Frank W. Gavlak School is a grade 3-6 building. It currently has an approximate enrollment of 352 students with four grade threes, four grade fours, four grade fives and four grade sixes. Various programs are offered to meet the needs of students. Among them are: basic skills remediation, speech, special education services, bi-lingual/ESL education, gifted and talented and guidance services.
Spring has finally arrived and we are all looking forward to the warmer weather that will finally come with it. On that positive note, I would like to share some of the exciting, up-coming activities that May will bring as we wind down the 2021-22 school-year.
Students, starting on May 2nd will be allowed to wear their uniform shorts if desired, in keeping everyone comfortable while in school. Teacher Appreciation Week will take place during the week of May 2nd-6th; a time when we honor our teaching staff with special thank you activities.
We will continue to facilitate the mandated State Testing Program with the following schedule: Grade 3 & 4 on May 4th & 5th and Grades 5 and 6 on May 9th , 10th, 11th, 12th & 13th. As always, please support your child by making sure they get a good night's sleep and a good breakfast on the testing days.
May 6th we will be celebrating Lunch Heroes Day in thanking our Lunch Aides for their service to our children, and honoring Mrs. Coldon on School Nurse's Day (May 11th) for her good care of the students. Let's not forget our Grade 6 Transition Pictures to be taken on May 17th as we recognize our 6th Grade Students for their achievements.
Our Elementary P.T.A will sponsor a Book Fair on May 23rd and May 24th in the Gavlak Media Center; students in Grades 3-6 will have the opportunity to purchase books they would like to read.
We must never forget our Veterans, who we will honor on Memorial Day, May 30th through our Student Chorus and Student Council participating in the Memorial Day Parade. Finally, there will be a special District Chamber Music Night on May 31st at 6:30 pm at Wallington High School with our 5th and 6th Grade students participating.
As always, please feel free to contact my office with any questions that you may have.
Sincerely, Nancy Giambrone, Principal
