Picture Day is Tuesday, Oct 3! Send in Your Order Forms this Week.


PICTURE DAY for our school will be held on Tuesday, October 3, 2017. An overview of the packages and pricing was sent home in your children’s folders on Monday. Take a look and make your selection!

Please return your order envelope to your child’s teacher by this Friday, September 29. You can pay by check, money order, or cash (exact amount, no change will be given), OR online, with a credit card (make sure to write confirmation code on package selection slip). Please make your checks/money order payable to IRVIN SIMON PHOTOGRAPHERS.

If you are not satisfied with your child’s pictures or if your child is absent from school on that day, there will be a Retake Day on Monday, December 4.

Reminder: Tomorrow

Meet the TeacherMeet your child’s teacher and learn more about this year’s curriculum by attending one of the class information sessions Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 13!

Session 1: 4:30-5:30 pm
Session 2: 6:00-7:00 pm

Note that this is a general information session and teachers will not have the opportunity to meet with you individually about your child during this time. As always, you may send a note to your child’s teacher at any time if you wish to connect on a specific issue.

Little ones may get antsy during the presentation, so we encourage you to leave young children at home to get the most out of this event.


Welcome Back!


As the 2017-2018 school year truly kicks off, we hope your children are getting off to a great start!

A few important things to make sure you’ve checked off your list:

  • School Lunch is now free for everyone! However, to help keep this and other programs funded, our children still need you to complete and return the lunch application form (or fill it in online at nyc.applyforlunch.com).
  • If you haven’t already, please fill out and return your child(ren)’s Blue Cards as soon as possible. It’s critical that the school has the most up to date information on file.
  • Make sure you’ve reviewed and returned the tear-off portions of all applicable permission forms sent home on the first day of school (neighborhood walks, physical education, field trip policy, dismissal policy, religious instruction, etc.)
  • Please complete and return your contact information for inclusion in your child’s class list as soon as possible. This list will help you if you need to contact other students and their families regarding homework or other questions, and provides your Class Parents with a means of reaching you regarding class news, events, or funds collections. The list will ONLY be shared with families in your child’s class and the teacher.

Best wishes to all for a great year ahead! Stay tuned for news on our first Parents’ Association meeting.
