Parent Newsletter - February 2016

Dear Parents/ Guardians & Families:

I hope you have been enjoying the unusually mild winter that the east coast has been enjoying recently.  Unfortunately, Punxsutawney Phil, the world's most famous prophesizing groundhog, has seen his shadow and is predicting six more weeks of winter.  No matter what the weather is outside, the learning environment at I.S. 339 is hot with students whose minds are working overtime. 

On February 12th, the second marking period comes to an end, we encourage students to asked their teachers if they are missing any assignments that they could turn in before the grades are due.

Teachers and advisors will submit second marking period grades and report cards will be issued during Parent/Teacher conferences, which will be held on March 17, 2016, during the two convenient sessions.  There will be an afternoon session from 1:00-3:00 PM and an evening session from 5:00-7:30 PM.

The Third Marking Period is an optimal time for learning here at I.S. 339.  All students will be taking the NYS ELA examination on Tuesday, April, 5th,  6, and 7th,  the NYS Mathematics examination on Wednesday, April 13th, 14th, and April 15th. There are approximately less than 60 days until both of these critical exams will be taken. Please encourage your child to continue to take advantage of the supplemental academic programs I.S. 339 has to offer. We hold Saturday Academy from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM. If you have questions about your child’s involvement in any of our academic programs, please contact your child’s assistant principal, guidance counselor or homeroom teacher at 718-583-6767.

Finally, this is just a reminder that IS 339 will be open for winter break on February 16th, 17th  and 18th. It's a great opportunity for your child to get prepare for the ELA and State test. Please make sure that your child arrives to school early and ready to learn. 

Thank you,
Kim Outerbridge
