Parent Letter #13 was sent home with students last week.  As the 2015 NYS ELA and Math Tests are now behind us, we will be busy administering end-of-year assessments and compiling promotional portfolios for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  The NYCDOE has multiple promotional criteria, and in order to be promoted to the next grade, students must successfully meet the following points.
  1. Attendance
  2. State, city and school-wide assessments
  3. Promotional portfolio

You can download a copy of the parent letter at the link below.  Please, ensure that your child/children come to school every day and on time.  Thank you for your continued support.

Goal setting is annual ritual at PS 72.  Goal setting is a multi-tiered effort beginning with students setting academic goals, and continues in classes and on grades.  Each year we must set school-wide goals that are a part of our School-wide Comprehensive Educational Plan, or SCEP.  The students, staff and School Leadership Team all contributed in drafting these goals.  These goals are available for download below.  They are organized by each goal as it stated on the SCEP, in more friendly terms, intended outcomes and action plan.  We encourage you to discuss these goals with your children and staff members.  Thank you for your continued support.

On Sunday, October 19, 2014, PS 72's No Place for Hate Committee partnered with volunteers from the Anti-Defamation League to celebrate a "Day of Difference".  Volunteers, students and family members discussed techniques to confront bullying and worked together to paint panels within the theme, which will be assembled in a display at PS 72.  Look for an announcement when the installation is ready for viewing!!!  Bronx 12 reported on this special event, and a news clip can be viewed on their website:   .   A big thank you goes to Ms. Brugman, Parent Coordinator, and Melissa Beatty, Guidance Counselor, coordinators of the NPFH committee, the student committee members and their families in attendance.  You can download an article of the event below.
