Hello Families,

 

Field day at Alcott was a huge success! The children had such a great time running, jumping and getting involved in all the wonderful activities our O.T. Department set up for them.  The boys and girls especially loved receiving their medals and eating yummy icy treats at the end of a hot sunny day.

It is hard to believe that we are approaching the end of our school year.  It was a year unlike any other!  We are so very proud of our resilient little scholars and so honored to have been a part of their learning experience.  We want to thank you all for your continued and unwavering support.  This school year was not easy, but together we made it a success.  A reminder that our class Moving-Up Ceremony is on Wednesday, June 23rd at 11:30 am in the front playground.  An invitation went home with your child last week.  Our last day of school is Friday, June 25th.  In the next few weeks we will continue to have fun as a class, and we will continue to explore all things pertaining to the ocean as well as the beach.  We look forward to a smooth end of the school year and we wish everyone a happy and healthy summer!

 

Warmest regards,

Mrs. Rocafuerte, Mrs. Cinquina and Ms.Guglielmi
