Greetings to the Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of The Pride of School 9-

Well, I do believe that this past snow storm will be our last for awhile....let's keep our fingers crossed!

There are some many exciting things happening here at The Pride. The Teachers, Staff,  Students and their Families are diligently preparing for the upcoming ELA, MAP, Math, DRA, and NYSESLAT assessments (Please review the on-line calendar and monthly one sent home for dates). Our Student of the Month and Awards Assemblies are motivating your child to excel to higher heights academically. Our Pride Safety Patrol Team which consist of students in Grades 3-6 who have been displaying a dedicated and committed spirit to keeping our building safe for all. We are currently planning for our Multicultural Feast and Spirit Day to occur sometime in April....details will be forthcoming. The PTA and The Pride Family are in discussion about our upcoming Talent Show to occur in May. The 6th Grade Staff and Administration are currently preparing for a memorable Moving-Up Ceremony for the students in June. The list goes on and on......stay tuned!

How you can support us with your child here at The Pride is to ensure that they arrive to school on time and everyday,  remain in school for its entirety, make an appointment regularly to meet with their teachers in order to stay abreast to their academics (Parent-Teacher Conference Day is Wednesday, March 25, 2015 starting at 1:00pm), and take an active and productive role as the primary caregiver for them. Our doors are always open to you and we are here to support you in any way. Happy Spring!

Respectfully yours,
Mrs. C. Thiam


We are excited about upcoming April events! Please be sure to post these items on your calendars.
