ARRIVAL PROCEDURES – Thank you for following our procedures at arrival! When dropping off students by car, please make sure your child exits the vehicle along the curb whenever possible. Please remember that students are not to be dropped off before 8:15 AM. There is no supervision until that time. Please know that your cooperation on these matters will help ensure the safety of our children.
LATE ARRIVAL - If your child arrives late, he or she must get a late pass from the front desk before going to their classroom.
DISMISSAL PROCEDURES – Please note that there is no supervision after 3:00 PM. Also, please refrain from signing out your children after 2:45 PM or asking for them to come off of the bus at the front desk after 2:45 PM.
CHANGE IN DISMISSAL ROUTINE – If your child must leave early for any reason, we need a note written to the teacher’s attention the morning of the change in dismissal. It must be dated and signed. Email or voicemail will not be accepted as a change of dismissal routine notification.
ATTENDANCE - Out of concern for your children, please call (914)793-6130 ext. 5111 EVERY time your child is not in attendance. You will reach a recording asking you to leave the first and last name of your child, date, class and reason for absence. If a student is absent without a parent calling, Mrs. Petrone will call the family. The absence must be followed by a note upon return to school indicating why your child was absent. We hope to insure the health and welfare of all children with these increased communications and precautions.
The children in third grade visited the Stepping Stones Museum in Norwalk, Connecticut where they experienced interactive, fun-filled learning. The museum offered vital learning experiences that enabled our children to discover, create, test, explore, observe, predict and make sense of the world around them. Engaging museum exhibits, spaces and programs supported the concept that children learn through play. In the Energy Lab whether manipulating cranks to expose sunlight, maneuvering the path of water in the Ballcano or directing air into the Wind Lab, learning about energy was never more fun! Kids actively discovered that energy is all around us and important to everyday life. Kids learned that building and designing requires many different tools and materials. A raised structure and building area kept children actively engaged as they designed and decorated an unfinished house. In Gadgets and Gizmos the children learned that circuits run the world! They explored the flow of energy through circuits and powered up lights, buzzers and motors. Then had fun designing their own vibrating robot. It was a wonderful day!
Mrs. Tedeschi's third grade class has learned that traditions are passed down in all families. Through traditions, the children learned about many different cultures. We celebrated many of these traditions on Monday, October 24, 2016. See attached file for photos

Farm To Table Executive Chef Vincent Nargi from The Odeon in TriBeCa visited Mr. O'Neil's 5th Grade Class to host the first official Farm to table event. Mr. Nargi showed us how to properly cut onions and garlic, make homemade Mayonnaise, Tahini Sauce, Caesar dressing and pickled Swiss Chard. The class then divided into 4 teams and worked together to create vegetable fricassee using escarole, chard, spinach and pak choy from the class garden.
