Dear Greenvale Family,

We have completed another week of learning here at Greenvale.  The weather has been strange but we have been able to get through it.  We will continue to try to get the children outside for recess as much as possible. Parents please be sure that the children are dressed appropriately.  The children continue to take their coats and jackets off during recess.  We ask that you write their names on the inside of their items with a sharpie.  Please check the Lost and Found closet in the vestibule from time to time for missing items. 

Remember that Friday, February 15, 2019 is early dismissal 11:30 AM. 

Enjoy your weekend!

Dear Greenvale Family,

We are experiencing some very cold weather.  Please remind the children to wear their coats, gloves, scarves, and hats to school.  There are quite a few students who are getting off the school buses in the morning carrying the items in their hands or placed in their backpacks.  Let’s work together to make sure that our students are safe.  We will continue to remind them in the afternoon to wear these items home. 

The Chinese Pattern Dancers Assembly for the third-grade students was amazing.  Thank you to the GV PTA for sponsoring such a great event.  The students enjoyed the dancers.  The students also enjoyed the play “Charlotte’s Web”, another event sponsored by the GV PTA.  As you know, the whole school read Charlotte’s Web last year for One Book One School.  The children were able to see the characters come to life in the play.  I wonder what book we read this year for One Book One School? Be on the lookout. That information should be coming out soon.  

Enjoy your weekend!

Dear Greenvale Family,

Thank you for your support with morning drop-off.  It has gotten much better.  Please be sure to drop the children off at the crossing guard and move forward.  If you wish to walk the students to the building, please pull ahead past the crossing guard to park. The morning drop-off is a no parking zone. 

Please do not make U-turns in front of the school.  This is a dangerous practice, and we want our students to be safe.  There is a lot of activity on Gabriel Rescigno Drive during arrival and dismissal, and it only takes a second for an accident to happen.  Let’s keep Greenvale School Safe!

Enjoy your weekend!

Maker Space News

Class 4-Leonard did a maker space-maze creation. Each group had to work together using the materials (box, straws and tape) to create a maze that included dead ends, walls to block the marble, and an ending spot. The students designed and constructed their mazes. Then they reflected on their experience by discussing what was successful about their maze. They also discussed and wrote what they learned.


Please mark your calendars for our next Waverly PTA meeting!

When: Thursday, January 31, 2019 @ 7:30PM

Where: Waverly School Cafeteria

The focus of this meeting will be to address the topic of Bullying

We will have a guest speaker, Mr. Joseph Mercora, who has kindly agreed to facilitate this discussion.

Mr. Mercora has worked in education for 24 years. He has served as both teacher and principal at the elementary, middle school and high school levels. He is currently the principal of Upper Nyack Elementary School in Rockland County.

In addition to his current role, he also serves as Nyack School District’s Dignity for All Students Act coordinator. As part of this role, he trains educators and parents through anti-bullying programs.

He has successfully led anti-bullying initiatives throughout his career. He believes that, equipped with the proper information, parents, students and schools can together successfully address and defeat bullying in their schools and in their communities.

Focus of presentation:

  • Raise awareness of the different types of bullying that children can face beginning at the elementary school level and continuing through middle school to high school.
  • Provide information and techniques for families to use to recognize and address bullying as well as critical prevention techniques
  • Discuss the dangers of cyber bullying and how it too can be addressed and defeated
  • Open Forum for Q&A

Please spread the word! ALL PTA’s are welcome to attend!

Let’s work together to raise awareness and put an end to bullying!
