Dear Students and Families,

I hope you are enjoying a sunny, fun-filled Labor Day Weekend!

We had a fantastic start to 2014-2015 at Abbot-Downing School!  Kicking off with an Ice Cream Social on Monday evening was certainly a highlight for many, as children and families came together in celebration of the new school year!  

Teachers have anxiously been anticipating the arrival of their new students and our kiddos 'made the grade' as they arrived on Tuesday with bright sunny smiles.  I had the opportunity to visit each classroom that first morning and the children were already happily engaged in activities and discussions with their teachers.  Kuddos to our Abbot-Downing Team!

In order to provide you with important updates and information, it is my intent to develop a regularly scheduled Abbot-Downing Newsletter Link here on our website.  Please check back regularly as this develops.

This week, I am pleased to announce that Abbot-Downing will once again be offering the Free Fruit & Veggie Program (FFVP).  A grant provides fruits or vegetables, such as apples, bananas or carrots as a snack for our students, and this year will be offered three days per week, Monday, Wednesday & Thursday!  

Here's to a terrific week two of learning and fun!

Sincerely,

Kathleen Riordan, Principal
