Principal's Corner





This month we hope to finally transition from winter to spring as we return from the spring recess!  Some highlights for the next few weeks:

  • We continue to have our  wonderful library afterschool program serving approximately 30 students on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2:45-4:30 pm;

  • Our Math afterschool program will continue serving 70 students on Wednesdays and Thursdays getting the children ready for the NYS Math tests on May 1 & 2;

  • Our CASA City Council grant for the arts, courtesy of Councilmember Antonio Reynoso, is currently serving 40 Grade 1-5 students each week with a new menu of classes to start the next two weeks.  Grades 1 & 2 will be able to apply for the "Dance on Broadway" session that will meet on Wednesdays from 2:45-4:15 pm.  Grades 3-5 will have the opportunity to apply for the "Science Through Sculpture and Painting sessions to be held on Thursdays from 2:45-4:15 pm.  Both of these programs run for 10 weeks and will be filled on a first come-first served basis. Please return the school form sent home on April 9th if your child is interested;

  • The NYS ELA tests for Grades 3-5 will take place on April 11th and 12th.  This year there will only be 2 days of testing for the students;

  • There will be a PTA meeting on Wednesday, April 23, at 4:30 pm.  School uniforms for 2018-19 and building safety concerns will be major topics for discussion;

  • The very successful High School Heroes initiative will be returning on April 26th to provide an opportunity for our PreK-Grade2 students to have lessons presented by students from Brooklyn Prep High School;

  • Please check your child's class link for exciting news about curriculum and class trip information.  I  remind you to make every effort to please make sure that 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.   If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact myself or the parent coordinator, Nancy DeName.
