Daily Announcements

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is with great pleasure that I would like to invite you to our annual Curriculum Night at PS 396 on Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 from 5:00pm – 7:30pm. During this night you will be able to meet your child's teachers, therapists and other staff members including Ms. Martinez-Hollinger our guidance counselor and Roger Crawford, our new Social Worker, and of course your fellow parents. You will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from our Morris Heights Health Clinic and register your child for services. You will also be able to meet with Ms. Marilyn Morales, our Parent Coordinator who can share important Parent Association information and discuss ways that you can be more involved to help our students achieve more throughout the school year.

We will start the evening with a brief presentation in the auditorium regarding our school-wide goals and our 3Rs positive behavior intervention system. Following this meeting all parents will be invited to visit with your child’s teacher(s) in his/her classroom. The teacher will review the curriculum, classroom expectations, rules and procedures and our homework policy. If your child has speech, occupational and/or physical therapy you will also be able to speak with those providers. This is a chance for you to ask general questions and to clarify any school information you find confusing. However, this is not a time to discuss your child's individual needs or progress- save that for parent/teacher conferences in November when the teacher(s) will know your child better and can talk with you one-on-one. 

I hope that this night will provide families the opportunity to be involved in their child's learning and to truly understand the overall picture of the school year.  Together I know we can work to ensure all our children meet and exceed their goals.  I hope to see you all on Curriculum Night!
