From the Principal

I’d like to wish all of our P.S.52 families much happiness and good health as we start 2015! It’s wonderful to see our children each morning, well rested and eager to do well in school. I need to thank our parents for supporting our children as they complete their daily assignments and Vacation Learning Packets. These tools help students as they reinforce the skills that we are working so hard to teach. I also want to again thank all of our parents for the successful implementation of our School Uniform Policy this year. Our children look terrific and there has been a noticeable shift in the building culture.

The school year is passing quickly. Of course we are all working hard to prepare our children to meet the criteria of the Common Core Learning Standards and do well on the upcoming standardized tests. We’re fortunate to be able to offer many of our Grade 3-5 students the opportunity to attend our After-school Academic Program. Our intention is to provide intensive instruction and test preparation to our children so that their performance on the upcoming NYS ELA and Math Tests will show increased student achievement.

The entire staff at P.S. 52 continues to work towards college and career readiness for our students. Our entire school community is working to address our Instructional Focus, “All staff and students at P.S.52 will engage in a whole school initiative to raise student achievement by maximizing student engagement. We will work to ensure that all students are intellectually engaged in challenging content through well designed learning tasks and activities that require complex thinking by students”

This year, we've been very successful in seeing more of our parents as well. We continue our weekly, grade appropriate Common Core parent meetings. At these meetings we offer resources and support to parents as they’re familiarized with the instructional practices implemented in our curriculum. We've begun to hold Adult English as a Second Language classes as well.

It is wonderful to be part of a school community that works so well together and I look forward to continuing our work in 2015!
