From the Desk of Mr. Norman...
Dear Parents and Guardians:
As we enter the month of November, I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and say thank you for all of your continued support.
Red Ribbon Week was celebrated the last week of October. We celebrated by wearing clothes that represented the message of making positive choices and by making frequent announcements to remind students of our theme.
The GW community continues to read TheLemonade War as part of our One School, One Book reading initiative. Each day classes are participating in a daily comprehension raffle. Additionally, students have utilized their math skills to partake in special activities as well. We will celebrate the ending of the story during this month.
I am happy to announce we have implemented a new initiative at our school called G.W Learning Series. This new initiative involves aired video recordings of administrators, teachers, parents, students and community members working collaboratively to promote themes relating to our mission statement and core beliefs. This month’s edition will feature the principal and parents learning about self-awareness as it relates to how the brain processes information. For more information on how you can take part in G.W Learning Series please contact the main office at 914-528-2021.
Parent Conferences have been scheduled for Monday, November 7, 2017. This is also a conference day for teachers, which means no school for students. If you are not scheduled to meet with your child’s teacher, please contact him/her. Conferences are one way for parents and teachers to maintain optimal communication and are encouraged.
