SPRINGHURST CHOICE BOARDS - SUMMER ACTIVITIES
In order to continue the learning over the summer, K-8 Literacy Coordinator Michelle Yang-Kaczmarek and K-6 Math Specialist Josh Rosen have developed a collection of resources in both ELA and Mathematics for all Springhurst students. Each grade level will have a Choice Board, which is essentially a grid with a range of activities that give students the opportunity to choose the activity they would like to do and to learn in a variety of ways.
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!
This is sure to be a historic year for schools across the country. I am grateful for the tireless efforts of the Dobbs Ferry School District and the numerous community and parent volunteers who dedicated a tremendous amount of time to helping us arrive at our opening for this year.
We are all embarking on a brand new experience together, which is a rare and monumental occurrence. I know that the Springhurst staff has the talent and the motivation to do an excellent job in spite of the circumstances. Springhurst is a special place. Our goal is to inspire and challenge students so that they are all able to have a positive learning experience. Our highly-qualified staff is at the ready to help students achieve success, and take advantage of the wonderful resources and opportunities that we offer at the Elementary School.
Assistant Principal Cavallo and I are pleased to launch the 2020-2021 school year with a reading of a story titled, The Day You Begin, by Jacqueline Woodson (click here to watch). I hope that you enjoy the story, and that its important message resonates with you. I also hope that all the children at Springhurst will experience “the day [they] begin,” and that this book will serve as an inspiration.
I look forward to partnering with you to help your children grow and excel throughout the year and for many years to come.
