Are you ready? Annual ‘A-Z Days’ begin on Monday, May 16

A-Z Days, an annual Menands School tradition, will begin on Monday, May 16 until the end of the school year. Each school day will have a respective theme corresponding with a letter of the alphabet, such as Dance Day and Joke Day, leading up to the last day of school. Below, you will find a schedule of the theme days. Additionally, students have been sent home with a printed copy of this calendar.

The goal of A-Z days is to make the last few weeks of school even more fun and exciting for our students. Some of the events will depend on the weather and some will require some items from home, such as Blue and Gold Day, Hat Day and Mismatch Day. Any students who would like to participate that do not have such items at home can reach out to Ms. Cahill or Mrs. Wroblewski, Mrs. Stanton or Mrs. Ball.

Want to see what our students are up to during A-Z Days? Make sure to follow us on Facebook for reminders and photos for each day.
