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:
Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful hot summer. Summer school session is in full effect here at I.S. 339, and attendance is a big piece for your child’s promotion. Summer school is 19 days. If your child misses more than 2 days he/she will have to repeat the grade. It’s very important that your child comes to school every day on time and ready to learn. Wake up calls are being sent every day to make sure your child arrives to school on time.
Here are some important dates in July:
1st Summer school begins
23rd Parent Workshop
29th & 30th Working on Portfolio
31st ENDLINE EXAM
In Mid-August families of students not promoted in June will receive a final promotion decision letter in the mail. If you are not satisfied with this decision, you may submit a written appeal to the school, in person or by mail during the end of August. Your child’s academic achievement will be reviewed and evaluated based on his/her promotion criteria. In addition, the appeal will be reviewed by the school Principal, who will make the final decision.
