Dear Ward Families,
On December 4th, our Superintendent of schools, Dr. Brian Osborne, will be spending the day at Ward School.  He will be visiting classrooms throughout the course of the day and ending his visit with a Town Hall meeting for the Ward School community from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.  You are invited to attend this Town Hall meeting to hear about and discuss the exciting plans Dr. Osborne has for our school district.  He is excited and enthusiastic to speak with you all and share his thoughts and ideas.
 
I hope you will be able to join us.
 
Sincerely,
Franco J. Miele, Principal

William B. Ward Elementary School is located in New Rochelle, New York. A strong academic program not only stresses mastery of basic skills - reading, writing, and mathematics - but includes a comprehensive social studies program and an in-depth inquiry based science program. 

Ward School is a warm, positive, energetic and enthusiastic place where all children can reach their full potential as students academically, socially, and emotionally.  Diversity is one of our strengths.  Building upon this, Ward School strives to "produce responsible, self-sufficient citizens who possess the self-esteem, initiative, skills, and wisdom to continue individual growth, pursue knowledge, develop aesthetic sensibilities, and value cultural diversity by providing intellectually challenging educational programs".

Students in all schools recently participated in the Hour of Code, an exciting learning event designed to expose students to the basics and importance of computer programming. Tens of millions of students in more than 180 countries are expected to take part in the initiative.

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.

School Community Health Advisory Influenza Vaccine Fall 2014/Winter 2015

The district wishes to ensure that the importance of getting the Influenza vaccine does not get lost in all of the media and public discussion of Enterovirus D68 and even Ebola. See Frank Bruni’s recent NY Times column,
“Scarier Than Ebola”:  Click Here


Influenza is a serious and potentially deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that ALL individuals 6 six months of age and older be vaccinated against Influenza.


The Flu virus changes genetically from year to year, so last year's Flu vaccine will not reliably protect you from this year's circulating Flu strains. Everyone needs to be vaccinated annually.
