Wow! It's hard to believe December is already here! This is always such an exciting time of year at Stratford School. There is a festive atmosphere and the hallways are alive with the children’s holiday spirit!
As 2023 comes to an end I want to stop and thank the staff of Stratford and GC School District for the dedication and hard work that is put into each and every single day. The families of our community deserve a thanks as well, as all of the amazing PTA events of 2023 could not have been possible without them.
November was a great time to be a Stratford student. Third Graders went on a field trip to the Long Island Children's Museum. They had a blast exploring all of the different learning spaces with their friends. The second graders performed their annual Thanksgiving concert. This talented group of children shared songs and performances including the famous “Turkey Tango”. Families were delighted and some were even caught singing the Turkey Tango on Thanksgiving!
The Polar Express event was held on December 1 and was a huge hit as always! The second and third graders were excited to punch their golden tickets care of our trusty conductors, Mr. Hartigan and Mrs. Quezada. The children were treated to a private showing of the movie in their pajamas. Thank you to our amazing Family Fun Committee and extra thank you to Alaina Baebler, for always going the extra mile to make the events as special as possible! For anyone who missed the event, PARP will be holding the virtual Polar Express later this month so be on the lookout for further details.

Congratulations to all of you and to all of the 1st & 2nd place winners who will be moving onto the Nassau County level of competition! The awards ceremony will be held in March and we look forward to celebrating these accomplishments.
The Beautification Committee will be decorating for the holiday season. A Sign Up Genius link was sent out by the class parents. We would like to thank everyone for their generosity with these donations. We save everything possible from year to year. But we always need to add more and replace some pieces. Thank you for making this possible!
On behalf of the entire GCPTA I would like to wish all of you a very happy holiday season filled with those you love most. Cherish the sweet and simple moments with your children. Have a happy and healthy 2024!
