School Announcements
Teacher Recognition
Congratulations to Joan Kelly, Travell's Teacher of the Year. Please join us to recognize her great work on May 10th at 7 pm at the Education Center on Cottage Place.

Ms. Kelly motivates her students to be their best and her faith in them contributes to their self-esteem. She is warm, caring and fair to her students and she builds strong relationships with them. Her students are motivated, engaged and encouraged to solve problems and take risks in a safe environment.

Ms. Kelly is one of the advisors of the Travell Environmental Club and is active in encouraging our students to recycle and protect the Earth. She was instrumental in the school’s Earth Day Celebration where each student learned about trees and received a tree seedling.

Earth Day - Friday April 22
Travell School's Environmental Club will be giving a "Trees" assembly for Earth Day after which every student will receive a tree seedling along with a "How to Plant a Tree Seedling" brochure.  Planting trees is one of the easiest ways to fight climate change. Trees clean the air, water and bring birds to our neighborhoods. We hope all our students find a place to plant their tree in their neighborhood.

In addition, Ridgewood's Shade Tree Commission has planted a beautiful dogwood outside our main entrance. Many thanks to Mrs. Tracy for organizing the tree planting.
 
 
Author visit - Cynthia Lord
Cynthia Lord visits Travell School on April 20th. Her first novel, Rules, was published in 2006 and was a 2007 Newberry Honor Book and winner of the Schneider Family Book Award. Thanks to Mrs. Antonellis for making all the arrangements. We loved the visit and learned so much about writing.
Tanglewood Marionettes

Tanglewood Marionettes shared their beautiful marionettes and their colorful sets with the kindergarten and second grade for a fun theater experience. They enjoyed the story of Cinderella. Thanks to the Home and School Association for bringing this wonderful program to us.
