October is off to a wonderful start as our students and teachers had their first five-day week of learning together (hard to believe but true!). As we head into the fall season I wanted to let everyone know that members of the NY Cosmos will be attending our lunch periods on Monday to sign autographs and play some soccer juggling games with our students. They are also going to talk to students about what it takes to be successful professional athletes! This includes working hard, studying hard, and avoiding drugs and alcohol. Hopefully this event will generate excitement for our upcoming PTSO sponsored Cosmos Soccer Game on Sunday, October 11 at 5pm!
I want to thank our Teacher Leaders Ryan O’Hara, Madel Soriano, and Amy DiMeola for taking time on Monday night to present our academic program to the PTSO. It was a great meeting full of important information about our school! If you missed the meeting and are interested, the presentation is available on the middle school website at Northshoreschools.org.
Next week begins with our 6th grade Parent Greenkill meeting on Monday night at 7pm in the middle school cafeteria. All sixth grade parents are encouraged to attend. In addition, Photo day is coming on Thursday and Friday of this week. Please ask your children which day their advisory will be photographed and keep your eyes open for an important photo day email early next week from Mrs. Green.
Finally, the Coalition For A Drug Free North Shore is pleased to invite all 8th grade parents and students to an evening Drug Awareness and Prevention Program, presented by Detective Mike Zotto. This very powerful program is appropriate for all parents, as well as students in grades 8-12.
