Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

New York State has designated Thursday, April 23 as “Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” Unfortunately, April 23rd is also one of three consecutive days of the New York State Assessment in Mathematics for all students in grades 3-8. Although North Colonie has a long tradition of participating in the “Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” we believe it is imperative for all of our students to be in school in order to ensure the most positive, consistent testing environment for all. As such, we will not be supporting this activity district-wide, K-12, this year. »READ MORE
