A special "thank you" to all of our Volunteers!
During our last month of school; June will still present a number of special events that students and parents will be able to enjoy. Since we still have to stay at home while learning, our staff and students have put together some important videos that will be presented on our virtual network. On June 2nd there will be an Art Show Presentation for Grades K-3 as well as Grades 4-6. The presentations display all the beautiful artwork the students worked on throughout the school year; kudos to our students as well as our wonderful Art Teacher: Mrs. Mecca. We will also have a Flag Day Presentation on June 12th, thanks to our Music Teacher: Mr. Raquet, as well as our students.
We will post our 6th Grade Transition Video , also on June 12th at 12:00pm in honoring our graduates as they move on to the Junior/Senior High School next year.
The P.T.A. 6th Grade Cavalcade will begin at 12:30pm, please look for more information on this event. Finally, a Kindergarten Virtual Graduation Video will be posted on June 16th, to celebrate our Kindergarten Students moving up to 1st Grade.
I would like to thank everyone for their on-going support of our school programs and inititatives., especially in parental and teacher efforts in helping to make our Virtual Learning Program work. When we work together as a team, it is our children who reap the educational benefits and grow both academically and socially from these efforts, even in the most difficult of times.
Our students have worked especially hard this year and are ready to spend time with their families and friends for a well-earned summer vacation time. On behalf of the staff and administration at the Gavlak Elementary School, please have a safe and healthy summer vacation.
