Daily Announcements

We are pleased to announce the start of our afterschool sports and arts enrichment program that will allow our students to take part in various activities throughout the year.  It is our goal that students in our afterschool program will discover the lifelong enjoyment and wonder inherent in arts, physical activity, and other creative expression.  Clubs will meet either on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays OR Thursdays and Fridays only, from 2:30pm-3:30pm.  Parents will receive a notice regarding which club their child will participate in based on the permission slips that were returned last week.   
 Clubs begin on Wed., Oct. 8 OR on Thurs., Oct. 9; and end on May 8, 2015. Clubs are open to all students in grades 2-5. Please note that students will have the opportunity to switch clubs in December and again in February (with the exception of Musical Theater, which will remain together to prepare for performances, and which will continue meeting through May 22, 2015).
Here is a list of the clubs for our first cycle which will continue from October 8th or 9th – November 21st.  If you have any questions please contact Assistant Principal Rebecca Odessey, 718-294-1134.
