Selective Prep Test Classes Begin This Saturday through December 19th 

There are a number of classes that will be used this fall for Saturday Classes from 9AM to 4PM. They are listed below. The teachers will need to use your white board and may move furniture to a more "traditional" set up (however they should move everything back). Please leave markers/erasers out in your classrooms. If you have any problems with your room, please let Rachel Gemo know. Not all rooms will be used this Saturday, but all will probably be used beginning in a few weeks. 

These are the rooms that will be used: 225, 321, 323, 325, 327, 329, 331, 335, 337, 316, 319B, 319C


Preschool and Elementary School Tours Begin This Week - Here is what to know...

CLICK HERE for the preschool and elementary school tour schedule for this school year.  Please note that we have changed the day and time to Thursday mornings at 8:30 am (no one is at mass this day).  Preschool tours will begin in the PS lobby.  Elementary tours will begin at the 3920 entrance in Phil's office. When a tour comes to your room, just say hello and smile if you are in the middle of something. If students are doing group work or independent work and you have a free moment, please feel free to welcome them to your room. This is a good practice for our classroom ambassadors to welcome people to their room. I'll be giving directions for this in a few weeks.
