Pizza Day
This Friday, February 16 is Pizza Day. Please remember to send cash for pizza and snacks or bagged lunch. There is no other food service on Pizza Days. 
Charge It!
Please remind students to fully shut down and charge their school laptops each evening to ensure they are ready for class the next day. A fully charged battery should last through the day, which means that students do not have to carry chargers and cords -- they are easily lost and expensive to replace. 
Parent-Child Book Club
Please join us for our next session, scheduled for Wednesday, March 14 at 6:30 at the Briarcliff Manor Public Library. We will discuss The Best Man by Richard Peck. Please RSVP by March 13 so we can order pizza and snacks.
Book summary: Archer has spent five lively years of grade school in search of grown up role models. Three of his best are his grandpa, the great architect; his dad, a great vintage car customizer; and his Uncle Paul, who is just plain great. He wants to be like these three men. Then Archer meets a fourth role model, Mr. McLeod, the first male teacher in the history of his school. But now Archer is headed to middle school and change. Archer wonders how much change has to happen before his voice does. . . 
Transition to Grade 6
An orientation meeting for 5th grade parents will be held on March 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the MS Theater.
Transition to Grade 9
There will be an orientation to our high school program for parents of current 8th graders on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m. (Parents should have received an invitation from Mrs. French in the mail.) In addition, students will work with high school counselors on orientation activities during the school day on January 25 and February 1. One session will focus on requirements and course selections, and the other session will include a tour and discussion of high school life. Mrs. Pierson will also work with students in the coming weeks to finalize course selection forms and ensure that students are ready for the next step.
