UPDATE on class trip -- There seems to be a conflict with the date (4/24) and an activity scheduled by the home school. I am trying to confirm the activity and then a new trip date. I was at a math workshop on Tuesday & Mrs. Kiely is at a workshop today. Hopefully tomorrow (Thurs) I will be able to confirm a date. Thanks for your patience.

Wed., March 28 Wishing all of you a very blessed Easter!
Tues., March 27
We are planning a class trip to the Liberty Science Center for the 1^{st} & 2^{nd} graders on Tuesday, April 24. The cost will be approximately $30.
Parents, depending on room on the bus, will be allowed to go at the same cost. Parents (especially new parents to the school) must complete the ADNY background check & safer spaces paperwork (on line). The paperwork must be complete least one week prior to the trip in order to be considered as a chaperone. Contact the main office if you need additional details.
Right after the break you will receive the official trip notification/ permission slip with exact cost. Anticipate the money and permission slip will be due no later than Monday, April 16. You may also want to keep this date in mind when filling out the lunch order because there are no refunds.
