Our Monthly Message from Principal Medina
Esteemed PS 85 Family,
We are off to an amazing start now well into October and already celebrating what the fall has to offer!
Name that Pumpkin
To continue with a successful academic year, please make sure that students are reading every day for at least 30 minutes. They are all part of the 85 Book Challenge! All students should have received Scholastic books and will continue to receive them on a monthly basis. Teachers are also sending books home from the classroom library.
The Attendance for October is 93% . Let's continue to prioritize education by sending your child to school every day. Remember when it comes to education: Attend today, Achieve tomorrow!
