home and school partnership letter
The home-school partnership includes getting our families involved and helping you understand what your child is expected to learn this school year. As your Parent Coordinator, I am committed to helping you and guiding you to help ensure your child’s success. To stay up-to-date with our curricular, learning objectives, programs, events, notices of information and happenings, please refer to our school website:
This website will help you “Bridge Education and the World” with the staff and students of PS 101. Our school website will provide you with pertinent information you need to know, so please check our website readily and save it to your “favorites” immediately.
For New York City students and their families, you have quick access to important information on the NYC Department of Education website at your fingertips. Schools.nyc.gov will ensure you are up-to-date with:
*city school happenings
*bring awareness of programs
*planning and understanding of your child’s education from kindergarten to the college/career readiness
Log in to the home page of the NYC Department of Education and click on the BACK TO BASICS icon/link. This is a one-stop, back-to-school shop with important information to get ready for the first days of school and a fantastic school year. You can also download a copy of the Achieve NYC Back to School Basics PDF to read and share with your family.
One of my favorite NYC guides is the attached Achieve NYC: A Complete Guide to New York City Public Schools.
The guide contains:
*important dates details about enrolling in our city schools
*who to speak to in schools when you have concerns
*grade-specific learning expectations
*transportation options for students, and how to obtain financial aid for college
This is accessible on the schools.nyc.gov homepage as well with a click of a button. You can also access through the Back TO BASICS link.
Ensure you visit mystudent.nyc to log in to your NYC Schools Account to check your child’s Grades and Attendance. As your Parent Coordinator, l can gladly help you set up an account and log in if you need assistance. I will be holding workshops for families to attend to share academic learning expectations, arts, health and wellness and parenting courses to guide you through your child’s elementary schooling.
I am excited for a wonderful year with all of you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me immediately, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at 347-563-4680.
