Dear Babylon Memorial Grade School Families,

We hope that you are having a wonderful start to the new year, 2021! The holiday season and the conclusion of 2020 was filled with much gratitude, while we created meaningful learning experiences for our students. Although we will never forget what we all experienced in 2020, we will always remember the lessons that we learned about relationships, kindness, gratitude, and hope. We are excited that a new year is upon us, where we can continue to reflect, create new learning opportunities, and ensure continued student growth and success.

Babylon Memorial Grade School continues to promote health and safety as our top priority for all students and staff. We thrive on providing our students with daily experiences to promote their academic, social, and emotional development. In addition to our content area programs and special area classes, we invite our students to participate in different initiatives to promote kindness, acceptance, and positive relationships within our school and local community. Recently, our students participated in Kindness Week, where each day focused on a specific theme. We even had a friendly competition amongst grade levels. Our fifth-grade students rose to the occasion by demonstrating the most acts of kindness throughout the week! Additionally, our school showed compassion by participating in a Food Drive and a Toy Drive to help others in need. We made generous donations to both Island Harvest and Toys for Tots on behalf of our amazing families!

Our strong partnership continues to play a vital role in educating our students. We had the pleasure of meeting with parents/guardians during or very first Virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences. We are looking forward to our students participating in a variety of virtual after-school clubs that will engage our students in different areas of interest. Be sure to continue to read our weekly newsletter to stay connected and learn all about what is happening around the halls of Babylon Memorial Grade School.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding your child. Wishing our Babylon families continued health and happiness in the new year!
