Hello to all and hope this finds everyone enjoying the very welcome beautiful weather! June’s arrival has brought with it a whirlwind of activity!

The second annual Special Olympics for school age students, which had been scheduled for

June 1st, were postponed due to rain and have been rescheduled for the last day of school on Friday, June 22nd. We are absolutely looking forward to a day of fun, friends, festivity, and food! Volunteers are welcome and invited to join in the fun by contacting Amber M. at

(518) 832-6152. Some of our preschool classes are also planning end of year celebrations this month including “Moving Up” ceremonies, in recognition of students’ hard work all year.

Thanks in large part to a grant donation from the Charles R. Wood Foundation, in addition to fundraising efforts within the community, plans for repairs to the pool are in progress, in anticipation for re-opening by fall. Other building updates include the replacement of counter tops and cabinets in all of our classrooms, scheduled to begin the week of June 25th. Classrooms have also recently had new blinds installed, so overall our rooms are in great shape!

In other news, our collaborative classroom with Warren County Head Start , located in the Queensbury Elementary School, will be participating in the 4th annual Community Day celebration on Tuesday, June 15th at the Warren County Head Start building on Pearl Street. Booths will be set up with information, special activities, music, snacks and more! The fun is scheduled from 12 noon to 2:00pm on Friday, June 15th, and families are invited to attend. Also, on Friday May 24th, seven members of the Queensbury High School senior class participated at Prospect Center in a senior “give back day”. Student volunteers helped plant flowers and rake leaves, with beautiful results. Their efforts are greatly appreciated.

Parents received information regarding a summer digital reading program sponsored by the NYSED and myON, to bring enhanced digital books to children from birth to 8th grade now through September 2018. This program features more than 6,000 fiction and nonfiction e-books, with 24/7 access, online and offline. For information please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the Center.

A reminder that last day of school for all students will be Friday, June 22nd. The extended school year/summer session is scheduled to run for 6 weeks from July 9th – August 17th, with regular school hours in effect.

Wishing all students and families a wonderful and healthy summer. Stay tuned for future updates!
