Dear Parent/ Guardian,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome your child to fourth grade.  My name is Mr. Curcio and I will be your child's teacher this year.  As we begin the school year in unchartered territories, I am confident that we will be successful if we work together to assure that all academic goals and expectations are met.  

This year will begin with remote instruction from September 8th to October 5th.  Below is important information regarding online learning:

1.  Check the School 21 website daily for continued information relating to remote and hybrid learning.

2.  Visit my personal webpage on the School 21 site for class instruction and assignments.

3.  Go to  the Yonkers district website to learn how to sign onto Microsoft Teams and other websites.

I appreciate your support and efforts during these challenging times.  If you have any questions, please reach out to me at
