We are now in full swing with the third trimester. We will, however, be recognizing our Honor Roll and Perfect Attendance students for the 2nd trimester at our Awards Assembly this Friday at 1:15 PM in the auditorium. We will also be celebrating Women in History Month with a presentation by some Grade 5 students recognizing the accomplishments of 8 women from history. This will follow the distribution of awards on Friday. Next Thursday we will have the finals of our Math March Madness competition with the two finalist teams squaring off in the auditorium at 1:15 PM. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend both events.
Spring break begins on Friday, April 3 and students return on Monday, April 13. The New York State ELA tests for Grades 3-5 will take place on April 14-16. It is extremely important that the children in these grades complete whatever recommended activities that their teacher assigns during the break.
Please remember to keep Pat Bertoletti and Denise Hynes in your thoughts and prayers. Ms. Bertoletti continues her fight with cancer while Ms. Hynes has a long rehabilitation process from her knee injuries.
Thank you for your attention in these matters.

Mr. Cordero's Fifth Grade class completed a research project about Endangered Species. They worked in teams, and each team chose their own animal. The students used books from the L!brary collection and online resources for fact finding. Each team created a Power Point slide show to share what they learned. Classroom parents were very happy to join the class for their oral presentations. Nice work, boys and girls!
