  • Welcome Back to School!

    Join us in partnership as we kick off a new school year and prepare all students to be "Future-Ready".  With a shared vision developed with YOU - our community -  we are focused on seven core competencies representing our Profile of a Nyack Graduate: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Compassion, Cultural Competence, Content Mastery.

    "In our schools, we are committed to the belief that all students possess great natural abilities. At the most fundamental level, the focus on education has to be on creating conditions in which students will want and be able to learn.  When children are encouraged to be curious and explore, the learning process opens up to new possibilities."    - James Montesano, Superintendent of Schools

    Together, we are building bridges for today's students to cross into tomorrow's world with equity, innovation and optimism.

Donation Station

DONATION STATION is a service provided by all FRCs to help families with specific items in times of great need or crisis.  For example: school supplies, clothing, book bags, and furniture.  Contact your FRC Coordinator for more information.

Estación de Donación
El objeto de este proyecto es para ayudar las familias con necesidades específicas - de una forma anónima.

La forma en que funciona es así: cuando el centro de recursos de la familia oye acerca de un niño o una familia que necesitan de algo, se envía un mensaje de correo electrónico a todos los padres que han ofrecido estar en la lista. Quien tiene el elemento necesario, golpea "responder a todos" y así todos saben que estar solucionado.

No dude en ponerse en contacto con el centro si usted necesita donaciones o  si le gustaría estar en la lista por favor, enviarme un correo electrónico a  rberlin@nyackschools.org

 Rachel Berlin - Coordinadora Telefono - (845) 353-7268
