Summer Programming

It’s not too soon to think about summer programming. We have some local options for middle schoolers that are right here in the neighborhood.

Here is the link for the Super Summer Program at Dowling for middle/high school students and also the link for GISE/GEMS program at Sanford this summer.


No School

Spring Break

Lost and Found

Missing a coat, hoodie, water bottle?

Have your students check the lost and found table in the cafeteria-it is overflowing.



Don’t forget to bring in those boxtops that are in your kitchen drawer. They do have an expiration date, so have your student drop them in the main office frequently- it all adds up!


Have a great night,


Mara Bernick
