Dear Families,

Congratulations to our students who performed last night at part two of our Honoring the Dream celebration! Students in Helen, Kiara, Jess & Louise, Susan & Jeanette, Jeff, Miriam, Taylor & Gabby, and Carlos & Ashita’s classes performed and did a beautiful job. Bravo! 

Next Wednesday, January 31 is a half-day 11:30am pickup for all students.

While there has been a little progress on the building next to the schoolyard, the work is still not final. Once work is completed, the DOB and DOE must certify the area safe before the yard will reopen. I will let you know as I get more information, and I appreciate your continued patience as this situation is entirely out of my control.

Your child will receive a housing form in their backpack today or next week. We need forms to be completed and returned for every student (not just per household).

Next Tuesday, January 30 Joyce will send home new spring semester Metrocards for eligible students. These will become active on February 1 and will go through the last day of school. They cannot be replaced if lost or damaged so please keep them safe. Also Joyce has sent health insurance records forms to some families, please return them ASAP if you received the form in your child’s backpack.

Mark your calendars:

  • Wednesday, January 31 – Half-Day professional development, all students are dismissed at 11:30am
  • Friday, February 2 – Make-up and sibling photo day, advanced sign up required here
  • Monday, February 19 – Friday, February 23 – No School, Mid-Winter Break

Enjoy your weekend!

Warmly,
Maria
