No Candy in School

Parents, please remember that students are not permitted to bring candy to school. The details of our practices at Waverly School are outlined on page 9 of the Family Handbook. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call Jeff Melendez at 914-793-6130, ext. 5502.


No Cars in the Bus Circle

Unfortunately, a number of parents have been observed entering the bus circle before 9:00 AM and while students are unloading from busses. In addition, some cars have passed school buses while their lights were blinking which is illegal and a moving violation. For the safety of our students, please be sure to use the Hall Avenue entrance if you are dropping off your child before 9:00 AM. If you arrive after 9:00 AM, you will need to find alternate parking and escort your child into the school. The details of our practices at Waverly School are outlined on page 5 of the Family Handbook. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call Jeff Melendez at 914-793-6130, ext. 5502. Thank you, in advance for your cooperation.

    Yearbooks and Booster Ads
    by Dr. Jeffrey Melendez - Friday, February 12, 2016, 2:40 PM
     

    The Waverly PTA is now taking orders for the 2015-2016 Yearbook. The yearbook is a great way to preserve your child’s memory of their Kindergarten and 1 st grade experience. Our yearbook is filled with candid photos of classroom activities and school events, as well as individual and class photos.

    Back by popular demand, we will be featuring a special Booster Section. Purchase space to send a congratulatory message to your child for all of their hard work. Or, if you are a parent/business owner or know of one, please take the opportunity to help promote your business to our Waverly families.

    If you would like to order a booster for the yearbook, please contact Mia Riad.

    For more information, visit the yearbook page on the website.
