  • A Letter from the Principal
    DEAR PARENTS/GUARDIANS,
     
     
     

    Dear Parents,

     

    WELCOME BACK!!!!

     

    We hope you had a wonderful summer!

     

    Our teachers and entire staff worked extremely hard to ensure a smooth opening of school. Superintendent Dr. Quezada, Board of Trustee President Rev. Lopez, and Deputy Superintendent Dr. Coddett all welcomed our school community in our gymnasium on opening day.  It was a great way to start the school year.

     

    As we begin the school year, we will continue to help students “Take Ownership of the Behavior and Learning.”  Academic success is linked to reading ability.  That’s why we encourage all of our students to use Reading Plus for Grades 2-6 and Teach My Monster  to Read or Starfall for Grades PreK-Grade 2 and to read 30-45 minutes daily.  The more reading effort, the better the academic success of all children.

     

    Our PTA Track Team is up and running again this fall.  Check with our PTA Executive Board Member Ms. Benitez or Ms. Hernandez for the exact times and dates for practice.  Track meets begin in late September/early October.

     

    Our PTA is also sponsoring a free event that will be fun for the entire family.  Danone (makers of Dannon Yogurt) is hosting the International World Cup of Soccer for Kids at Red Bulls Arena in Newark, NJ on Sunday, September 24. Danone is providing free transportation and tickets to the exciting event.  Ms. Rojas and Ms. Gonzalez are coordinating the event.  Buses will be leaving our parking lot at 11:30.  Please check with them or myself for further details.

     

    Please feel free to contact me at ebeglane@yonkerspublicschools.org or 914 376 8315.

     

    We look forward to a safe and productive academic year!

     

    Dr. B 

     
    Please let me know if I can be of assistance.
