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:
November is here and it is report card time already. Tuesday, November 20th is Parent-Teacher Conference Day. The conferences will be held from 12:30pm to 2:30pm, and 4:30pm to 7:30pm. All students will be dismissed at 11:50am on Thursday November, 20th. 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.
Emergency blue cards are required for each child in attendance at IS339. We have 90% of lunch forms turned in. 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.
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. We also want to sign up as many parents as possible to ARIS.
