    Dear Families,

    It's hard to believe we are entering week 13 of Distance Learning. A friendly reminder to stop by Hostos between 9am - 12pm to pick up your child's classroom supplies and materials as well as Summer Learning Packet on Thursday, June 11th. Your daughter or son will also be receiving a parting gift from me. You are welcomed to come with your child but please wear your masks.  

    Remember that if your if your child is being serviced by Ms. Nelson, Mrs. Vitale, and Mrs. Kaplan, to be sure to visit their webpages as well for assignments or any reminders or special notices.

    As always, please feel free to reach out to me via ClassTag, or email at marroyo@yonkerspublicschools.org. You can also contact me at my google voice number, 914-440-0662 

    Continue to give it your all these final two weeks! Make me proud and finish the year strong! Sending virtual hugs to all my SUPER 2nd graders. You are loved and missed dearly!




    My name is Melissa Arroyo and I have been teaching for 8 years. This is my second year teaching in the Yonkers Public School District. I am a mother to an amazing, charismatic, and sweet 4-year son. I am a very creative and enthusiastic elementary school teacher. I enjoy writing and painting. When I am not teaching, I appreciate spending time with my family and loved ones.

    In my classroom, I aim for ALL my students to learn best when they feel welcomed, comfortable and safe. 

    "It's the little conversations that build relationships and make an impact on each student" - Robert John Meehan

    I want to end by stating that to the world I may just be a teacher but to your son or daughter, I am a hero and inspiration. With me as their teacher, I will do my very best to help get them to a place where they believe in themselves to give anything a try, make progress, growth and most importantly continue to instill a love for learning :)
