Parent Newsletter - October 2015

Dear Parent/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 he or she is 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.


Parent Association

IS 339 would like to congratulate all the parents that came out to support the SLT election on September 29th.

The Parent Association office is located on our first floor, room 110. If you would like to be a part of this team, feel free to stop by the welcome center room 241 and see Mr. Echavarria for more information.  The parent association meets every third Monday of every month at 5:30pm in the school library.  Our first was a success we had over 20 parents. Our next P.A. meeting is October 19th, 2015.

I want to congratulate all those fathers who came out to support "Dad Bring Your Child To School Day" on September 22nd. We had over 20 Fathers that supported the event. We shared information about the community and upcoming events here at IS 339.

We 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.

Thank you,
Kim Outerbridge
