Week of Feb 11

Good Morning Conwell Tigers!!  


Big week at the Tiger Den down on Bright Street.  This week we continue through the 3rd Marking Period with an eye towards the Spring.   We have been very fortunate with minimal snow accumulations thus far but the weather is still pretty chilly out there.  I am really asking your concerted effort to make sure that the children are dressed appropriately with hats, gloves, and warm coats.


The Lost and Found has been very well organized and it is clear that many of your have made investments to its existance as without lost clothes, there would be no Lost and Found.  Why don’t you come on in and check it out if you are missing things. Also continue to label all clothing so we are able to return it to its rightful owner.


So… ELA and Math Extended Day continues on Monday and Tuesday..  Thursday is ValenKINDs Day…. and the 100th day of school…. Can you think of 100 ways to be KIND?   I can think of one… Free dress down if you wear red to school…


On Friday.. We are going to commemorate the 100th Day of School and Presidents Day!!   Staff and students are encouraged to dress up either as if you are 100 years old (no botox please..) or your favorite US President.


Tiger Cubz rehearsal on Thursday after school.  No Engineering Club this week.


Folks….I mean it…   the children are NICER,  KINDER, and more RESPECTFUL because of our vision and our partnership with you…   


Thank you and have a fantastic Sunday..

Congratulations Conwell Kidz

Good Morning Conwell Tigers!!!  


Tis cold outside and windy out there so make sure you are bundled up in hats, gloves, and heavy coats.


I hope you enjoyed the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend.  


I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Conwell Kidz, Mrs. Oliver, Ms. Montanez, and Ms. Funicello on their amazing performance of Mary Poppins, Jr. at the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta this past weekend.  The Kidz performance lifted the program to new heights as Conwell Kidz Amiyah Goode’s portrayal of Bert, earned her the Overall Outstanding Female Festival Performance Award. She was the first elementary school student to ever win this award.  She was 1 of 6,529 performers and also qualified for a possible spot on the iTheatrics Choreography DVD. Lola Castellano and Emilo Castillo brought home the JTF All-Star awards and the Tech Team of Devon Flores, Lauryn Egar, Eva Parkhurst, and Olivia Rivera-Vasquez took 5th overall in their category.   

Congrats to all who participated and thank you to the parents for their support.

 Please be advised that there is Cubz Choir Practice on Thursday after school until 3:30.  Engineering Club Group B on Friday until 3:45.

PTA Winter/Spring 2019 After School Enrichment Club registration begins tonight at 8pm for PS3 students. For detailed course descriptions and to register please visit th PTA website:

Week of 1/7

Good Afternoon Conwell Tigers and Happy 3 Kings Day, “Un Dia de los Reyes”,


I hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous day.   After so much rain, we should be outside today taking in this beautiful afternoon.  We have a few important announcements for the week.


Wednesday, January 9, all are invited to the PTA Family Science Night at 6pm in the cafeteria.  After a brief meeting, children will be engaged in hands-on, discovery based science activites.


There will be JTF rehearsal on Tuesday from 3-5 followed immediately by a mandatory parent meeting for children who will be attending the festival.  In addition there will be rehearsal on Wednesday and Thursday from 3-6.


Conwell Cubz will resume on Thursday, January 17.  There will not be Cubz rehearsal this week.


Engineering Club Group A will meet on Friday until 3:45 pm.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Conwell Tiger Staffulty, parents, and entire student body for all of your support through 2018.   I believe, as a school community, we are poised to excel beyond all expectations in 2019. Our community has been faced with some very difficult challenges over the years and I am truly humbled how we come together in the face of adversity to tackle and overcome these challenges.  Most importantly I am so appreciative of the full support that has been given in such a short period of time for my career endeavor of building a community of Respect, Appreciation, Care, and Empathy. It is amazing to see how powerful it can be when we all put forth effort towards a common goal.  Our children really get it!!!


Be Nice, Be Kind, and Be Respectful
