Special Classes



AIS:  Summer is a wonderful time to read for enjoyment. It’s a perfect time to visit the local library and pick out all kinds of fantastic books. Read a good book under a shady tree, at the beach, or on a cozy couch. Don’t forget to bring a book or two with you on vacation. Remember to complete your summer and math assignments from your teachers. These assignments will prepare you well for the new school year. Enjoy the rest of your summer. I am excited to see you all very soon!

ART: I hope everyone is having a great summer! Looking for more fun this summer? You can always jump on the computer and research local or city Art Museums. Share your creativity and skills you have learned in class! Create fun art projects with friends and family. I can’t wait to hear all about your creative summer adventures.

MEDIA:  I hope you are enjoying your summer reading! Remember, every hero has a story! Check your local library for Reading Club information and other fun events! I look forward to seeing you next month!

MUSIC: Happy Summer!  I hope everyone is relaxing and enjoying their time off. I’m really looking forward to this upcoming school year! I’m eager to start a whole new repertoire of songs for choir and bell choir, new music clubs, and PAC. I’m especially looking forward to starting a new recorder program for grades 4th and 5th, which will include the use of recorder-playing apps on the iPads, new songs, and more! Please visit my music page to stay current on what the students are learning in music class; sign-up information for our music-related clubs; NYSSMA registration; rehearsal and concert dates and times, as well as my contact information. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in the fall!  - Mr. Mansfield

PERFORMING ARTS: I hope you’ve been enjoying the summer sun!  There are so many exciting events ahead of us for Performing Arts this year.  I can’t wait to see you all for class!  Is this your year to join Performing Arts Club? PAC is always looking for new members; maybe we will see you there!  What’s your favorite song this summer? Did you see a great play or musical? How would you rate the movies? I can’t wait to hear about it!  See you soon!

PHYSICAL EDUCATION: This summer is flying by! I am looking forward to seeing you all in a few weeks. I hope everyone has been exercising and having fun playing outside this summer!

SPANISH:  I hope you are all having a great “verano! Continue keeping safe and use “protector solar”.  Don’t forget to practice your “español”.  See you in Septiembre!

TECHNOLOGY: I can’t believe it’s already August!  In a few weeks, we will be starting our new school year!  I hope you all had the chance to enjoy the beautiful weather with your friends and family!  Remember don’t stay inside all summer on your electronic devices.  Get outside and enjoy your last few weeks!  Also, be SMART about the choices you make in regards to social media and what information you put on the Internet.  See you in a few weeks! =)
