A Message From The Principal

March 31, 2014

Dear Parents,

I am sure you are aware that we start our New York State assessment in English Language Arts tomorrow, April 1, 2014.  The testing period is April 1-3 with make-up assessment tests being offered April 4-8.

Your children have worked hard this year integrating the Common Core Standards into all of their classes.  They have made huge strides and you should be proud of their efforts.  I have seen significant changes, all positive, in the ways our students are thinking, engaging in discussions and synthesizing information.

We are looking at this testing period as an opportunity for our students to show off all they have learned.  In order to give them every opportunity to be successful we ask that all students arrive to school on time.  A healthy breakfast has always proven to be beneficial.  Finally, a few words from you, as they leave for the bus, simply encouraging them to do their best work.

We all recognize the publicity and political platforms surrounding the Common Core.  We may not all agree with the ways in which the State has implemented these expectations, however, I can say our students have certainly been exposed to the materials and content needed for them to show personal growth.

We are proud of the efforts of our students and teachers and are looking forward to seeing the positive results of their hard work.

We thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Edward J. Hallisey
Principal
