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 Parent/Guardians & Families,

November is here and it is report card time already.  Tuesday, November 17th is Parent-Teacher Conference Day.  The conferences will be held from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, and 5:00pm to 7:30pm.  All students will be dismissed at 11:50am on Tuesday November, 17th.  Please arrange for your child to be picked up at that time since the staff members must have lunch and prepare for the afternoon conferences.  Report cards will be distributed at these conferences.  No report cards will be sent home with students.  You must have a meeting with your child's teacher to receive his or her report card.  It's important for parents to attend this conference so that your child's teacher and you can discuss your child's progress in school.

PHIPPS after-school program has started, if your child has not returned his/her application, please do so as soon as possible.  If your child needs another application, he/she can see Mr. Martin in the main office.

Emergency blue cards are required for each child in attendance at IS339.  We have received 92% of lunch forms.  If you have not done so, please complete the required form.  Some parents received a bill last school year because they didn’t return a lunch form.  I want to say thank you for your continued support to those who did turn in lunch forms.

Please continue to follow our school safety policy.  All parents, guardians, and visitors must show photo identification when visiting the building.  All visitors must go to the main office once you have signed in at the School Safety desk.

If you would like more Information about any further event feel free to contact Mr. Echavarria at 718-583-6767, or just check for updates at this website.

As we approach Thanksgiving, our thoughts often turn to gratitude.  Here at IS339, we are especially grateful for our students who are the focus of the teaching and learning that occur daily at the school along with the teachers and staff who devote their careers to helping students expand their knowledge, make new discoveries, and grow, both in and out of the class room.  Best wishes from the 339 Tech Tiger family to your family for a very happy Thanksgiving! 

Thank you,

Kim Outerbridge
