End of Year Letter to Parents 2018

End of Year Letter 2018
June 22, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The year has gone by so fast and I’m proud of the work my teachers, support staff and students have accomplished to meet state standards and progress with reading, writing and mathematics.  I encourage you to work with your child over the summer with just the right mix of fun in the sun, family time, new experiences and friends and studying to reinforce the skills learned this year- reading every day, writing, discussion and mental math and hands-on learning with serve as a recipe for student success. You are your child’s first teacher and they will always follow your lead- so I urge you to lead by example and set expectations and a partnership that will ensure growth.

As the school year at P.S. 101 comes to a close, we have begun preparation for the 2018 – 2019 school year. Much of the preparation includes the creation of classes for the next year. Placement of students is a careful and deliberate process involving many considerations. Some of which are:

*Academic strengths and weakness areas of improvement

*Work habits and motivation

*Social, emotional and intellectual development

*Learning style

*Special needs (services and IEP mandates)

*Gender balance

*Interpersonal relationships

Each class profile reflects our collaborative efforts to ensure our children are placed appropriately. Therefore, in fairness to all students and families, I can assure you that every child receives full consideration in determining class placement.

The administration and staff appreciate your support as we work together to develop our student’s minds and hearts.  Have a wonderful summer vacation! Enjoy the time spent with your children and send them back to us in September well, happy, and ready to succeed.

 

Sincerely,

 

Gregg Korrol

Principal

Dear Parent or Guardian,
Federal law requires the NYC Department of Education (NYCDOE) to report on students we serve who have a parent(s) on active duty in the armed forces. The NYCDOE needs your help to meet this requirement because families are the best source for this information. The government uses this information to help understand the best ways to support these students. The Armed Forces are the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, the Coast Guard, or full-time National Guard. Active duty means full-time duty in the active military service of the United States. Such term includes full-time training duty, annual training duty, and attendance, while in the active military service, at a school designated as a service school by law or by the Secretary of the military department concerned.
If the statement below is accurate, sign and date the document, and return this form to your child’s school by June 15, 2018.

If this statement does not apply to your child, please disregard this notice.
I or another parent or guardian of my child have/has been on active duty in the Armed Forces between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.
