Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The Holiday Season has arrived!

Willow Grove will be a busy place, with many events for our students. This week, Willow Grove will host the Rockland County Naturalization Ceremony, in conjunction with the Office of the Rockland County Clerk, on Friday, December 5th. The 4th Grade Chorus will be performing during the Ceremony, starting at 10:30AM, and the event is open to all. Please be aware that parking on Friday morning will be scarce, but we have arranged to have a shuttle service available from the parking lot at the top of the hill off of Suffern Lane.

Nest week, the PTA will host the annual Holiday Boutique. Students will be able to visit the Boutique on Monday, December 8th, through Wednesday, December 10th. Please check out the Willow Grove PTA Facebook page for more details.

Of course, the most important work we are doing is in the classroom. I encourage all families to remain diligent in checking student agendas to help our students stay on task with their learning.

Willow Grove PRIDE - we've got it!!
