RVSP for Relatives and Special Friends Day
Relatives and Special Friends Day is a day when any relative (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, etc.) or special friends of our children get the opportunity to visit our school and spend the morning with the special children in their lives.

Guests must arrive between 8:45 – 9:00 a.m.  The event ends at 12:00 p.m. (December 5th is a half day). 
The day will consist of a Welcome Presentation in the Auditorium (with a new program this year, some surprise guests, and a special raffle), Classroom Visits and a Lobby Reception.

Because of school security, RSF Day is a ticketed event.  To get a ticket for no more than TWO guests, please RSVP by November 24TH  to  Supply the name of your guests, as well as your child’s grade/teacher.  
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us.

Safe Haven Basketball Parent Info

Dear District Three  Parents:
girls and boys ages 8 to 18 who attend school in District Three.  This is a very popular program and we would like to encourage the involvement of new families.
Now in its twenty-seventh year, the League is a community-based children's recreational program that was started by Upper West Side parents.  Games and practices are on Saturdays or Sundays at public school gyms located on the Upper West Side starting December 6 and continuing until March 15.
(Note: Children who are 8 years old start the weekend of January 10 and end the weekend of March 22.)
The fee is $140; full and partial scholarship assistance is available to players who attend elementary and middle public schools and to players with special needs.  No elementary or middle school child is kept from participating because of inability to pay.  All are welcome to join.
To ensure your child's place:
We're looking forward to a wonderful season and hope that your son or daughter can be part of our basketball community.
Eileen Palley

NOTE: The Wellness Committee at MSC asks us to be mindful of the amount of sugar and any artificial ingredients in all of the donated products, whether freshly baked or store bought. Please try to use whole wheat flower instead of white flower whenever possible, natural sugar instead of processed sugar, applesauce instead of dairy. Cupcakes and cakes are delicious without frosting too, but all items are welcome.
All items can be left in outside the administrative office on the 5th floor beginning Thursday, September 18th at drop off. There will be mobile carts. We can take donations even when arriving to school to pick up your child durning the sale.
If you bring an item that needs utensils, please include them in your donation, and please try and minimize the amount of plastic baggies used in packaging your items. If you can package items individually, that would be great. Otherwise we will take care of this at school.
(Please mark all containers with your name, floor, and room number and we will make every effort to return these to you by Wednesday, Sept 24th)
