Dear Side by Side Families:
Welcome back from spring recess! I hope you all had an enjoyable break.
A group of Side by Side students were pleased to see their works of art selected for inclusion in the annual “Kaleidoscope of Creativity” event at Quinnipiac University. Students from Side by Side, North Haven and Hamden Public Schools were introduced at a ceremony in the education offices at Quinnipiac University, where their artwork will be displayed. I would like to congratulate our students Austin Ayala (Grade 2), Laura Weiss (Grade 3), Isha Cheema (Grade 5) and Matisen Sutton (Grade 8) for their achievement. I’d like to also extend a special thanks to our art teacher, Mr. Bryant Zilinski, for his help putting this together.
As we gear-up for the final two months of the school year, I have important dates to share:
Wednesday, May 8 is a Professional Development 1 P.M. early dismissal day. Our teachers will use this time to continue developing the new, inter-disciplinary social studies units aligned to the Common Core.
NO SCHOOL on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day
Friday, June 21 is the last day of school at Side by Side
There will be early dismissals at 1:30 P.M. beginning on Wednesday, June 19 through Friday, June 21
Extended day ends on Tuesday, June 18
8th grade graduation is scheduled for Thursday, June 20 at 6 P.M.
