  • Dear Parents or Guardians, 

    The purpose of this letter is to make you aware of a number of important events. Please mark your calendars: 

    1. November 4, 2022 
    On Friday, November 4, 2022, the Van Wyck PBIS committee is sponsoring a faculty volleyball tournament as a fundraiser. The cost of purchasing a ticket is $5.00, which can be purchased during your children's lunch periods. Children will go home on their regular buses and come back to school by 4:00 pm for the start of the tournament. 

    2. Shelter "Go Home" Drill 
    As a reminder, the Shelter "Go Home" drill will be held on Tuesday, November 22, 2022. At the signal, students will shelter in the hall for several minutes and then be released to their buses. You can expect your children home a few minutes earlier than usual depending on when buses depart from the school. 

    3. 8th Grade Semi-Formal 
    The 8th Grade Semi-Formal is scheduled for Thursday, June 15, 2023, from 5:30 pm-8:30 pm at the Villa Borghese. We locked in our date early to avoid scheduling inconveniences later on in the school year. The availability of venues was at a premium this school year. 

    4. 8th Grade Moving-up Ceremony 
    The 8th Grade Moving-up ceremonies by team are scheduled for June 20, 2023, June 21, 2023, with June 22, 2023 used as an emergency backup date, if necessary. There will be two sessions on each date. Session 1 is from 12:30 pm-1:30 pm; and Session 2 is from 2:00-3:00. The teacher teams associated with each date and time will be shared with you at a later date. 

    5.  7th and 8th Grade Dance 
    The 7th and 8th grade dance is scheduled for November 10, 2022, according to the following schedule: 
    7th grade-4:00 pm-6:00 pm 8th grade-7:00 pm-9:00 pm 
    Tickets will go on sale during lunch periods. 

    Finally, Friday, November 11, 2022 is Veterans Day. It is our tradition to recognize members of our community who are or were veterans of the US Armed Services. We include their names in our Morning News program. Please send their names to Theresa. by Friday, November 4, 2022. 

    Thank you. 
    We hope all is well and wish you in advance a joyous Thanksgiving.


    Dr. Steven H. Shuchat, Principal
