Good afternoon Menands families!

It seems impossible that this is the last Friday of the school year – A few reminders and updates as we look ahead to our final week together before summer vacation: 

There will be no school on Monday, June 20 in observation of Juneteenth. Also, June 21 through 23 will be early release days. Tuesday and Wednesday, students will be dismissed at 11:20 am. Thursday dismissal will be at 10:30 am. 

Our A-Z countdown  will wrap up as follows: 

June 21: X-change Autographs Day

June 22: Year-end Cleanup Day

June 23: Zip into Summer – Last Day of School!

We are excited to celebrate some milestones next week, including Pre-K Moving up, Kindergarten Graduation, and our graduating 8th Grade Class of 2022.

The Menands School PTA Staff Appreciation Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 from 12 pm -2 pm. They are planning a taco bar for school staff and are still seeking contributions.

Since we still have an abundant supply, and knowing many of you may have plans to travel and attend gatherings during the summer, we would like to make available to families COVID-19 test kits. If you would like a supply of test kits, please contact our school nurse, Mrs. Roseberger: droseberger@menands.org or (518)465-4561 ext. 109 to make arrangements to pick them up.

This summer, the Village of Menands will host the Summer Park Program from Tuesday, July 5 through Tuesday, August 16 at Ganser-Smith Park. Sign-up information is available on our website. Additionally, families will be able to register campers Tuesday, July 5 at the park. Any questions can be directed to Brianna Coughlin via email at youthdirector@villageofmenands.com

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Have a wonderful weekend!
