Fresh Air Fund
Are you looking for a wonderful way to provide a service to children in
need? The Fresh Air fund is seeking families to open their hearts and homes
to New York City children this summer. As a volunteer host family with The
Fresh Air Fund, you will help a child enjoy the simple pleasures of a summer
away from hot city streets.

Yearbooks- The 2010 yearbooks are now on sale!! They are $10.00 each.See Wendy Trainer to order yours today!!!

Open Doors-Please be informed that the Open Doors Summer Brochure will be available as of Thursday, May 20th. I will be distributing them to the 4th-8th graders during their lunch period tomorrow (Thursday), and Joanne Champagne will have brochures available to the 3rd graders.

This is the first summer that we are able to offer some programs to the 3rd and 4th graders thanks to a grant from Senator Sanders. Please thank Senator Sanders the next time you see him!

We are very excited to expand to students entering 3rd and 4th grade in the fall 2010 so please spread the word. The classes will fill up fast so make sure your students bring their brochure back the next day in order to have the best chance of getting in to a class of their choice.

Thank you!

After school Tutoring-Next week will be the last week of After School Tutoring. If you are interested in Summer School for your child, please talk to their teacher.
