Happy Grandparent's day and Happy Veteran's Day to those in our community who are lucky enough to be grandparents and brave enough to serve our country.
Today was a very special day here as we had our annual assembly to recognize those special people in our community. The students sang beautifully, the 8th graders who spoke were well prepared and said such kind words, our Keynote speaker, Mr. James Holland gave a wonderful message to all of us on the importance of thanking veterans.
I want to thank Ms. Cronan for preparing the students, Mr. Chiavaroli for creating the video tribute, and the PTO for creating such a welcoming reception.
We ended our day today with an assembly on the life of Don Bosco. What an incredible testament to faith. The 6th graders researched his life and asked many questions at the conclusion of the presentation. 1st through 8th graders were a wonderful audience.
Let's keep selling those Football Raffle tickets! As promised any student who sells all 10 tickets (or more) can dress down from November 13th until Thanksgiving Break. I'd be thrilled to see the entire school dressed down!!! The goal is $50,000. We can do it! I have extended the raffle drawing until November 27th in order to give us more time to sell.
As always, I hope that you all have a safe and restful weekend filled with lots of family time.
Mrs. Julie Marotta
