Spring Photo Day is TUESDAY!

Spring Photo Day is TUESDAY! Some facts about the day:

  • We still need volunteers to help keep the process running smoothly.  You can volunteer when your child is getting their photos taken, so check to see when your child's class is coming and sign up to help! 
  • If you want to take sibling photos, please arrive before school starting at 7:45
  • Students will be photographed individually, no class photos in Spring
  • Photos will be available online for purchase, no upfront obligation.
  • Candid photos taken in three ways: full frame, 3/4 and up close; intended to be fun! 

Sign up to volunteer here!

SLT members are required to attend monthly SLT meetings, 2nd or 3rd Wednesday from 2:50-4:30 in the afternoon. PDF of Board positions attached. 
  • The SLT (school leadership team) is a school steering committee that identifies and discusses issues such as curriculum, school procedures and policies, and future growth. It comprises the principal, the PTA president, a UFT representative, elected parents and teachers. The SLT meets monthly in working sessions that are open for observation. The SLT also oversees the Parent Involvement Committees that concentrate on curriculum enhancement:  Afterschool, Arts, Book Club, Library, Math, Science and Technology, and Social Studies. These committees are open to all parents/guardians.
Descriptions of the open PTA board positions are attached to this message.
