Congratulations to our fifth grade class. As you leave us to attend George Washington Middle School or another middle school, the staff at Costello wishes you only the best. Please continue to practice our PBS goals; be respectful, be responsible, and do your best. I know that wherever you go, you will do us proud.


Thank you PTO board members, Mrs. Galvez, president; Mrs. Huxhold, vice-president; Mrs. Schemenauer, treasurer, and Mrs. Iacono for providing Costello School many fun activities this year.
Parents, please plan on joining PTO next school year so that the PTO can provide more functions for the students and families. Don’t be afraid to get involved. It is your commitment to Costello that will make it a great place for your child.

Just a reminder, every family must register in August for the new school year in August. The dates are August 4th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. , August 5th and 6th from 3 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. You will need to bring in 5 proofs of residency when you come.
If you have a child that will be entering kindergarten and you did not pick up a registration folder, please stop by the school office. We will be happy to give you one. It will make registration move a little faster for you.
Registration packets will be sent to your homes during the month of July. Please keep a lookout for them. If you bring those papers, your registration will not be as long. Without them, you will need to complete the entire set. Please include your emergency numbers. They are so important. If your child is ill and we cannot get in touch with you, your emergency contact helps out immensely. Please keep phone numbers current.


The Costello School office will be opened from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 pm. from June 10th through June 23rd. If you need anything, please be sure to stop by during the summer hours.


Our summer school program will begin on August 5th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. If your child is enrolled in the program, you will be receiving a letter in the mail during the month of July. Please be sure that your child attends summer school regularly. It is important that they are in attendance.


Thank you for a wonderful school year. Our children worked hard this year and many have earned some time off this summer.

If you are travelling, please remain safe.

On behalf of the staff of Costello School, we wish everyone a fun filled summer. Please remember to read and remain safe. We will be looking forward to your return in August.

The PTO is looking for officers. If you have an interest or would like to know more, please contact the school.
