Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have successfully completed the first half of the school year and we are beginning 2015 with a renewed energy and excitement. We continue to foster our commitment to parents working as partners in their children’s education. Let’s look at the most recent review of research from the book, Beyond the Bake Sale:

-  Students of families who are involved in their learning earn better grades, enroll in high-level programs, have higher graduation rates and go on to college.

-  When families take an active interest in learning, students have a more positive attitude about school and behave better both inside and outside of school.

Our goal at Family School 32 is to continue to have our students thrive and excel in all areas of their education.

To promote student success please continue to be attentive to your children’s progress as the year evolves. Continue your dialogue with your children about their school day and keep close communication with your children’s teachers. That sends the message that you are interested in their progress and supportive of their teacher and class.

Check the School’s Webpage http://ps32.ypschools.org/ for important information about upcoming events and notices.

Be sure to encourage your children to read every evening and complete all homework and projects on time.  Remind your children to continue to work on the Study Island, Brain Pop and Bookflix programs.

To foster school safety please speak with your children about following all rules and all bus safety procedures. Children must remain seated on the bus with their seatbelts fastened.


And please remember to join us for P.A.C.T. Time the second and fourth Wednesday of the month and for our monthly PTA meetings.


Working together we can continue to have a successful school year!

Sincerely,

Susan V. Fierson

Principal
