Before I reveal the results of this year's Kid's Vote, I want to take a moment to thank the Waverly community for demonstrating such wonderful support for our schools. The passing of the school budget by more than a 73% margin (which represents a 9% increase in support from last year) is just one measure. What is even more impressive is the commitment that you display daily through your support of the PTA, your kindness toward our teachers, and your collaborative efforts to augment your childrens' learning at home.
The response to this year's Kids Vote was very positive. Based on the overwhelming majority vote, it is my pleasre to declare Friday, June 5, 2015 as Waverly's official "Pajama Day." On this day, your children are invited to wear their pajamas to school. We just ask that you make sure that students are sent to school with appropriate footwear so they can play outside at recess (no slippers, please.)
In addition to the annual budget and kids vote, the community also elected three new trustees to serve on the Board of Education. My sincere congratulations go to incumbents: Dave Carforo, John Curcio and Michelle Kissel for their selection; my thanks for their willingness to serve this vital role. It is my firm belief that the most powerful educational decision you can make for your child is your selection of Board Trustees. I am sure these fine individuals will be an asset to your students, our schools and the broader community.

Welcome to the Waverly School!
The Waverly School is a district-wide kindergarten and first grade school. The developmentally appropriate program is exploratory and "hands-on" in nature, and is designed to promote each child's social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth. Curiosity and the joy of learning are emphasized to develop life long learners. We teach basic skills, strategies, concepts, and critical thinking skills meeting the learning needs of all children as they begin their educational experience in Eastchester.
