  • MANDALAY HOLDS STEAM DAY

    Collaboration was key for students as they participated in Mandalay’s STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics) Day in the gymnasium. Under the direction of STEAM consultants Joan Soldano and Brianna Paul, and with supplies donated by the school’s PTA, students in each grade lent their ideas to the completion of specific tasks that honed the engineering and design processes.

  • HEALTHY EATING, HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

    In recognition of National Nutrition Month, Mandalay students are taking a closer look at what they are eating during lunch. During March, the school goal is for students to become more mindful when choosing food items, to incorporate more lean proteins, whole grains and vegetables and to limit sugars and processed foods.

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 5th.  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.

    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
