Re: Students attending IS 281 in September, 2021
Greetings Grade 5 Graduates and Families:
Hard work always pays off! To better prepare you and your child for the giant leap to Intermediate School, summer is an ideal time for your child to practice what they’ve learned and challenge them for 6th grade learning tasks. Principal Bender and the IS 281 ELA department have prepared English Language Arts assignments for completion. The attached summer assignments have just been released for students preparing to attend for IS 281 in September, 2021, which can also be found on the IS 281 website: IS 281.com.
If you have any questions, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at (347) 563-4680 or via email at MLloyd2@schools.nyc.gov. You may also contact IS 281 school staff directly at (718) 996-6706.
Dear 5th Grade Families:
This year, our fifth grade students will be purchasing their Yearbooks online directly from the publishing company, Jostens.
Students and their families are to use the following link to purchase the Yearbook:
Any staff member who wishes to purchase a book may do so as a “student.”
The last day to purchase a Yearbook is March 26th.
Dear 5th Grade Parents-
We just received some beginning information on this year’s Middle School Application process.
You can read more about it here and as we get more information, I will let you know.
Good afternoon 5th Grade Parents-
When life throws you lemons, you make lemonade!
While graduation won’t happen in the traditional sense, we are working on a virtual graduation to honor our amazing 5th grade students and celebrate their accomplishments with you.
We will be holding 5th Grade Moving-up Ceremony on Thursday June 18, and will announce the time and virtual platform shortly.
My suggested next step for you is to decide on how you can make this day special at home for your children. Whether it’s ordering a special meal, cooking your your child’s favorite dish, or having a Zoom celebration with your family, etc- find a way to create a memory for your child so they look back and say, “Even though we didn’t have it in the school, it was still an amazing day!”
More details coming soon…
