What a great way to finish off the year with the final full week of school spirit!
And congratulations, Class of 2017!

Account Creation Code Letters
Please be sure to check your child’s back pack tonight for a letter regarding your NYC Schools Account. Each letter has a unique code for you to generate a personal student account.
With an NYC Schools Account, you will be able to access key information about your child’s progress in school, including attendance, report card grades, and state test information in one of ten languages on a computer, phone or tablet.

It is hard to believe we are approaching the bitter-sweet end of this year!
Next week there is one full day left of the school year and a half day on Wednesday. A few reminders before everyone scatters:

Dear Parents and Guardians

A shout out to all of you for supporting the textile drive last week!
We collected 400 pounds of clothes and shoes! Wow!
A special thanks to Choresh Wald for coordinating this effort.

We did a follow-up lice check this week as well as a parent training. We will hold another lice workshop in the fall. The good news: the lice situation seems to be under control. Let’s keep up the preventative measures and continue to comb!

Hang on to your hats, there is plenty of fun to be had next month!
