Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School Mission Statement

At Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School, scholars will be empowered to have choice in how they learn and voice in what they learn. We will provide innovative, individualized instruction that addresses scholar's unique learning styles, cultivates, independent thought, promotes the building of character and enables students to contribute their ideas locally and globally . The Brooklyn Landmark experience  will guide our scholars as they develop their sense of identity and purpose in this world.  We will comprehensively develop citizens who will be decision makers in tomorrow's society.  The Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School scholars will inspire greatness in others, allow their voices to be heard worldwide and create change through their actions and endeavors.  By giving our scholars a choice in how they learn and a voice in what they learn, we are building the foundation of critical thinkers that is needed in the best colleges and the 21st Century workplace.

Message from Principal Knights

  • Monthly Update from Mrs. Knights

    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    Welcome to the 20-21 school year.  Please note that the first day of in-person instruction has changed! Scholars in 3K and Pre-K only  (GROUP A) will start in-person instruction on Monday September 21st. Scholars in 3K and Pre-K only (Group B) will start in-person instruction on Thursday September 24th.  On  SEPTEMBER 21st, all other scholars will begin REMOTE Learning . On September 29th, K-5 students (GROUP A) will start in-person instruction. On 10/1, K-5 (GROUP B) will start in-person instruction.

    While this year will present quite a few challenges, we will continue to ensure that every scholar receives a high quality education. Below is reopening information for in-person instruction. 

    Daily Arrival: 8:30 AM

    Daily Dismissal: Dismissal will be staggered to help with social distancing

                                      3K-2- 1:45 PM pickup

                                      Grades 3-5- 2:00 PM pickup

    There will be 4 entrances/dismissal doors:

              3K, Pre-K, 4th and 5th: Main Entrance Doors

              Kinder & 1st grade: Rockaway Avenue (enter through Small Schoolyard-door on left)

              2nd grade- Rockaway Avenue (enter through Small Schoolyard- door on right)

              3rd Grade: Door by Auditorium (enter through Big Schoolyard- Sumpter Street)

    We will have OUTDOOR dismissal from the Big Schoolyard for scholars in Grades K-5. During inclement weather, scholars will remain in their classrooms and will be escorted downstairs once someone arrives to pick them up. Parents should use Class Dojo, Remind etc to notify the teachers that they have arrived for pick up. Parents should meet scholars by the same door used for arrivals on inclement weather days.

    Below is the Program Model our school is using this year.  Groups A and B will have in-person instruction twice a week and remote instruction three days a week. Group D will learn remotely 5 days a week from 8:30-2:00.  All scholars will be engaged in Remote Instruction on Wednesdays.

    We are using the GOOGLE CLASSROOM Learning Platform. These classrooms have already been set up and invitations have been sent out for each scholar to join their classes. Your child must have their DOE username and password to access the Google Classroom. If their DOE username is marie12 and the password is HELLO,  their email address is marie12@nycstudents.net. If you have any questions about your child's username and password for Google Classroom, please reach out to our school's Parent Coordinator Mrs. Simone Gibson at simoneg@brooklynlandmark.org

    You should have also received information about  which cohort your child is in, school supply lists and school uniforms. If you have not, please email me at joycek@brooklynlandmark.org or email Mrs. Gibson at the email address above.

    Next, here are SAMPLE schedules for Remote Learning (Group D) and Blended Learning (Groups A and B) so that you can get an idea of what instruction will look like for your child this year.
