Elementary Teachers Greet Students with Welcome Letters

Many teachers start the school year with a summertime welcome letter.

Each year, many elementary teachers in Three Village's five elementary schools greet their students over the summer not just with a list of school supplies – but also with a letter enthusiastically welcoming the students to a new school year.

This year is no different, with welcome letters available for each of the schools here:

Among those welcome letters, teachers shared some cheerful sentiments:

"Kick back, relax and enjoy the rest of your vacation. Come back full of energy and eager to share your summer experiences." – Ms. Tortorici, fifth grade teacher at Setauket

"We will be going on an awesome adventure as we move through the school year." – Mrs. MacDowell, third grade teacher at Nassakeag

"We will be sharing many good times this year and making many good friends, too." – Mrs. Gunning, kindergarten teacher at Setauket

"Many challenges lay ahead of us, but we will tackle them together and
create a classroom community that will help all of us to be successful." – Mrs. Lopresti, fifth grade teacher at Nassakeag

"The best thing you can do to get ready is to relax, enjoy the summer, and continue reading and writing every day (at least twenty minutes). Remember to read both fiction and nonfiction!" – Mr. Dowling, Minnesauke fifth grade teacher

"Most importantly, remember your smile!" – Mrs. Michalski, Arrowhead first grade teacher

That's nice that Elementary teachers try to make incoming students feel welcome, but what about reporting about the WM students who need schedule changes and are turned away and told to wait until the first week of classes? Every year this happens and our high schoolers miss the first few days of classes due to poor planning. It's nice to welcome Elementary students but it's necessary for Secondary students to have a finalized schedule!
