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

  • Happy New Year!

     

    Welcome Back to School! I hope that you had a joyous and restful holiday break. I am confident that if we (scholars, parents, teachers, partners, school leaders and other stakeholders) continue to work together, Brooklyn Landmark will thrive in 2020 and beyond.  I am excited about what lies ahead for our school community!

    During the month of January,  there are several important Family Engagement opportunities for you to participate in.  On 1/7 and 1/14, during "Talk to the Teacher" time, teachers in grades K-2 will conduct a Family Playlist Workshop. On 1/21, third grade teachers will conduct a workshop for Parents on Getting Ready for NYS Testing. On 1/28, fourth and fifth grade teachers will host a workshop on Preparing for State Exams. If you need further information, please contact your child's teacher.

    Progress Reports will be sent home on  Friday, January 17th. This document will let you know whether or not your child is making adequate progress in core subject areas.  Please check your child's book-bag/homework folder on 1/17. 

    Finally, on January 22nd at 8 am, I will host a Principal's Coffee Chat for families. During this time, I will provide the state of the school, the progress we have made in meeting our school-wide goals and share some of the effective teaching strategies we are using with scholars in reading and math. Immediately following my Coffee Chat, there will be a Title 1 Workshop (Wake Up Wednesday) at 9 am.

    I look forward to seeing you at these and other events. 

    In Partnership,

    Joyce Beckles-Knights
