Failure is not an option, because...success is the only option!
Our mission is to cultivate and develop the entire school community so that all students are college-and-or career ready. With foci on all populations of children, teachers will engage collaboratively to ensure accelerated student learning through reflective practice and professional learning experiences. A guiding philosophy of all adults in the school community is that every student deserves an effective teacher, and we work tirelessly to seek out opportunities that will advance this belief.
Our goal is to increase the number of level 3 and 4 students by 10% in English Language Arts and Mathematics.
Dear Parents/Guardians & Families:
Its incredible how fast time flies, we have less than 40 days of learning here at IS 339. It’s very important for your child to keep attending school. By making school attendance a priority it will help your children to learn the good work and study habits that will serve them well now and throughout their lives. Attendance is extremely important. Your child cannot learn if they are not here each and every day. If you get a phone call from our school messenger, please realize that we want to make sure that you are aware of the student’s absence or lateness. It is our goal to work with you on making sure that your child is in school every day.
