Principal’s Newsletter March/April 2014

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.

Attention Parents/Guardians!

You have received the 2013-2014 NYC Department of Education Parent Survey. Please take the time to fill out the survey and have your child return it to school in the provided envelope as our PTA has graciously agreed to reward the first seven classes per grade that achieve a 100% return rate with a pizza party.
