Happy Spring—Finally!!

We are so excited for everything May brings.  We reap the benefits of hard work, dedication, and commitment to learning. This warm weather is great for our spirits, and you might find us outdoors more.  Physical Education class has been outside, we’re reading in the nature center, and we’re working hard at sprucing up our courtyards.  Our flowers are blooming, and the vegetable gardens go in this week as well!

I’d like to remind everyone returning to Somers for the 2018-19 school year to register online.  This process MUST be completed.  Once complete, we are able to assign your student to a classroom.  Please take time to register at

If you have moved, provide the office with proof of address and name of the forwarding school.  Completing the process sooner rather than later is important for our planning purposes.

If you attend on an affidavit, that needs to be completed annually.  Please see Mrs. Scheviak in the office.

Summer school for Somers Elementary students is at Harvey Elementary.  It runs June 20 through July 24th, Monday through Friday 8:00-12:00 . If your child was recommended for summer school, registration can be found at  Registration closes May 11th.  Summer playground is available at Harvey Elementary as well.  This is a convienent option for parents who can not pick up at 12:00 daily.
