  • MORE THAN PLEASE AND THANK YOU

    In addition to learning core academic skills, Mandalay students have been brushing up their manners with the Manners of the Month program. During this yearlong program, students focused on one key “manner” per month including choosing words carefully, saying thank you and sorry, watching their tone of voice, demonstrating patience, complementing peers, greeting others and saying excuse me.

  • We all STEAM for Ice Cream!

    A cold day in January could not stop the enthusiasm of Mandalay first grade students during Cheryl Schwartz and Hope Rubinstein’s lesson on making vanilla ice cream. This activity applied principles learned about measurements, as well as the differences between a liquid, solid and gas.

  • A VISIT FROM THE ISLANDERS

    Students and staff at Mandalay and Forest Lake elementary schools dressed in hockey jerseys and donned blue and orange to welcome four members of the New York Islanders hockey team. On Islanders Day each year, schools are chosen to receive a visit from the players, who speak about teamwork, motivation, a healthy lifestyle and the key to academic success. The players also take the time to sign autographs.

Principal's Message


 

Dear Parents:

Summertime seems to move faster than we would hope for, and before you know it I will be greeting all of the Mandalay children back to school on September 1st.  The start of a school year marks new beginnings, and memories to be made.  I am pleased to know each child’s name that is returning to Mandalay, and eager to learn about our incoming kindergartners and new students to the district.  One of the greatest joys of my job is gaining a small glimpse of the children each day while they are at school.

This summer my family and I embarked upon our own new journey, as we moved to another town.  Watching my children prepare to attend a new school (with an anxious feeling inside themselves) reminded me once again on just how important the role of a school factors into a child's social and emotional well-being. 

Rest assure, the staff at Mandalay is your partner in ensuring the success of your child.  Our goal is to promote a child's self-confidence while attending Mandalay, balanced with their academic success.  We will continue to prepare the children with a rich curriculum, and embed opportunities for them to think critically, exposing them to STEAM initiatives.
 

I look forward to a successful school year. 

Warm Regards,

Marie Pisicchio
