Last week, a letter was sent home with students in grades 3-5 with information about the test. If you did not receive the letter, contact your child’s teacher or the main office (718)965-4200. We will be happy to send home an additional copy.
Because of spring recess and the administration of the NYS exams, the school will not host a Parents as Learning Partners event during the month of April. I will forward the date for our next event in a future edition of the weekly notes.
