Dear Families of 312,
Happy New Year! I hope this finds you well rested after the Holidays. I’m sure it was time well spent with all of your families. As we embark on 2017, we have many things to look forward to in the New Year so please mark your calendars with these important upcoming dates.
On January 11, our school will be celebrating College Awareness Day. Please make sure that your child brings in their self decorated college pennant that was sent home in December. Your children are encouraged to wear college gear on that day.
On January 20, there will be a PA sponsored Hip Hop Night. As in years past, this is a very fun filled event for your children so please count on attending.
February promises to be a great month. The 312 Seniors will be attending the Senior Trip to Woodloch Pines on February 10th. The students and parents have a great time every year and we expect this year to be the same.
We also have Respect for All Week coming up in February from February 13 through 17. During that same week, there will be a Valentine’s Day Sale and the 100th Day of School will be celebrated. More information and activities for this week will be forthcoming.
As these events are very exciting, we must also keep in mind that the State Exams are rapidly approaching. Please reference engageny.org for guides and released questions from the previous year so that you can help your child with preparing for the exam. In addition, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher for additional guidance and specific standards to study that your child can benefit from.
I am very appreciative of all of your support and I look forward to collaborating with you in building a stronger school.
Ms. Jamie Yoo
