Students will receive (4) test kits per month. There will no longer to in-school surveillance testing for Covid-19.
The DOE has a new communication system that we will be piloting this school year. The contact information pulls from your New York Schools Account. It is of the utmost importance that we have 100% of families set up this account - NYCSA: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learning/student-journey/nyc-schools-account
This provides class information, transportation, grades, etc. and must have your most up to date emergency contact information and who is permitted to pick up your child from school.
If you need assistance, please contact our Parent Coordinator Ms. Olga Flores at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-898-6973 x1031.
Thank you for your continued support and looking forward to another wonderful school year.
Laura Miniero, Principal
Thank you PTA!!
The PTA decorated the main lobby and hallways of the school, hung banners to welcome back students, and helped us deliver the many many bags of supplies. We so appreciate you!
Letter from the Chancellor
Welcome to the 2022–2023 school year!
As the father of four children, I still remember the excitement of September and my kids’ jitters over what the new school year would bring. Would they like their teachers? Would it be easy to make new friends? Would they do well in their classes? I reassured them that the adults in their school would cherish them as much as I did at home.
Now, as I prepare to experience my first “first day of school” as Chancellor, I am grateful for
you and for our educators, who are as excited as I am to welcome your children back. I also
appreciate that in sending your children into our classrooms, you are placing great trust in us— trust that we will challenge your children intellectually so they can live out their wildest dreams. Trust that we will keep them safe and help them grow as human beings. Trust that they will graduate with a pathway to a rewarding career and enjoy long-term economic security. Trust that we will teach your children how to be a positive force for change in our world. I am committed to doing all of this—and more.
My team and I have spent the summer reimagining the student experience so that it better serves your children. Literacy, which is the foundational building block of all learning, will be a major focus this school year. We are transforming how we teach reading by implementing a highquality, phonics-based literacy program in all elementary schools. We are extending learning beyond the four walls of the classroom, offering students regular visits to local museums, parks, and all the incredible resources our great city has to offer. At the same time, we are improving students’ digital learning experiences.
This year, we are also offering more of the learning opportunities you have requested, enhancing the way we serve all children. This includes an increase in Community Schools, Gifted & Talented programs, bilingual education programs, and programs to improve long-term academic outcomes for students with disabilities. Wellness and its role in student success is another priority you’ll be hearing more about.
I can’t write to families without recognizing you as the lifeblood of our school communities and our true partners in your child’s education. Be on the lookout for improved ways to access the information and support you need to help your children succeed. This will include expanded language access supports for families who speak languages other than English and more opportunities for us to work together.
