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:   



Have you received a phone call from our School Messenger? Each day, we make an effort to call the home of any student who is absent from one or more classes. Attendance is extremely important. Your child cannot learn if they are not here each and every day. If you get this phone call, please realize that we want to make sure that you are aware of the student’s absence. It is our goal to work with you on making sure that your child is in school. A student can only miss 10 days throughout the entire year in order get promoted to the next grade. Please help us focus on the importance of being in class everyday.

We shared information about the community and upcoming events here at IS339.  IS 339 encourages open communication with parents and the community. We want you to be informed. Throughout the school year, your child’s teacher and I will be making a specific effort to stay in touch with you. We will keep you informed of your child’s progress and of school activities. Look for literature coming home each day, newsletters, invitations, updates, tips and reminders. We want you to know that our door is always open for you.
