Dear Babylon Memorial Grade School Families,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We are excited to welcome back our entire school community and thrilled to begin a new year filled with new beginnings and opportunities. Whether your child(ren) will be returning to school in-person or via their virtual classroom, we are confident that they will be given the resources required to be successful learners. Students will be afforded with opportunities to enable their growth and development each day.

This summer, a collaborative team of talented professionals within our district and school community worked diligently to prepare our school for a safe reopening. We are proud of the entire team’s collaboration and what has been accomplished during this short period of time. Although the start of our school year will look a bit differently than in previous years, we recognize that the safety of our students and staff is of utmost importance. We are confident that our learners will adjust to new safety routines and procedures with guidance from our faculty and staff members.

At Babylon Memorial Grade School, we place a strong emphasis on educating the whole child. Our skilled teachers align their content area lessons to the New York State Learning Standards and set high expectations for student learning. Students are engaged in daily reading, writing, math, social studies and science lessons. Along with the main content area subjects, students are also given the opportunity to participate in special area classes to enhance their learning. These classes include library, music, art, physical education and technology.

We continue to foster a strong home-school connection with our Babylon families and we encourage your continued partnership this year. Parents/guardians serve as partners in their child’s education and we appreciate your ongoing collaboration and support. Our weekly newsletter is a wonderful way to stay connected with all the important news and exciting events happening around our school. Becoming a member of our PTA is another way for families to get involved and help foster a positive learning environment for our learners.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to the promise of our new school year!


Sincerely,

Steve Goldberg Lauren Fretto
