NYC School Survey

SurveyCounter

The 2016-2017 version of the NYC School Survey is aligned to the DOE’s Framework for Great Schools and collects important information about a school’s ability to improve student achievement and can support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.

Please take the NYC School Survey Online Here
The DOE expects one survey per family.
Teachers gave you a green envelope at your conference Remember to use the unique code found on the paper form in the green envelope.
If you prefer the paper survey to online, please return those to your teacher.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to submit this important information.

READ – A – THON
Remember to keep reading and recording!!
This event will last throughout the month of March — students will have the entire month to read books and find sponsors. We hope children will be reading new books, increasing literacy skills and increasing their vocabulary. This is also an opportunity for children to help raise money for the programs they love in school! Thank you in advance for your enthusiastic participation!

Morning Bake Sale Policy
Please take note of our new school policy regarding sweets in the classroom – Students MAY NOT bring hot chocolate or baked goods purchased at bake sales or anywhere else into their classrooms in the morning. If parents choose to purchase sweets for their child in the morning they must finish it in the schoolyard or cafeteria before going upstairs to their classrooms. Thanks for your cooperation.
