A Message from Administration

August 2019

Dear Babylon Memorial Grade School Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  We are excited to welcome our students and families back to our school community and we are looking forward to the new opportunities this school year will offer.  We are eager to introduce and expand several schoolwide initiatives for our students to promote academic and 21st century critical thinking skills.

The Babylon Memorial Grade School teachers continue to provide instruction that aligns with the New York State learning standards.  Our goal continues to help each child succeed and we believe that teaching the whole child is the best recipe for success.  We place a strong emphasis not only on academics, but the social and emotional growth of our students, as well.  Each day, our students are reading, writing, listening, and speaking across the content areas.  They are also afforded the opportunity to participate in special classes, including physical education, music, art, library, technology, STEAM, and FLES.  There are many opportunities for student growth and development throughout the school year.

As always, we welcome a strong home/school connection to instill a love of learning in our students.  Parents are invited to serve as partners in their child’s education and continue their involvement in the daily activities in our school community.  Our weekly newsletters are an excellent way to stay informed of all the exciting events happening in our school.  In addition, reinforcing at home what is taught during the school day is vital to a child’s success and we want to ensure that each child develops to his/her fullest potential.

We are truly honored to share in our students’ discoveries and accomplishments throughout the school year.  Together, our collaboration will make this school year a memorable experience for our children and our community.
