back to school night – parent 2017

Welcome “Back To School” Night!!!

September 11, 2017

Dear P.S. 101 Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to all of our returning and new students and families to PS 101. On Wednesday evening, September 13th, we will be holding an orientation to welcome PS 101 families and inform you about the school year ahead.

In order to accommodate parent requests for tailored classroom\teacher\program information, we have arranged multiple sessions so that you may able to attend more than one grade/department’s orientation, and at a time convenient to you.  Classroom sessions will be held in individual classrooms (classrooms are listed on the back of this notice), and specialty teaching staff (cluster teachers) will be housed in the auditorium for an overview of each program. Related Service Providers will be available in their assigned rooms for guidance and goal setting discussion.

Starting at 5:00pm teachers will hold two 45 minute teacher sessions at 5:00pm or 6:00pm (each of these two sessions will be the same so that you can attend a session that’s convenient for you). These orientations are designed to give parents/guardians an overview of this coming year’s work and expectations. It is important for you to attend these individual class meetings to gain a better understanding of expectations, learning goals, routines and rituals on the grade. Our objective is to develop a home/school partnership that will ultimately help your child succeed. While we would be pleased for your child to attend our school wide events, kindly try to schedule child-care in advance, as we expect very limited space in our classrooms.

Our Parent-Teacher Association is prepared to answer any and all of your concerns in their office, located on the first floor- room 159. Hand-outs, fundraiser information and school events will be shared for those parents stopping in for a meet and greet.

Additionally, our Speech and Language teachers will be holding an open house to help you understand the great need for language development and the strong link between building language and phonics skills to ensure good reading and writing. Our Speech and Language teachers will be meeting in room 351 at the end of each welcome session.

Our administrative team and Parent Coordinator will be available at any time for you during the evening.
Two identical sessions will be held in classrooms.
Choose the time that’s good for you:

Session #1: 5:00pm–5:45pm                                         Session #2: 6:00pm–6:45pm   

We look forward to seeing you and once again welcome to PS 101. I am confident it will be a productive and a fun-filled school year.
