The Petrides School

PRINCIPAL’S WEEKLY MESSAGE

The Week of: April 9, 2018

 

Dear Parents,

 

The National Honor Society (NHS) is a nationwide organization for high school students in the United States.  Selection for admission to the organization is based on four criteria: scholarship (academic achievement), leadership, service, and character.  Last week, the Petrides Chapter of the National Honor Society hosted it annual induction ceremony.  Congratulations to our newly inducted members and their families! 

 

STATE EXAMS Administered this week

It’s that time of year . . . the NY State assessment in ELA will be administered to students in grades 3 through 8 next week (Wednesday and Thursday).   It’s time for our students to show what they know!   To be prepared for test days, please be sure your child gets a good night sleep.  Please send your child with two #2 sharpened pencils. 

 

Join us for a night of fun!

Petrides High School presents: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (see show times below).  We’ve already identified several “Golden Ticket” winners! Come early and enjoy the experience of the Candy Shop.  We hope to see you here!
