Dear Parents:

We are looking for volunteers for each class to be a class parent. It does not entail a large time commitment. However, the class parents' time and effort are greatly appreciated by the children, teachers and other parents and improves the school community for all.  The role of the class parent does not extend to issues relating to teaching or issues with individual students.

Class Parent Responsibilities:

Each class has at least one class parent. The class parent serves as a liaison between the classroom teachers and the parents. The responsibilities include:

  1. Assisting your grade-level teacher. This may include volunteering for or finding volunteers for field trips, planning and arranging school social events (i.e. year-end picnic, etc.)
  2. Supporting school events, such as the Family BBQ, Purim Baskets, etc. by volunteering or finding volunteers from your class.
  3. Assist with implementing teacher's token of appreciation and teacher's gift (as appropriate).

If you would like to become a class parent, please send an email or call the school office at 845-634-0951.

Thank you for your support of our children.

Dear Parents,

As you are aware, our students took the Terra Nova tests in June. Terra Nova's are standardized tests which are given to students all across the country.  We are extremely proud to advise you that not only did our students obtain scores one year above their grade level, but in many cases we had students whose scores are 3 to 4 grade levels above.

For example:

The Grade Mean Equivalent for Third Grade:

Reading: 7.9 (7th grade 9th month)
Language Arts: 6.6
Math:  6.2
Science: 5.7
Social Studies:  5.5

The Grade Mean Equivalent for Fifth Grade:

Reading: 10.6
Language Arts: 9.4
Math: 11.0
Science: 12.8
Social Studies: 10.4

The Grade Mean Equivalent for Seventh Grade:

Reading: 12.9
Language Arts: 12.9
Math: 11.0
Science: 12.0
Social Studies 117

As a private school, it is our goal to provide outstanding education.  The caliber of our teaching staff together with the implementation of innovative new educational programs and technology have helped our students achieve success; and we feel that the Terra Nova scores confirm this. We are very proud of their accomplishments. The actual Terra Nova tests will be sent to you under separate cover.

The last day of school for ALL GRADES (Toddler - 8th Grade) is Wednesday, June 20, 2012.

Dismissal for CECC - Toddler, Nursery and Pre K - is at 1:15 pm sharp.

Dismissal for Kindergarten - 8th Grade is at 1:30 pm sharp. Busses will transport the children at 1:30 pm.

On Wednesday night, February 29,  at 7:30 p.m. we will be assembling the Mishloach Manot baskets.  If you haven’t already done so and are interested in participating in this greeting, it is imperative that you contact Mrs. Vaspol via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by this Tuesday, February 28 advising her how you would like to have your family listed.  Please submit $36.00 for these baskets as soon as possible.

We also need volunteers to help with the assembling of these baskets.   Please come join us in this endeavor.

NOTE: Students will be excused from doing homework if their parent volunteers to help assemble the Mishloach Manot baskets.

Optional Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Wednesday evening, February 15, 2012, from 6:30 pm. Appointments will only be arranged upon request by either the teacher or the parent. Conferences can either be in person or by phone. Should you wish to meet with a particular child's teacher, please contact the office by Tuesday, February 14, 2012.
