Dear Parents/Guardians:

As March is upon us we look forward to important events this month and next.  We hope one of those events is warmer weather!  We are currently planning to present our Performing Arts Department production of The Pirates of Penzance and we look forward to the PTA Basket Auction taking place March 28th.  We are also in the process of conducting the NYC Department of Education Parent Survey and will conduct student and staff surveys within a few weeks.

This camp is not only new and exciting, but it will also be a great way to build new friendships with teachers and other kids from our school community from grades 4th to 8th.


We are offering the following activities:

In addition, there will be staff to assist in any summer homework assignments that your child will need help with if they want it.

Look for the hard copy being sent home this week with your child.

Thank you,

Deric Borrero, Assistant Principal
