Dear Neighborhood School Families,
At long last, spring has sprung! I hope that you got outside to enjoy the beautiful weather this past weekend. Many of our classes will celebrate Earth Day after Sing on Wednesday. The fifth grade girls in the Girls Project have organized activities including a puppet show, ball throwing into recycled bottles, planting seeds, information about endangered animals and more. We will also have a visit from Lower East Side Ecology Center to demonstrate worm composting, a visit from the the Billion Oyster Project and environmental activist junior high school students from the Island School, An Edible Bug Booth, composting worms brought to us by the Lower East Side Ecology, live chickens and a chance to learn more about local environmental issues from United for Action and All Our Energy. Please visit, if you can! We will be on the 4th Street side yard until 10:40am.
Thank you to all parents who organized and attended our Spring Fling Saturday night; I haven’t had so much fun in a long time! I spoke to 3 new parents (who have incoming 3rd graders) and they were overwhelmed by the warmth and openness of our community. I, too was struck by the generosity (in so many ways) of our parents. There was such a positive feeling in the room. The event is over but you still have a chance to support our school by bidding on the online auction. There are still many great items available and a chance to score some great deals on items that have no/very low bids! Check it out: http://tnsny.org/auction.
