Message from the PTG President:

Dear West Siders,

Welcome back! We hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Spring break with your families.

Before the break we had our annual Sports/Game night at WSS and want to thank Mrs. Claudia Marino and Mrs. Christine Masata for chairing such a fun event. Dinner was delicious and everyone had a ball!

We would like to thank those who attended our April PTG meeting and would like to remind everyone to attend our final PTG meeting of the school year on Monday, May 8th @9:30am. This is our thank you breakfast/meeting and there is a lot of information to share. Please do all you can to attend this very important meeting. We would love to see everyone at our meeting, including those who chaired events this school year.

Please visit our website, like our Facebook page and attend our final meeting of the school year.

Warmest Regards,


Sports/Game Thank you: We would like to thank all those who attended Sports/Game Night. Everyone had a fun time playing games, enjoying Newcomb in the gym, and having dinner together! We would also like to thank Mr. Simon & President of our PTG, Ana Shammah, for their help in making this event run smoothly. Thank you Mr. Walsh for keeping our families engaged in a fun, new exciting game in the gym! Last but not least, our volunteers: Kim Testa, Karolina Kotek, Andrea Mannino, Natalia Milhim, Shannon, Kelly & Erin Gallagher Michael and Tommy Degnan & Robert Shammah. Thank you for all your help and once again making this another great event at West Side!

-Claudia Marino & Christine Masata

Earth Day Birthday Celebration: Earth Day birthday is today but due to the unfavorable weather forecast, Suzi Berg and some parent volunteers have scheduled a seeding activity for Wednesday, April 26th during the children’s recess time. What a great way to celebrate Earth Day birthday and get the kids excited for Spring and our West Side Garden. If you would like to help out please contact Suzi Berg

Staff Appreciation Luncheon: Time to show the West Side School Staff just how much they are appreciated. Our annual Staff Luncheon will be held on Monday, May 1, 2017.  An assortment of foods, desserts and beverages are needed. If you have not already signed up and would like to contribute, please contact Nicole Boutis at (516-287-4382) or Jackie Loeffler at

(516-662-7344). Your help is needed to make this an event to remember!

SAVE THE DATE: WEST SIDE RUN IS SUNDAY, MAY 21ST!! Please get your sponsorships in for the West Side Run.  The final deadline for Business Sponsors is Friday, April 28th. Our goal for the Run this year is to raise $25,000.  The money raised will go to a special outdoor play space that the PTG is planning.  We need family sponsors to donate this year more than ever!  Help us reach this goal – we have raised $10,000 to date.  The Run is Sunday, May 21st.  Join us to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the West Side Run!!  See flyer below. Any questions, please reach out to Cat Bauer

DNA Lab programs and events: We are fortunate to have the DNA Labs in our own backyard and they provide wonderful programs for the kids throughout the year. Please check out some of the exciting programs available by clicking the link to the Sat DNA events:

It turns out that the May 13th event (ages 10-13) is already sold out, but there’s still space for the Sat. Jun 3rd event.

Talent Show: Our annual West Side Talent Show will be held on Friday, May 12th @7pm at the CSH High School Performing Arts Center (PAC). Please bring your family to cheer on our West Side kids. There will be a PTG sponsored Ice Cream Social for all, immediately after the show in the high school cafe. The Talent Show is less than a month away FRIDAY, MAY 12.  We have a tremendous turnout of applications and the first rehearsal went great!!  The quality of the show is up to you.  The more you practice, the better the show will be.

I will send to your email your assigned day for the May 3rd and 4th rehearsal by the end of next week.  If you do not receive an email, please contact me immediately so I can check to see if I have the correct spelling of your email.

•**A note to all 6th grade parents, we are looking for a parent volunteer to create the 6th grade group act. It can be a dance, song, etc. (6th grade students may be in the group act as well as their own act.)  It would be open to all 6th graders (boys and girls) please contact me asap if you would like to volunteer at  If we don’t get a volunteer, there will be no 6th grade group act

Student Volunteers are not required to come to the 2 rehearsals at Westside, but are required to be there for the dress rehearsal at the PAC on 5/11.  

It is so exciting and the feeling in the air is electrified.  Now it’s up to you to make the show a success…I know you will!! Talent Show 2017 Here we come!!!!
