Principal’s Message

Dear Siwanoy,

Another exciting week in the books. We are still waiting for the weather to match the date! This week our 5th grade completed the State Science exam, 4th graders went on an awesome gymnastics trip, incoming kindergarten students got to show off their skills during their screening process, and 2nd grade went to the Aquarium! 

The coming weeks will continue to be just as busy; so be on the lookout for communication from me or your child's teacher. Next week the highlight will be STEAM day! 

Lastly, please be sure to not block the driveways of houses when picking up or dropping off your children at school. This is a major safety concern. Pelham Manor police have been notified and they will give out tickets moving forward. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

We are looking forward to another great week ahead!
