    Dear Parents and Guardians,

     

    Happy New Year! I hope your holidays and winter break were wonderful!

    I am so proud of our students and staff and their generosity and caring. For our annual food drive in December, we collected 835 non-perishable food items to donate to the local food pantry. On the last day of school before the holidays, we did a movie and pajama day and requested a suggested donation of $2 per student, with the money raised to go towards Operation Safe Home. White Rock School raised $786 that day to be donated to this worthy cause!

    Our 4th and 5th grade bands and choruses performed fantastically at their holiday concerts this year. Students and staff enjoyed participating in the annual Just Dance competition organized by our physical education teacher, Mr. Reid. We had great holiday celebrations in our classrooms with our PTA-sponsored holiday parties. Thanks to all the parent volunteers who helped out by donating food or running the parties in our classrooms.

    Looking ahead, here are some upcoming events and activities over the next month:

    January 8 - 1:20 dismissal for Professional Development
    January 18 - 3rd Grade Ellis Island simulation
    January 21 - School closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day
    January 31 - Respect Assembly
    February 4 - Mid-point of 2nd trimester
    February 8 - Dr. Harte dental program for 3rd grade
    February 12 - 1:20 dismissal for Professional Development
    February 15-18 School Closed for Presidents' Weekend

    Have a great month!

    4th Grade Classes competed for the Battle of the Books title in February. All students participated by reading up to 10 novels and competing at the class level to determine the team that would represent them against their grade level. Classroom teams competed with Mrs. Grisi's class wining the competition overall. It was a close battle which came down to a tie breaker question! Congratuations to all our participating teams!

    Some of our White Rock students had their stories selected and performed by The Story Pirates at a recent assembly. These students are invited to visit the Story Pirates Theater in New York City and have their plays performed live on their stage. Congratulations to the students shown below!
