I'm glad that spring has finally arrived and we will be able to experience more outside time and some warm and sunny weather.
Our school will be closed during the annual school Spring Break from April 2nd through April 9th and I hope that your family experiences some rest and relaxation during this time. Importantly, if you plan to travel out of state during the break, please read the attached Nurse's Newsletter for guidance on your child's return to school. Spring Nurse Newsletter
April 19th will end the 3rd Marking Period for the school year. Student grades will then be posted on the Genesis Parent Portal the following week. It is important that you take the opportunity to review the academic progress of your child by logging on when grades are made available.
Students will be involved in "Earth Day" activities on April 22nd in celebration of this holiday which highlights the importance of recycling and taking care of the environment. These activities include: plantings on the school grounds, collecting gently used clothing (bagged) to be repurposed and donated to the VFW, Mr. Ivanicki's annual collection of aluminum pop tops to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House to help raise funds for the families of children that are hospitalized, and the creation of planters by our students made from recycled plastic bottles. This is Gavlak's part in helping out our environment!
Finally, please be aware that Free Lunch is available to any student who wants to take lunch home. This will be in place until the end of the school-year in June.
As always, I wish all of our families a safe and happy holiday spring season.
Sincerely, Nancy J. Giambrone, Principal, Frank W. Gavlak School
