Message from Mrs. Steele, Principal

Each year, we send home a survey to gather feedback on how we as a school are supporting our students and families. Typically, this survey includes feedback for various events we host here at school, but due to our COVID protocols, we were not able to offer those this year. We would really appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to answer our survey regarding our other Title One Reading Services. We only need 1 survey PER FAMILY. Thank you so much!!

Bedford Hills Scholastic Book Fair, April 19-May 2

You’re invited to shop our Scholastic Book Fair from NOW until May 2! All purchases benefit our school and connect kids with new books, favorite characters, complete series, and more!

Visit our Book Fair homepage and click “Shop Now” to get started:

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week: May 3-7

Please consider showing our teachers and staff how much they are appreciated! 

Ideas of ways to show your appreciation:

  • Plant 
  • Flowers
  • A letter of appreciation
  • A picture drawn by your child
  • Goody bag
  • Gift Certificate
  • An item they want for their classroom 

Many of the teachers are going to make a wish list of books from the Bookfair for their classroom that you could consider as well. Teachers may send it out via SeeSaw or Google Classroom.

Please remember that many classrooms (like all of Kindergarten) have an Instructional Assistant (IA) in their classroom and we definitely appreciate them too! Feel free to spread some love to any of the resource teachers and staff as well!

Thank you for helping show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate them!
