Welcome Back! I trust that the holiday season was peaceful and relaxing for you and your families. As we turn the page on this New Year, we look forward to the next few months with great anticipation. The pace at each grade level is accelerating and the students are stepping up to meet new challenges.
Our Character Education program is in full swing. During the month of January, our students and staff are concentrating on activities that support the Pillar of Fairness. In February, our focus will be on the Pillar of Respect. “Color Days” are January 10 (orange) for Fairness and February 7 (yellow) for Respect.
Our One School, One Book event provides the opportunity for us to share a unique reading experience as a school community. Sections of the book are assigned each evening for family reading. We have a short review each morning in our assembly. This year we are reading Beverly Cleary’s The Mouse and the Motorcycle. This program has been very well-received in the past. Librarian/Media Specialist Mrs. Liberato, Librarian’s Assistant Mrs. Hebert, and Teacher’s Assistant Mrs. Capoano organized the event with support from our Washington School PTA.
