Hemlock had a great month of November and our students really enjoyed the virtual Veterans Day Assembly, our wonderful kick off to PARP, dressing up for our fall Spirit Week and a virtual read aloud with Ms. Bellovin!
Now that December is here, we are very much looking forward to the holiday season ahead! Our November Primary PTA meeting featured a very helpful presentation from our district Psychologists and Social Workers on navigating the upcoming holiday season and pandemic winter from a Social/Emotional perspective. It included tips on how to deal with “Covid fatigue”, helping younger children manage disappointments related to celebrating the holidays in 2020, and how to approach what feels like the particularly long months of January and February. If you’d like to see a copy of the presentation, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to send it to you.
I’d like to thank our Winter Beautification committee for their efforts in decorating the outside of Hemlock for the winter season! A huge thank you as well to all the parents who generously donated the decorations that we used – we couldn’t do this without you! We hope the fun decorations bring some holiday cheer to our Hemlock students, faculty and parents!
I’d also like to congratulate our Hemlock PTA Reflections winners: Dominic Ziniti (1st place, Literature), Abigail Eng (2nd place, Literature), Kayli Zhang (1st place, Visual Arts), Patrick Burns (2nd place, Visual Arts), Sally Leggett (3rd place, Visual Arts), Ryan Madden (Honorable Mention, Visual Arts), and Kellen Mastiaglio (1st place, Photography). We are so proud of you! Thank you as well to our Reflections Committee and to all the entrants for participating this year! Good luck to those advancing to the Nassau County level competition!
From all of us at the Garden City PTA, we wish you the warmest Season’s Greetings, and a very Happy New Year!
