Letter from Claire - Sep 11

September 11, 2017


Dear Families,

These past two days have been so wonderful!  I have enjoyed greeting many of you. Thank you to all the students who walked into the building smiling; hugging me, giving high fives!  This was the best way to start the school year.  


We had a smooth and successful school opening! During my visits to classrooms, students and families were talking, bonding and so happy to be back at school.


Please note.  Due to the exterior construction work, the little yard will not be available after school hours.  We know this is not welcomed news, but it is imperative that we keep everyone safe during construction.  The plan is to give the workers as much time as possible to finish the project.  Since construction cannot take place during the school day, it is in our best interest to allow them as much time as possible so that they can wrap construction as fast as possible.  We will continue to keep you posted on developments, but if you have any questions about this project, please reach out to Tatiana THoover2@schools.nyc.gov.
