Full Steam Ahead with the End of the Year Approaching

Another week half way done at Ivy League and days closer to the end of the year and summer vacation, but that has not slowed us down at Ivy League one bit! Firstly, I’d like to take a minute and congratulate all of our performers for their Broadway Revue performances. You were all wonderful and you should be incredibly proud!

This past Monday, May 13, 2019, the entire school celebrated “Dia de los niños”, which means “the day of the children” in Spanish. Under the coordination of Senora Keach, each class shared a presentation with their peers. Some classes shared their knowledge of family members through a song; others shared songs about colors, numbers, months of the year and days of the week. The upper grades from 5th -7th are learning more about Spanish culture and put on dance performances for the
younger kids. It is spectacular to see how much knowledge our students have of other cultures and how fluent they are becoming in new languages.

The pre-k classes are gearing up for their Moving Up ceremonies. Earlier this week, the pre-k classes took their graduation photos. The classes are in full on practice mode and we can assure you that there will not be a dry eye in the audience. Please make sure you are checking your classes’ Blackbaud announcements for information on the Moving Up times.

Field Trips!

Next week, two big field trips are taking place. Kindergarten through 4th grade will be visiting the Bronx Zoo on Monday, May 20, 2019. This trip is always so much fun. The kids will take part in a workshop and be able to visit all part of the zoo. The Gorilla House and tram ride are always the fan favorites! On Wednesday, May 22, 2019, the middle school students will be adventuring to Six Flags Great Adventure for their education day. They will get to test their creations for the egg drop and
learn about how rollercoasters are tested before putting actual visitors on them.

Although the end of the year is rapidly approaching, there is still so much going on at Ivy League, so be on the look out for Blackbaud announcements and emails from the school and your classroom teacher!
