Dear Families,

Spring Concert and Arts Exhibition

 Wow! Our 4th and 5th grade members of the orchestra, band, and chorus dazzled on Monday evening! Together with the many families in attendance, I was so proud of their wonderful performances! Congratulations once again to our young musicians and many thanks to our music teachers, Suzanne Greene and Doug Zantay, for preparing our students so well!

The Arts Festival looked beautiful in the Anne Hutch gymnasium! Families and students enjoyed viewing the many artworks created under the expert guidance of our fantastic art teacher, Gina Zohar. Thank you to our PTA as well as the custodial team for helping to set up the show!

Overdue notices have gone home, so if you suspect a book is lost, please email me and let me know.  Please do not wait until June…I can be reached at If you pay for a lost book and it turns up before June 22nd, please have your child bring it to the library so that we may refund your money.

Reading is not just a September through June pleasure!  To encourage summer reading, check out the Summer Reading Programs at the Eastchester Public Library, Tuckahoe Public Library, or Scarsdale Public Library. Happy reading!
