Meet Our Artist-In-Residence: Fiona Hopkins-Rothenberg!

This year I am excited to have Fiona Hopkins- Rothenberg back at Huguenot Nursery School as our Artist in Residence. As we work together to get this program up and running, we are starting small and Fiona is just working with the full day classes. Eventually we hope to have all Huguenot children working with Fiona.

My name is Fiona Hopkins-Rothenberg, the children know me as Miss Fiona. I am the artist in residence at Huguenot Nursery School. Huguenot was where I initially began my teaching career. I was hired as an assistant in Mrs. Teubl’s classroom back in 2005. I eventually taught my own 3 and 4 year old classes before moving to Brooklyn for 5 years. Huguenot has always been a second home for me and after all these years I am so thrilled to be back.

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

It was wonderful seeing so many of you at Parents' Night Thursday. For those of you who were unable to make it, we missed you but rest assured that your child's teacher will let you know any important information that was discussed.
September 11th and 12th was an exciting day in the lives of 173 children at Huguenot Nursery School! Those were the first days of school. As I walk around the school visiting the classrooms it's hard to believe that we have only been back at school for 6 days. For the most part, all the children have made a happy and successful transition from the lazy days of summer to the more structured days of fall. Of course, as expected, the 2's classes will take some extra time.

Huguenot Church Invites You to Celebrate

A hundred years ago our church began to lay the foundation for our beautiful sanctuary. The congregation was grow­ing and needed more space than the "Little Red Church" offered. The setting of the cornerstone was led by the oldest and youngest members of the church, Alfred L. Hammett and Bruce Currie, with a silver trowel of mortar! The photo (below, left) shows the Cornerstone Celebration, led by Pastor Lewis G. Leary, on Children's Day, June 10, 1917.

May Newsletter, 4's Sing-a-long, Summer Camp Updates

In writing this final 2016/2017 edition of our school newsletter, I am once again reminded how quickly a school year can pass. The year is generally filled with contrasts: happy times/sad times; noisy times/quiet times; sunny days/cloudy days; successful experiences/ failures. This year probably was no exception.  Whichever situation we were facing, growth, continuation, understanding and education was ever present.
