From the Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians:
This season is about giving and about being concerned about those less fortunate than ourselves. We can be proud of the various ways our Nanuet School Community is helping others.
In October, the students in seventh grade made Halloween goody bags for the "Little Knights" and delivered them to the Kindergarten students.
In November, in collaboration with The Family Resource Center, students in grades six and seven participated in a Thanksgiving food collection. The food collected was distributed to families within our community.
Once again this year, the entire school, grades 5-8, participated in several events together. For Veterans' Day students created cards for local veterans thanking them for their service. The Middle School students participated in the High School's collection for People to People this year. Similarly, for another wonderful cause, all students wrote Believe letters for Macy's and the Make A Wish Foundation.
The Student Council celebrated the movie Wonder by creating cutouts for each grade level to fill in. Each student was asked to write something according to a theme in the movie. Some of the themes were Helping Out Makes the Holiday Nice and Be a Good Friend to Others in Need. this movie, based upon the NY Times bestseller, which many of the student have read, is emotional and inspiring, which correlated perfectly with our district wide emphasis on kindness and community service.
There are many lessons we as parents and educators pass on to our children. One of the most important things we can do for them is to teach by example. It is good for our children to perceive us as concerned, enthusiastic givers to those around us. As you can see by these wonderful examples, our young people and our faculty have taken this life long lesson to heart.
May you all enjoy the holiday season and have a happy and healthy 2018!
