Parent Newsletter - February 2013

Dear Parents/Guardians & Families:

I Hope you have been enjoying the unusually mild winter that the east coast has been enjoying recently.  Unfortunately, Punxsutawney Phil, the world's most famous prophetical groundhog, has seen his shadow and is predicting six more weeks of winter.  No matter what the weather is outside, the learning environment at I.S. 339 is just right for students whose minds are working overtime.  On February 1st, the third marking period begins.  Teachers and advisors have submitted second marking period grades and report cards will be issued during Parent/Teacher conferences, which will be held on February 28, 2013 during the two convenient sessions. There will be an afternoon session from 1:00-3:00PM and an evening session from 5:00-7:30PM.

The third marking-period is an optimal time for learning here at I.S. 339.  All students will be taking the NYS ELA examination on Tuesday, April, 16th, 17th, and 18th and the NYS Mathematics examination on Wednesday, April 24th. 25th, and 26th.  There are approximately less than 50 days until both of these critical exams will be taken Please encourage your child to continue to take advantage of the supplemental academic programs I.S. 339 has to offer.  We hold Saturday Academy from 8:30am-1:00pm. If you have questions about your child’s involvement in any of our academic programs, please contact your child’s assistant principal, guidance counselor or homeroom teacher at 718-582-6767.

Finally, just a reminder that school will be closed for winter break only on February 18th & 19th.  School will resume on Wednesday February 20th.   Please make sure that your child arrives to school early and ready to learn.

Thank you,
Kim Outerbridge

Happy Thanksgiving!

As we approach Thanksgiving, our thoughts often turn to gratitude.  Here at IS339, we are especially grateful for our students who are the focus of the teaching and learning that occur daily at the school along with the teachers and staff who devote their careers to helping students expand their knowledge, make new discoveries, and grow, both in and out of the class room.  Best wishes from the 339 Tech Tiger family to your family for a very happy Thanksgiving!
