Message from the Principal

Dear Students, Parents and Families,

The 2018-2019 school year has gotten off to an amazing start.  Many of your children have participated in assessments that will allow us to measure the progress they make during the school year.  Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for November 15, 2018.  Check out our calendar.  First marking period report cards will be distributed at conferences.  I am pleased to inform you that grades 3-5 students posted a 5% gain on the 2018 NYS ELA Test and 9% on the Math Test.  If you have any questions or are in need of support, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Veronica Brugman, at 718-822-5312, ext. 1081.  Thank you for your continued support.

Educationally yours,

Ms. Margarita Colón
