This week we created lovely snowflakes during art. We colored with purple, light blue & dark blue markers on coffee filters that were placed on white paper plates, then sprayed them with water. The colors “ran” together to form beautiful designs & also stained the paper plates. We hung up the coffee filter snowflakes on the tree in the classroom & the paper plate snowflakes in our pretend center.
Welcome to Miss Faryaal who has joined us on MW mornings from 8:30-10 & Fri from 8:30-11:30. She is presently attending St. Joseph’s College in the Child Study Program. Miss Faryaal will also help out when we need a sub on Friday afternoons. Miss Allie will be joining us on Tuesday afternoons from 12-3 beginning 1/29 & Ms. Joyce is taking over Miss Fabi’s hours on WThF from 12-3. We are so grateful to have such helpful teacher assistants.

January, the 1st month of the new year & also the month of snowstorms. Along with the possibility of snow comes the prospect of closings & delays. While we make every effort to remain open, safety is a factor for all of our families & staff.
Please note that if Sachem School District closes due to inclement weather, we will also be closed. If Sachem has a delayed opening, we will make every effort to open at our usual time. However, extenuating circumstances might require us to be closed for the morning session. Please tune in to WALK radio (FM 97.5) or check our FB page & the Remind App for closing & delay information.
Last call for school pictures. Our photographer will be placing the print order & is hoping to deliver the prints within the next week or 2.

“To laugh often & much; to win the respect of intelligent people & the affection of children…to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
