Greetings P.S. 312 Family,
Happy June! The school year is coming to a close and it is quite amazing how much we have accomplished collectively. We have had so many special events, shows, dances,trips, Parent Engagement sessions, and learning opportunities throughout the entire school year. Without you, this would not have been possible. P.S. 312 isa special place because of you.
We will continue on this path of excitement for the next school year. The School Leadership Team has been working diligently to prepare a viable action plan for our school to succeed and flourish even more.
For school year2016 – 2017, we will be implementing a new Social Emotional curriculum entitled the “Sanford Harmony Program” for all of our students. This will be done first thing in the morning from 8:00 – 8:20. Please make every effort to get your children to school on time so that they do not miss this pivotal block of time in the morning. You can find more information through this link: http://sanfordeducationcenter.org/harmony.cfm.
In addition, we will be continuing our trajectory of Project Based Learning. As this year was our first year conducting a Pilot unit in each of the grades, we will plan more units for the upcoming year. Project Based Learning affords students to learn through inquiry, collaboration, and cognitive engagement. Please look out for an invitation throughout the school year to come and learn what your amazing children are learning in school!
Another new initiative that we will be launching for the 2016 -2017 School year is a new data system. As it is our pilot year, we will need some time to assimilate ourselves to the new system but we are looking forward to housing data and adding another mode of communication with you, our parents. The program as a whole is entitled, “Ioeducation.” You can find more information via this link: https://ioeducation.com.
We look forward to another amazing school year. For those families who are leaving us and graduating, you will be missed! For those who are just joining us for the first time, we welcome you! Have a great summer and see you in September.
