It Takes A Village!
Welcome to the 22-23 School Year! It was a magical two days reconnecting with our Village family and welcoming our newest members.
I am extremely #VillagePROUD of where we are and all that we have accomplished ...TOGETHER! Thank you for your positive energy, patience, and support as we settle into a new school year. We will continue to establish routines and work on areas such as the ever improving bus situation.
The mulit purpose room is BACK!!! We are so excited to return to eating lunch in the multi purpose room TOGETHER!!!! Lunch time is a great opportunity to talk, laugh, and socialize with friends...and make new friends! Socializing is an important aspect of dining because it allows students time to connect with others and have a break in routine. This important time also helps refresh them for afternoon learning.
Have you joined the Village PTA yet?
The PTA strengthens our invaluable family-school partnerships. Joining the PTA is a great way to show support for the programs that are provided, get proactively involved in your child’s education, and meet other parents. Member support is always welcome and does not obligate you in any way.
Questions? Contact: email@example.com
Have you joined Syosset SEPTA yet?
Syosset SEPTA is the Special Education Parent Teacher Association that serves Syosset School District’s children with disabilities, as well as their families.
SEPTA meetings and membership are open to all parents regardless of whether your child is receiving special education services. SEPTA is a resource of people who are available to help parents and children by providing support, education, and advocacy.
