April News Letter

Dear Parents/Guardians & Families:


Yes!  April is here and the Holiday Academy will be in session Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, April 3, 4, and 5, 2018. We expect all students to attend these dates in preparation to the NY State Exam which will begin Wednesday & Thursday April 11 & 12 for ELA and Tuesday and Wednesday, May 1 & 2 for Mathematics. As we all know if your child misses this exam it puts him or her in jeopardy to repeat the grade. Mr. Echavarria, will be making wake up calls for the next two weeks to remind students to come early for these exams.

“Failure is not an Option”


Attention Parents!!!


The Learning Environment Survey is very important for your child’s school. The Department of Education carefully reviews parents answers and uses the results of the survey to make improvements in the schools, increase opportunities for students, and to continue to raise expectations for learning and safety. For more information on filling out the school surveys please contact Mr. Echavarria 718-583-6767 or visit our website
