Update for the SRLA Community
Happy Summer, Everyone
It has been a memorable school year, to say the least. Thank you to the entire SRLA community for helping all of us and our students get through this pandemic year.
Please look forward to my summer letter next month in which we can, hopefully, shed more insight into what our classrooms and 2021-2022 school year may look like!
Things already on the drawing board for next year include:
  • SRLA production of "Into the Woods". Tryouts to be announced in September; all are welcome for on-stage and behind the stage spots!
  • Afterschool Enrichments will return!
  • Three-season athletics
  • Thanksgiving Basketball Tournament
  • STEM competition 
  • Literary Magazine: The Blurb
  • and so much more!
See you all on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. Happy Last Day of School!
-Principal Underwood
Track + Field Ends on a High Note
Congratulations to the SRLA Track team for their dedication and commitment over the entire season and congratulations to all those who participated in the Newark CYO Track and Field Championships last weekend!
We had a very strong showing in the championships and came away with a total of 14 medals -- our best showing in 6 years. The day was highlighted with two very exciting Sprint Medley Relay Races with the 5th/6th Boys and Girls relay teams in very close races.
Last night, we were able to gather together at Meisel Park for an end-of-season celebration with a yummy spread of hot dogs, burgers, and wings and a visit from the ice cream truck, too! Thank you to all the families who attended and to the coaches and parent volunteers who pitched in to make it a fun and successful season!
Coming up in the fall: Cross Country, so let's keep those kids moving this summer!
We hope you'll be joining us this Sunday for the school's BIGGEST fundraiser, Wish Upon a Star!
