Principal's Corner



       As we look at the wonderful month  of March, let us examine some of the upcoming events that will help make this a very special month for our children.   March is Women in History Month.  We will be researching the contributions of many women who have played a significant role in our nation's history.  The Parent-Teacher Conference Day is on Thursday, March 9th, with afternoon (1:00-3:00 pm) and evening (5:00-7:30 pm) hours available to meet with your child's teacher(s) and obtain student report cards.   I would ask that you spend some time that afternoon or evening completing the annual parent survey.  It will be handed to you by the teacher and you are asked to fill in the information before leaving.  It is important to our school that we get maximum participation for this activity.  A reminder that dismissal is at 11:45 am on March 9th.  More information will be sent home as we near this important event.  This month we are also introducing all of our PreK-5 students to various dance forms as we partner with the Williamsburg Movement and Arts Center for this once a week for 6 weeks program.  We are also partnering with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden by participating in their Project Green Reach initiative.  This will involve classes 4-410 and 5-312.  In addition, during this month we will also begin getting our Grade 3-5 students ready to take the New York State ELA tests on March 28, 29, and 30.  I continue to remind you to please make sure your child arrives ON TIME for 8:00 am each morning.  It is so important that the children are here and go to their classroom together with their teacher and classmates.   Also, I ask that you please make sure and check your child's homework for completeness each night before signing the homework planner.  This is important in monitoring your child's progress during the year.  I look forward to your ongoing support and participation in the life of our school.  Thank you for all that you do and for your attention in these matters.
