College and Career Week.

The schedule for the week is as follows:

Wednesday, October 14 (Also Got College Night at UHS - 7 pm)
Thursday, October 15
  • Guest speakers will be in the school to speak about their college and/or career experiences (Confirmed speakers include Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby and Uniondale Fire Commissioner Anthony Lebron. We are expecting to add two additional speakers). 
Friday, October 16
  • What I Want To Be Day - is a day for students to explore the working world and the range of opportunities as they grow up. Students should come to school dressed as something they would like to be when they grow up and prepare a short speech to share with their classmates highlighting their reasons for this choice.  
We encourage our families to share their college and/or career experiences with their children. Any family member who would be interested in speaking with a group of students can contact the principal at (516) 918-1705. 



We all shop for groceries, sometimes two or three times a week. Now turn those shopping trips into easy cash for your school.  Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®, Hamburger Helper®and Kleenex®in almost every aisle of the store. All you need to do is clip and send them in. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school!  Use the following collection sheets to keep track of your box tops. For more information go to http://www.boxtops4education.com/

Check out our very own Ms. King.  She was featured in the national PTA magazine "Our Children".
