Be Yourself, Be Unique!

Collect Your Can Tops for our April Good Deed!

See below for more information!

April 1st, 2019

Dear Families,

We want to celebrate individuality in our students this month, and our word UNIQUE, reflects that sentiment.

Check out the activities we have planned!

  • Tuesday, April 9th, we will light it up BLUE. Please have your child wear blue. SEPTA is collecting a donation of $1 for your child’s participation. (Any donations can be placed in an envelope marked “SEPTA.”)
  • Friday, April 12th is Crazy Hair Day. Get creative and show off a little! We’ll share our craziest hair styles for this ½ day.
  • Friday, April 26th will be Good Deed Day. (Don’t forget your child’s Waverly shirt!) This month we will collect can tops to donate to the Ronald McDonald House. As you may know, The Ronald McDonald House relies solely on donations. RMH will turn the caps into cash to support their programs, so get collecting today!  https://rmh-ghv.org/

Kindergarten Spring Concert- Wed., April 10th

Classes will perform at the following times:

9:30 a.m. Dragonetti, Tine/O’Reilly, Mastocciolo, Batz, Tortorella, Cavalli (K students)

10:30 a.m. Engborg, Falcone, Torres, Ullrich, Soares, Zanzano and Myers (K students)

As you are planning, please make note of the following:

  • All parents will enter from the rear parking lot off of Bellew Avenue (near the gym).
  • As always, parking is extremely limited. Please consider walking or carpooling, if possible.
  • If your child is singing during the first session, please be sure to leave promptly to allow someone a parking spot for the second session.
  • This is a regular school day for us!

On the concert day, children can wear festive attire of any color with comfortable, flat shoes (sneakers if they have P.E. that day). Please do not include hats or large hair accessories.

Eastchester Schools Kindergarten Registration for 2019-2020 School Year

Kindergarten Registration is open for children who turn five years of age on or before December 1, 2019. Tell your neighbors and friends!

Registering now guarantees that families will be able to attend Kindergarten Screening and Orientation. Many of their questions will be answered about life for a kindergarten student at Waverly and children will get a chance to play in our classrooms.

Kindly click on the link below. https://district.eastchesterschools.org/m2/mod/dataform/view.php?d=1&view=1&eids=80&ret=9

Once you have completed the application and all registration requirements, the registrar will review the application. Upon approval of the application, you will receive an email to schedule a 10 minute appointment with the Registrar to provide the original version of the supporting documents. Please register today!

Many congratulations to Mrs. Samantha Larrea who received a grant from the Teacher Center of Central Westchester for a document camera. We are excited to have this tool in our art classroom!

We are so happy to be welcoming spring! As we all know, spring can bring some erratic weather patterns, so please be sure to have your child wear a jacket to school every day. We try to get students outside each day to play!
