A Message from Mr. Daliposki!
I hope that your Spring Recess is restful and relaxing! As we enter the last long stretch before summer vacation, the next few months will be filled with excitement and celebrations - let’s start with the celebrations!
The week of April 3rd was National Assistant Principals Week. This week and every day, we celebrate our very own Ms. Dentrone and Ms. Cohen. Both Ms. Dentrone and Ms. Cohen have worked tirelessly during the day and after hours to ensure the safety and health of all students and staff. They are both fantastic staff members I have had the pleasure and honor of working with for the past three years. I am grateful to have them be part of this school and my cabinet.

I will hold an informational session the week we return from break.
NYC School Survey
The 2023 NYC School Survey has been extended to April 20th. Your voice is essential to improve our school and community. You can access the survey online using this link: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/about-us/reports/school-quality/nyc-school-survey
How to Access the Survey
Parents/Guardians need only their child’s nine-digit Student Identification (OSIS) Number to complete the survey. Parents will enter a lowercase “f” and their child’s nine-digit number as the survey code (e.g., f123456789) to complete their unique survey. Families can find their student’s ID number on a report card, a student ID card, or their NYCSA account. Families should contact their child’s school if they need support identifying their child’s Student Identification Number.
Families can also take the survey by logging on to their NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) account, where they can see their student’s grades, test scores, and more.
NYS ELA Testing
The annual New York State English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics tests for students in grades 3-8 will be administered to all students later this spring. These tests are required by the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and are designed to provide important information about whether students are prepared to progress through school and graduate with the critical thinking, problem-solving, and reasoning skills they need for long-term success in school, college, and careers, and to support students in their pursuit of economic security and a choice-filled life.
These tests are just one of several measures our schools use to assess student progress: grades, report cards, writing samples, projects, assignments, and other performance-based student work are equally important. For information and answers to some of your questions, you can visit https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learning/testing/student-participation-guide.
For any questions, please get in touch with Ms. Cohen or me.
