Letter from Claire - May 8

Dear Families,

We made it! Standardized testing for ELA and Math are over. Thank you Kerry for organizing and planning such a smooth two weeks. Thank you for your cooperation and support in clearing the hallways on testing days.

 

Staff appreciation is this week and our wonderful families and the PA Committee are planning special ways to celebrate. As you drop off, or pick up, please take a moment to thank our staff for all their hard work, dedication and commitment to our students.

 

This Week…

We are very excited to host our 6th MSC & NY Sun Works Youth Conference “Discovering Sustainability Science” on May 9th.  The event will be held at Symphony Space (95th and Broadway). We are thrilled that 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will travel to watch and present.  All K-3 classrooms will stream the conference live on their smart boards. Each class will pick a session to watch and we will share photos and quotes from K-3 class discussions on our website.

 

Everyone can watch it live: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/fRNgJX8QVB9

From the Classroom: 

Our sixth graders participated in a gallery walk where they shared their research papers and visual aids. As students walked around the room, they collected new information from their classmates and shared glows about the projects they viewed.

 

Arrival and Lateness:

Please make every effort to be on time to school. It is so important that students arrive on time and are not late. Students are expected to be in their classroom by 8:32am. The building is open to families and students at 8:20AM. Classroom doors open at 8:32am.

 

All students, grades K-8, are considered late after 8:35 am. Any student not present between 8:32 and 8:45am will be marked absent. Students arriving at school after 8:45 am must go to the Main Office room 516, sign in and get a latepass.

 

Updates:

Congratulations! P.S. 333 Manhattan School for Children has been selected as a recipient of the Bronze Award for the 2017 NYC Excellence in School Wellness Award (ESWA) presented by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

 

Best,

Claire
