Dear Parents,

Welcome to Barnard Early Childhood Center!  We are home to the District’s only pre-school programs (UPK and magnet) as well as our magnet kindergarten, grades 1 and 2.  We offer a comprehensive educational experience which includes physical education, fine arts, Italian and library media.  Students will have experiences at each grade level that align with the New York Common Core Learning Standards.  There will be opportunities throughout the year to visit the school, as well as hear about our curriculum and what it means for your child. 

We have been busy this summer preparing for the 2014-2015 school year.  Our first day for all kindergarten through grade 2 students will be Wednesday, September 3rd .  This will be a half-day of school. Dismissal is at 11:40 am.  Please inform your child’s teacher regarding how your child is being transported to and from school, and if there are any special arrangements.   Our pre-school children will begin their transition on Monday, September 22nd .  We are excited to meet our new students, and to see our returning students well rested and ready to learn!

Looking ahead to our first month’s activities, please mark your calendars for the first PTA meeting on September 9th, Amy’s Greenhouse 9/11 Memorial on the 11th, the Puentes Pre-K and New Families to Barnard meeting also on the 11th, and our kindergarten through grade 2 Meet the Teacher Night Thursday, September 18t.  at 6:30 pm. We strongly recommend this event be for adults only.  We will meet in the auditorium for an introduction, and proceed to the classrooms to meet your child’s teachers. Translation devices will be available for those who will need them for the auditorium presentation.  Please remember, this is an open meeting, and not a time for a personal conference. You will have the opportunity to register for a conference before or after the teacher’s presentation.
 
On behalf of the entire staff and myself, we look forward to working together to ensure success for every child here at Barnard. 

Respectfully,


Joanna Genovese 


Principal Barnard Early Childhood Center

Dr. Brian Osborne's Latest on The Huffington Post - Preparing Students for College Begins Earlier Than Most Parents Expect

High school seniors who applied Early Decision or Early Action to their first choice colleges in November are now hearing whether they've been admitted.  In the New Rochelle schools, we have been fortunate to learn our students have been accepted so far to Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, University of Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, The College of William and Mary, and Yale University.


Yet the college admissions journey for our students didn't start this year, or even in high school.  In New Rochelle, we offer opportunities for children to visit colleges while they're still in elementary school.  Children from Columbus School recently visited Iona College.   


A counselor gave kids and their parents a tour of the campus, answered questions, and discussed the courses to take in high school to best prepare for higher learning.

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.

School Community Health Advisory Influenza Vaccine Fall 2014/Winter 2015

The district wishes to ensure that the importance of getting the Influenza vaccine does not get lost in all of the media and public discussion of Enterovirus D68 and even Ebola. See Frank Bruni’s recent NY Times column,
“Scarier Than Ebola”:  Click Here


Influenza is a serious and potentially deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that ALL individuals 6 six months of age and older be vaccinated against Influenza.


The Flu virus changes genetically from year to year, so last year's Flu vaccine will not reliably protect you from this year's circulating Flu strains. Everyone needs to be vaccinated annually.
