Wow, where did October go?
It seems like it was only just yesterday that we were all welcoming in pumpkin spice season.
Well, now that November 2019 is upon us, it’s time for all of us to get ready to roll our clocks back to Standard Time, verify our local polling sites for Election Day, and make sure that nothing runs a-fowl of our Thanksgiving Recess plans.
Or, we can, y’know, be like this guy:
NYC School Calendar—November 2019
*Some notes about this month’s schedule:

Elementary Admissions Events
Planning to have your child attend elementary school (Grades Pre-K–5) in fall 2020?
In early November 2019, the DOE will host info sessions for families seeking to learn more about the City’s elementary school admissions process, including Gifted & Talented programs. For more information about these events and DOE admissions overall, please visit our Kindergarten Admissions webpage.
That’s all for this month. We hope you have a great November!
