Dear Parent/ Guardian(s),
Each new school year brings opportunities for growth within and outside our school. We are honored to have your child become a member of our school. We are honored to have your child become a member of our team at I.S 303. Here we believe that every child has gifts and talents to share within and outside our school community. In our effort to bring out these natural born talents, we focus on The 7 habits of Highly Effective Teens, through the Leader in Me Journey.
Although students must be knowledgeable, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and open-minded individuals. The Leader in Me provides our school with a positive culture, which develops synergy with all team members. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents. They are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results and motivate one another to be the best. The 7 Habits focuses on life skills needed to become successful in life.
We are motivated and committed to grow with you as a team to better your child(s) experience here at I.S. 303. We encourage parent(s) to commit to our SLT/ PTA meetings and make appointments with staff to ask any questions they may have. Our school also uses Skedula. This is an online tool, in which you can view grades, see homework assignments and communicate with the teacher. Parent(s) and students will have separate accounts. This information will be sent home. We have interpreters for many languages but encourage parents to apply to the adult English Language Learners class that is offered here. Please contact Mrs. Barrow, our Parent Coordinator for more information. Communication is the key to the success of our students. Together with your help we expect to have a wonderful school year.
Meet the teacher will be on September 20th. We hope you can attend so we can go over expectations share curriculum and answer your questions. We look forward to sharing these new opportunities with you. Together, we will watch your child grow throughout the year and guide them towards becoming the leaders they are meant to be.
