Principal's Weekly Message

The Petrides School


The Week of: December 11, 2017


Dear Parents,


Thank you to the PTA (and many parent volunteers) for hosting our annual Holiday Fair today.   The kids were very excited to shop for their families (and a little for themselves)!   They were thoughtful in picking just the right things . . . I’m sure there will be many happy moms, dads, brothers and sisters at gift giving time. 


College Access for All:

A free virtual college fair for the Northeast region scheduled will be held from December 11th through December16th.  Parents and students can log on any time during this week and get information from many colleges.  To register, you must go to<> to the students tab.


Campus Traffic:

Please obey all traffic signs and follow established traffic patterns in and around the campus.  And, park only in designated parking spots when leaving your car to pick up your child from school.  The Department of Transportation recently re-signed our parking lot to clearly identify No Parking areas and No Parking zones.  Please be aware that illegally parked cars will be ticketed.  We appreciate your cooperation.


Here’s what’s happening next week . . .
