Dear Oswegatchie School Community,
First and foremost, I want say a giant Thank You for a Another Spectacular Teacher Appreciation Week. I want to thank our OSO, OSO President Monica Goldstein, our Hospitality Committee and all OSO Members who made this possible. I also want to thank all of the parents who contributed food and gifts, etc. to Teacher Appreciation week.
We concluded our Jump Rope For Heart Campaign this week. We broke last year’s record of $13,600. We raised have raised over $14,000 this year so far. What a great job to students and parents. Thank you for supporting this worthy cause. Students were able to participate in many heart healthy activities while raising the money. We held a Whole School Jump Rope Activity out on the playground on Wednesday for students who participated. Students had a great time and Ms. Brett even dressed in the dog costume for them. Again, a special thanks to Mattie Brett and Nikki Cioci for organizing this event.
Student Inventors, Isabel Henry (Grade 2), Marley Rice(Kindergarten) and Skylar Neidig (grade 5) represented Oswegatchie at the Connecticut Invention Convention at Gampel Pavilion last Saturday. It was a great experience for them. Both Marley and Skylar received the Recognized Inventor award for their inventions Congratulations to Isabel, Marley & Skylar. Great Job!
As we begin to prepare for next year, we are beginning the process of class placement for next year. Placing your child and considering the make-up of each classroom is an intricate process that we take very seriously. Readiness and ability levels, social and emotional traits, and your child's likely interaction within the group are significant considerations. Your child’s current educator(s), our counselors, support professionals, and Student Assistance Team (if applicable) play the primary role in this process as they possess a great deal of information about each child.
I recognize that as your child’s first and most important teacher, your contribution to this process is helpful in making the decision for your child’s placement. Should you feel the need, I invite you to communicate any information about your child that will assist us with this decision by using the form posted on our website. As a practice of Oswegatchie School, we do not honor requests for specific placements. However, please share with us the type of learning environment in which you know your child will thrive and inform us of your child’s needs and any concerns you may have
have for next year.
I’d like to remind you that we will be holding our annual Talent Show on next Friday, May 13th .
