Our first grade is starting their Bronx Zoo program. Starting next week, they will be going to the zoo on Tuesdays to study specific animals. The focus is all about internal and external traits and on getting an in-depth understanding of living vs. non-living things.
Our second grade is studying geography and specifically, New York. They will be taking trips and touring places to get a thorough understanding of their environment. At the end of the month, they will be going to Hostos Community College to see a New York Jazz concert!
Trips are all educational and part of the learning experience. Every trip requires a permission slip. Please check your child's folder each day and send them back in a timely fashion. Children can only attend trips when we have signed permission slips.
Thursday, 10/24 we will celebrate all our October birthdays, our classroom parents will reach out to you to organize classroom parties! AND... Don't forget our Family Fun Halloween Party on 10/31... We will send out information with specific details about this (and all) upcoming events!
So many of you have already spent time volunteering and helping us out in the office, in the cafeteria and in classes... We can't thank you enough! It is so wonderful to be part of our PTA and become active partners in our school community! The next PTA meeting is Tuesday, 10/7 at 6:00pm. If you ever have a question or concern, please don't hesitate to talk to me.
Thank you again for your wonderful children!
