Unity
By Ray A. Lingenfelter

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there,
The clay they used was a young child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher:
the tools she used were books and music and art;
One was a parent:
With a guiding hand and gentle loving heart.

And when at last their work was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had worked into the child
Could never be sold or bought!

And each agreed she would have failed
if she had worked alone.
For behind the parent stood the school,
and behind the teacher stood the home!


Important Reminder to Parents!
 
 Parents, it is very important to remember if you are going to enter our school building, you will be asked to present a valid NY State ID or current passport every time you enter.
Please understand it is the law you cannot enter the building without it.

 Our school has a school uniform policy.  Students should wear navy blue pants, skirt or jumper and a light blue top (button down or polo).
