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:
Well June is finally here and all the hard work is about to pay off. Congratulations to all the parents of the graduating class of 2015. As we end this scholastic year I would like to thank every one that attended all the parent association meetings through out the school year. It is with great pleasure that I find myself enjoying my job more everyday because of you. I have had the honor of working with some pretty terrific women and men this year. We had great parents workshops this year.
One workshop that we would like to continue to grow upon is the, Fathers Forum. In our last Fathers Forum we had more than 70 fathers that showed up to support the school. At the forum we talked about family issues, obstacles and father support. IS 339 is planning on having a Fathers Forum on a monthly bases beginning in September 2015. Our IS 339 Family would like to invite you to our Fourth Family Day event on June 20th from 10am to 3pm in our wonderful school yard.
Next year we will do so much more. Our goal here at IS 339 is to create an extended family. Together we will see our children grow and become all that we have planned for them. We cannot do this without you. Please assure that your child continues reading during the summer. Summer reading is very important for your child’s education, please continue to support your children as the months ahead will be challenging and exciting. Remember that as parents we are our children’s first teacher. They learn by example. Please make sure that you have a safe summer and always keep an eye on your children as we all know summers in NYC are fun but also dangerous.
