The holiday season is officially here! It was so wonderful to see so many Bergen families at our Annual Feast of Thanksgiving last month. I love seeing past and present students with their families celebrating together.
December is a short month filled with exciting events. Our Winter Concert will be on Monday, December 12th at the Bergen Middle School campus. We will be running this concert the same way we ran the spring concert. Students in kindergarten and first will have a concert from 6-6:30 and 2-3 will have a concert from 7-7:30. Please look for important information next week from the music teacher, Ms. Miller regarding the event.
Our school nurse, Ms. Lindy Gelber has been working vigilantly to maintain the health and well being of all our students. Please make sure that requests for immunizations and other documentation are shared with her in a timely manner.
Along with the cooler weather it is also cold and flu season. Please be mindful of our school’s health policies. The health and safety of every student is very important to us. Our staff takes care to support and maintain the health and well being of all our students. If your child is sick please keep them home so they can get the rest they need to get well. Jackets and or sweatshirts (depending on daily temperatures) are required for all students in order to go out for recess. Please make sure that your child follows our dress code. Sweaters and sweatshirts that are not part of the school uniform are not permitted.
Please don’t forget that Winter Break is from December 19-January 2. Friday, December 16 is a half- day and all clubs and after care is cancelled. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 3rd.
Please encourage your child to read and practice math skills over the holiday break. It is important for the students to retain key skills learned during the first half of the school year.
We continue to encourage you to be mindful of drop off and pick up procedures.
I would like to wish all our Bergen Families a safe and healthy holiday season!
