Dear Babylon Memorial Grade School Families,

We hope that you are having a wonderful start to the new year, 2020!  While the holiday season was filled with much gratitude and creating memorable experiences for our students, a new year is a time for reflection, new opportunities, and growth.  At the Grade School, we encourage our students to achieve their personal and academic goals.  They have so much to offer!  

Our school continues to provide our students with special experiences to promote their academic, social, and emotional development.  In addition to our content area programs and special area classes, we invite our students to participate in different initiatives to promote kindness, acceptance, and positive relationships in our school.  Most recently, students participated in the Start With Hello program which focuses on inclusivity and connectedness in our school.  This initiative, started by the Sandy Hook Promise, directly aligns with our PAWS program, which continues to promote positive expectations and recognizes classes for their “PAWS-ome” behavior.  Lastly, our school had the privilege of welcoming Holocaust survivor, Esther Basch, where students learned about her experiences while living in Auschwitz.  Ms. Basch’s powerful message on forgiveness is truly inspiring!

Our strong partnership continues to play a vital role in educating our students.  We had the pleasure of welcoming our families during Parent-Teacher Conferences and we are looking forward to our upcoming Winter Concerts at Rowe Hall to showcase our students’ musical talents.  Our PTA continues to plan and organize events for our school community.  Please continue to read our weekly newsletter to stay current with what’s happening around Babylon Memorial Grade School.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding your child.  We are looking forward to continued student growth and success in our amazing school community!
