Parent Newsletter - January 2015

Dear Parents/ Guardians & Families:       

Happy New Year!

We are excited and eager to kick off the new year in our building and get back to our routine.  We want to keep the focus on learning and setting goals for the 2nd half of the year. Together we will prepare our students/ children to compete in this ever-changing world. We here at IS 339 wish you a flourishing and successful year.

It’s the start of a new year and nearly the halfway point in this school year. So it’s a good time to take stock and make any needed adjustments. Spend some time talking with your child about how the school year is going. If the two of you set learning goals at the start of the year, review those goals now. Is he or she making prog­ress? How can they make the rest of the school year even better?

Parents it’s very important to spend time reading. There is no skill that will help your child more in school. And reading, like other skills, gets better with practice. Encourage your child to read, and don’t worry about what she reads. Let her read about sports, her favorite TV star or a hobby.

Thank you,
Kim Ourterbridge
