Dear Parents & Families,
We start the month of May with a week of celebration and appreciation for teachers and staff! Please don't forget to acknowledge teachers and staff the week of May 2-6. Teachers do incredible, selfless work on a daily basis and are so deserving of this annual recognition.
Next, I want to shout out those 4 classes that have 100% Parent Completion Rates- 3K-112 (Ms. Daley & Ms. Deloach); Pre-K 106 ( Mrs. Porter & Ms. Glenn); 3-218 (Ms. Castellano) and K-201 (Mrs. Sikder-Ali) Your voice matters! Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.
Enrichment Club notices went home with families this week. Scholars in grades 3-5 will have an opportunity to participate in clubs such as Music, Sports, Gardening, Newspaper, Photography, Stewards and More. The due date for the return slip is May 6th. The program will run every Tuesday and Thursday until 4:00 from May 10th until June 16th
May is here and with it comes a whirlwind of school events and activities. I want to highlight a few of them and encourage you to participate, if you can.
MAY 11- STEAM FAIR- This annual event will happen at the school from 3:00-5:00. Families are invited to come into the school to take part in various activities, including rockets, making ice cream, Paper Bridges with Salvadori, robotics, a Studio in a School Gallery Walk, volcanoes, Science fair projects and more.
MAY 12- MOTHER'S DAY SIP & PAINT- This event will happen at the school for all BLES MOMS. Mr. Mildor will facilitate a SIP & PAINT session and every mom will leave with their masterpiece. A continental breakfast will be provided and there will be photo opportunities for moms and their children. Please RSVP to attend this event. An exact number is needed so that we will have the appropriate number of materials. Please let Mrs. Gibson know you'd like to attend by emailing her at email@example.com
MAY 23 - MAY 27- COLLEGE & CAREER WEEK at BLES. We are looking for parents who can participate on Wednesday May 25th. You'd speak to your child's class about the work that you do each day for about 20-30 minutes. If you are interested, please reach out to our school counselor, Ms. Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org
The United Community Schools Forum will take place at the end of the month. This is a great opportunity for you to reflect on the school year, give your feedback on different areas and help us to make plans for next year. During this forum, I will be giving a State of the School Address and answering parents' questions. For more information, please reach out to Mrs. Vazquez at email@example.com
I want to end this letter to families by shouting out THREE families that will be recognized at Power My Learning's Innovative Learning Awards taking place on May 10th at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan from 6-9 pm! Shout out to Ms. Keryan Henry and her son Jahid Clarke from class K-201. They will be receiving the Triangle Award along with Mrs. Sikder-Ali! Congratulations also goes to Ms. Latoya Chadwick and her son Quintin from class K-201 and Ms. Kimberly Brant and her son Shamel from class K-201. This year, they will receive a special certificate for the success they've had with the Family Playlists.
