Exciting Reading Opportunity
Selected Heatly elementary students will be working with The College of Saint Rose graduate students as part of their Classroom Practicum in Literacy.  This will provide our students with additional after school reading support. This after school program will greatly benefit students in their reading and writing development. All graduate students are NYS certified teachers.  We welcome The College of Saint Rose to Heatly!  The program will begin Wednesday, May 27th and will end on Monday, June 22nd.

Unused Snowdays

No school on Friday, May 22 and Tuesday, May 26.  Each year we account for school cancellations (snow days, loss of power or water,...) by constructing a school calendar that exceeds the state requirement for days (180) and the teacher contract for days (181). The teachers must work 181 days regardless of how many cancelled days we have in the year. They are not paid for these unused snow days. We usually build four days into the calendar for cancellations. Since we only cancelled school two days, we have two extra days beyond our contract and state requirements. As a result, we will close school on Friday May 22nd and Tuesday May 26th to extend the Memorial Day weekend.

Sixth Graders Study Greece
During the past few weeks, the 6th graders have been learning about ancient Greece. One of their project-based learning activities was to research a Greek God or Goddess. The students needed to research the what their God or Goddess represented, their family, and clothing that was worn. The 6th graders did an amazing job and had so much fun presenting to their parents and the students in K-5. [PHOTO]

A Message From Dr. Mugits

Although the recent cold weather may have people thinking of winter, we have only completed our 8th day of school. This year marked my 40th “opening day” of school.  Every opening day produces excitement and challenges. The first day holds the promise of a fresh start and optimism. The callenges arise from the reminder that school staff members have a tremendous responsibility of sustaining the dreams and nurturing the hope of all learners. This is certainly not a task to be taken lightly. [MESSAGE]
