Dear Families, 

Just one more week left until winter break! Thank you to Helen’s class for their community meeting presentation this morning. Congratulations to the Kindergarteners for their first writing celebration! It was a busy week with the first and second graders taking a walking tour of Little Italy, and the fifth graders visiting Federal Hall.  

Next week is a full week. School will be closed beginning Monday, December 26 through Monday, January 2. School will reopen on Tuesday, January 3. Please let your child’s teacher know if they will be missing any days next week. We will be sending home rapid COVID-19 test kits next week to test your child before they return to school in January. 

Please check the lost and found – items not claimed by Friday, December 23 will be donated to charity. 

School photos are available for viewing and purchase. By purchasing your child’s image, you’re also contributing to the Stomping Ground Giveback program – 15% of sales benefit CWS. Please view our school page for viewing instructions. Note: Make-ups, retakes, and sibling photo day on Friday, February 3. To participate in photos on February 3, there is a mandatory sign-up.

To all those families who attended community meeting and the PTA meeting this morning, thank you for wearing masks and helping to keep our students safe. NYC has issued a mask advisory for schools, and we encourage all students and grown-ups to wear masks while indoors. 

Have a great weekend!
