
The CDW Grade 5 Locker Day is on Wednesday, August 17th beginning at 10:00 AM and ending at 12:00 PM. As Grade 5 students will be using lockers for the first time when transitioning to CDW, we offer a time for them to come in and prepare their locker before school starts. There will be Student Government representatives at CDW guiding the Grade 5 students through the process. Parents are also welcome to come and assist their child(ren).
See the flyer below and attached for more information.
Summer Academic Work
Summer work is meant to guide students to review the essential skills learned in reading and math throughout the year. This allows them to transition more smoothly to the next grade level. The links are below, and the information can also be found via the CDW website under, "For Students."
- Please see Ms. DiPisa's information letter, and here are the required Summer Reading recommendations for all grade levels.
- Here is the strongly suggested Summer Math Work. Please read the correspondence and complete the work associated with your child's grade level completed during the 2021-2022 school year.
Supply Lists for the 2022-2023 School Year
The PTO will be selling prepackaged school supplies through School Tool Box. Please see the School Tool Box information below.
Join the PTO!
Volunteers play a huge part in the PTO and what we are able to offer our students and teachers. Without volunteers, many of the programs that students, teachers, and families enjoy will not be able to happen. Volunteer descriptions can be found at: OTPTO.org under "More Info" and then "Flyers."
If you have interest in joining the PTO Board, joining or running a committee, or just want to learn more- please reach out to the PTO by visiting OTPTO.org and selecting "Contact Old Tappan PTO" under the Help tab.
Genesis Homeroom/Period 1 Release Date
Each student's Homeroom/Period 1 class will be shared with families via the Genesis Parent Portal at the end of August. Prior to these assignments being released, parents need to complete the Summer Packet 2022-2023 Forms and Documents on the Genesis Parent Portal.

Reminders and Updates from CDW's Student Manager
Fall Sports: Soccer and Volleyball
Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s):
In order to participate in any of our middle school sports programs, your child(ren) must have his/her most recent medical records on file. Please speak with your child(ren) to see what sport(s) he/she is interested in and make sure to submit all medical documents by the dates below. Unfortunately, your child(ren) will not be able to participate/compete until all medical documents have been submitted, reviewed, and approved. Please be mindful that all physicals expire after one calendar year. Therefore, if your child(ren) submitted a physical around October 2021, then he/she will need to submit a new physical before October 2022 to complete the fall season on the team.
Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
*Intramurals will begin in the fall and will be held throughout the year.
DUE DATES for FORMS:
Submit between July 1, 2022, and August 30, 2022
Submit before October 14, 2022
Submit before February 10, 2023
*All forms must be submitted to the school nurse, and coaches will verify all medical documents are on record.
Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Forms
Please use the Health Office Information Link for all medical documents.
All of this information can also be found in the Student Handbook.
