SIXTEENTH AVENUE SCHOOL
Dear Parents and Students,
Spring has sprung! The weather has been getting warmer and sunnier and the little green shoots are starting to grow. We recently turned our clocks ahead to be able to enjoy an extra hour of daylight. April is one of my favorite months for several reasons, but most of all because we know that summer will be here in the blink of an eye!
Our April calendar is a very busy one! Students will have a short month packed with many events at our school. Be sure you have the revised DATE SHEET listing events for the end of the school year, distributed on March 27th, and also posted on the Parent Portal.
We continue PARCC testing this month for students in grades 3, 4 & 5. This testing will take place in May as well. Please review the testing calendar on the parent portal. Our April PTO meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4th.
Please attend our PTO meetings in the media center on the first Tuesday evening each month! There are lots of PTO events on the calendar in April!
Please be advised the school will be closed on Good Friday and the following week. School is closed April 14 -21, and reopens April 24th.
We posted marking period two Report Cards on March 24th for all students on the Parent Portal. Be sure to contact your child’s teacher(s) if you have any questions. We are sent all students (Preschool – 5) home with paper copies of the REPORT CARDS on this day as well.
Please also check the website www.elmwoodparkschools.org calendar for specific dates and times of other events. I told you we were going to be busy this month. HAPPY SPRING!
