Celebrate Reading!
Our students had a blast during Dr. Seuss Week!  The children were very creative in celebrating some of Dr. Seuss’ classic books; including Green Eggs and Ham, Fox In Socks, Wacky Wednesday, Cat in the Hat, and Sleep Book.  We wore green, crazy/mismatched socks, clothes backwards/mismatched, red and stripes, and comfortable clothes or pajamas.  Many classes were visited by special guest readers too!  All of the boys and girls were encouraged to read, read, read and had the opportunity to earn raffle tickets for all of their reading.  Congratulations to our three winners

Mr. Gary Passenti, Board of Education President, visited Mrs. Papamarkos’ 4th Grade Class.

Mrs. Christadore visited Mrs.                    Gentilello’s 5th Grade Class.

Let's Fill the Bus!
The Homeless Bus is an organization that seeks donations of various items to deliver to less fortunate areas in New York.  With February being the month of compassion at School 16, staff and students helped support this worthy cause by donating water, snacks, applesauce, and granola bars.  Some of the girls in Brownies assisted in loading the bus and gathering additional donations.  We are so proud of how everyone worked together to make a difference in the world.  A special thank you to Mrs. Trout for organizing this! 
  

Happy Valentine’s Day!
School 16 held its first annual Valentine’s Day Dance on February 14th sponsored by Project Unify.  The boys and girls enjoyed dancing along to a variety of Just Dance videos that were projected on the big screen in the gym, which was beautifully decorated with balloon bouquets, glittered hearts, and large posters.  Each student received a small goody bag and a treat!  The fun festivities would not have been possible without the help of many volunteers, especially Mrs. Trout, Mr. Horton, Mrs. McCarthy, Ms. Fasouletos, Ms. Pagano, and Ms. Guidetti.
             

The Annual HSA Coat Drive was a success! Over 100 items, including 40+coats were collected. School 16's very own Girl Scout Brownies, Juliette Junior and parents of Troop 96393 helped with getting the donation ready for delivery to St. Peter's Haven in Clifton. Thanks to everyone for your kindness this year!
