April Principal Achievement Award

One April 17th School 4 was lucky enough to host a touring Australian Band and Chorus from Mosman High School in Mosman Australia. The group was composed of a concert band, jazz band and chorus with approximately 52 students ages 12-18 years. Their tour began in Los Angeles then to Washington D.C. where they performed at the Cherry Blossom Festival, New York City where they performed at the Empire State Building and Lincoln Center and finally School #4.
       Both our staff and students were amazed by the musicianship and kindness demonstrated by the performers.  At the conclusion of the concert, the students of Mosman High School presented each of our 3-5 grade students with gifts. The principal of Mosman High School, Susan Wyatt, then presented Mr. Habedank with a beautiful print depicting Sydney Australia which will hang in the main office at School 4 for years to come.  A special thank you to Jason Leshowitz, our Supervisor of Visual and Performing Arts K-12 for making this possible!

Spooky Literacy Night

School 4 celebrated another successful Spooky Literacy Night. Mr. Habedank started the night by reading "Where the Wild Things Are" to all of the boys and girls who were dressed up in their Halloween costumes. The children were then split up into groups where they participated in various fun literacy based activites ending with the 5th grade students participating in a mummy wrap where they competed to see which team wrap either Mr. Berberich or Mr. Habedank first.Spooky Literacy Night
 
     I would like to thank all of the parents who attended and participated in the many activities with their children. A special thank you goes out to our teachers, Mrs. Celluro, Mrs. Kopko, Mrs. Vigiletti, Ms. Reale and Mr. Berberich for helping make the night a success. Finally a thank you to our PTO officers, Mrs. Roman, Mrs. Vaz and Ms. Justiniano for all of their support. I look forward to our many extracurricular events to come. I hope to see all of our parents and students there!
