The past few weeks have been busy ones in our school! On November 17th, students participated in an Anti-Bullying Assembly hosted by JLine Dance Crew. The assembly focused on respect for yourself and others, being a responsible citizen, anti-bullying and setting goals for yourself. The members of the dance crew shared their own stories of being bullied, having learning disabilities and what they did to get help when they were being bullied. These powerful stories and messages were well received by our students. Ask your student about this educational assembly.
Thank you to Joe Cortale, from Flyod Memorial Library for setting up an author visit by Joyce Raimondo for Intermediate 2. The students were excited to have the opportunity to speak to her and ask her questions about her career as a writer of children's books. We look forward to having her visit again soon!
Our Thanksgiving Feast was a fantastic hit! There were many former students, parents and employees of Oysterponds School present to share a meal with our school family. Thank you to the PTA and Peconic Landing for helping to organize this ongoing school tradition.
I cannot believe that we are into our Second Trimester already! If you have not made a conference date to speak to your child's teacher, please phone the school. Ongoing communication and collaboration between family and school is an important part of your child's education.
December is upon us! Don't forget to send in money for your child to shop at the PTA Holiday Shop on Monday, December 5, 2016. Have a great week!
