The incredible PTA Carnival is taking place this Friday, May 24th! Our PTA has worked very hard to arrange a fun-filled day for all of our students. The schedule is attached. Please note: If family members are interested in viewing this event, they must remain outside of the gates. Students will attend the carnival in their socks, as many of the rides require NO SHOES. Please make sure your child brings an extra pair.

Does you child take the school bus? NYC has designed an app that allows families to track their child’s school bus as it travels to and from school. What does this look like? Let’s say you’re waiting at your child’s bus stop, and it’s 10 minutes past the time they usually arrive. Instead of wondering where they are, you can simply check the app for their real-time location.
