We have many goals for your children this year:

· to feel welcomed, safe, and secure in our learning environment

· to learn something new every day

· to meet and exceed their learning targets

· to participate in service-learning projects

· to create works of art, dance, and sing

· to build friendships and socialize

· to develop technological skills and critical thinking skills

· and to be inspired to lead; we will have a Student Council in all grades K-5. One student from each class will be selected as a representative and will participate in weekly meetings making important decisions about student life at P.S. 212Q.
