A morning initiative called D.E.A.R. TIME will start your child's day. During morning line up students will have the opportunity to read something of their own choice for fun. Taking time to read will expose students to the written word and develop their reading and writing skills. Parents can help empower their children by providing them with a book, newspaper, magazine etc. to get their morning started off right!
READERS ARE LEADERS!
Dr. St. Louis will be at Northern Parkway on May 16th and May 23th to complete physicals on students in grades K, 2, 4, & 5 who are not in compliance with NYS Education Department guidelines. If your child has a completed physical by their primary care doctor and you have not yet submitted it to the health office, please do so as soon as possible.

Hundreds of dental professionals from across Long Island volunteer their time to provide dental services.
CLIP BOX TOPS
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".
