Dear Parents,

 

I want to take this opportunity to welcome you and your family of what promises to be a wonderful school year 2018-2019!

 

We look forward to meeting the new members of our community and re-connecting with those who are returning. We recognize that our children benefit from both the home and school partnership. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

 

We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers

3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4) Shares school experiences with you, so that you are aware of his/her school life

5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college

 

Please consider joining our Parent -Teacher Association, School Leadership Team, and Parents as Learning Partners. Our Parents as Learning Partners is always the first Friday of every month. On these Fridays, parents can participate in an informal independent reading activity, writing celebration, math activity, and/or a project-based activity. It is a very special time for parents to come into their child’s classroom. All of our children benefit from having more adults to interact with and our whole school community benefits from increased parent involvement. Please mark it on your calendars.

 

In addition, we will be conducting parent workshops on a monthly basis with topics of your interest. Please stay connected to the school through our brand new PS94 website: https://ps94K.echalksites.com

 

The hours that your children are with us each day are extremely important. Please be reminded that school hours are from 8:00-2:20p.m. Cafeteria doors open for breakfast at 7:30a.m. Our school doors open at 8:00a.m and breakfast is provided to every student who wishes to have breakfast in the classroom.

 

Let us all commit to having a wonderful school year, setting everyone, both students and teachers up for success. You may contact and meet your child’s teacher on Tuesdays from 3:00-3:30p.m. or make an appointment to meet on another day and time.

 

We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Janette Caban

Principal
