Principal's Message: February 24, 2017
Congratulations to Middletown Village's Support Staff Person of the Year - Mrs. Maria DeSocio! Mrs. DeSocio has a long work history at Middletown Village School, and has made a difference in the lives of so many students! We are honored to have Mrs. DeSocio represent the Support Staff at Village!
Are you ready to celebrate reading this coming week? We are so excited for our week long celebration of reading! This year we have changed it up a little bit so be sure to check the virtual backpack for each day's activities and attire. One thing that has not changed is we will be wearing our PJs to school on Read Across America Day, Thursday, March 2nd, and collecting a new pair of pajamas to be donated to the Pajama Program.
A Village alumni, now in HS, will be here to collect the pajamas and deliver them to the collection site as part of her leadership service. We are so proud that our alumni students are involved in worthwhile projects and keep their connection to Village! As I always say - Once a Griffin, Always a Griffin!
This year, I hope our collection is overflowing because nothing beats a warm pair of pjs and a good book!
I am also so proud to let you know that one of our Village parents is a published author! Ms. Fran Didamo, mom to a second grader, is coming to read her book to the students and talk about the road from writer to published author! How lucky are we? Her book,
Missy Pickles is a Tomboy
is available on Amazon if you are looking to add to your home library, or make a classroom donation.
I appreciate your assistance in getting the word out for our upcoming Kindergarten Registration Week, March 6th - 10th for children age 5 by October 1, 2017. Please note the times and locations for evening registrations in the event you are unable to register directly at Middletown Village School during the day. I cannot stress how important it is in determining the number of Kindergarten classes and staffing needed for next year, to have all eligible students register during this week. Please share registration information with your neighbors as well as your child's preschool.
Please be sure to check the Google calendar below for upcoming school events and activities.
