Dear Parents and Guardians,
Happy New Year! We are so excited to welcome 2020 as a new opportunity to grow and learn. We are less than three months away from the New York State Tests!. With that being said, we are continuing with rigorous instruction and tasks in order to prepare the students for the upcoming state tests. Their homework will be more intense as it will mirror their tasks on the state test. In addition, their reading time will be extended to 40 minutes in order to build their stamina. It is important that students have all the support in school and at home during this period to help ensure their success. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting with parents every Tuesday at 2:35pm.
