Seasons Greetings!

IMG_7768Dear TAOTS Families,

We can hardly believe that the first half of the 2014-2015 school year has passed so quickly. As we take a moment to reflect on our school’s accomplishments, we realize how very special TAOTS is. Your children are special as well, to our school community. Our sixth year marks another historical moment for us here at TAOTS. We are excited to announce that our very first “kindergarteners” from when we opened our doors in September of 2009 will be graduating! It is a remarkable time in our school’s history and you are taking part in it.

So far this year some of our school’s major highlights include the following:

  • Within our district, we ranked #1 in ELA and #2 in Mathematics on the New York State Assessments.
  • Our Quality Review feedback included some of our best educational practices.
  • Our newly created upper grade band program & partnership with Carnegie Hall continue to support our schools growing arts programs.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a healthy and happy holiday season. Enjoy a well-deserved winter recess.

We look forward to seeing all our students back to school on January 5, 2015 and partnering up once again for an exciting second half of our school year.

Educationally Yours,

Josephine Sportella-Giusto, Principal

Maria Rogalle, Assistant Principal
