Dear Parents,

Happy Valentine's Day ! Please check all the treats that were enclosed with your child's valentines to ensure there are no allergy issues. Thank you!



BIOGRAPHY BOOK REPORT FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH-----  MANY ARE STILL DUE !!!
The outline will be sent home tomorrow. All students must have book selected by then. There is a tear off to be returned by Thursday which will include the name and author of the book and a parent signature. 
The students will read the book and begin filling in the outline. We will begin writing the report the week after vacation. Other requirements are listed .  

Our beautiful laminated ( Thank you Mrs. LaMagna!) place mats and Valentine cards are ready to be delivered to a Catholic Charities Senior Center in Franklin Square on MONDAY,FEB. 11.  I will be meeting the director there between 3:15 and 3:30 . Unfortunately the seniors will have already gone home but the Director will bring photo release forms for any parents to fill out and pictures will be taken. Please think about stopping by with your child and joining me in the presentation. I would really appreciate having some of the "artists" with me. We can all be proud of our fourth graders who worked so hard on this worthy service project which coincided with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s  idea of a service day as well as Catholic Schools Week. 

Directions will be posted ASAP. 



Field Trip : We will be traveling to the Whaling Museum in  Cold Spring Harbor on March 8! THANK YOU to our 4 parents who have offered to accompany us!
