I can’t believe how quickly this year has been. Remember that every Tuesday, teachers and staff are here an additional 40 minutes for family engagement. Feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher and schedule a time to discuss how together, we can identify your child’s strengths and weaknesses to meet their individual needs.
On October 19, Chancellor Farina will be attending the Town Hall Meeting at 6:30pm. The meeting will be at P.S. 199, which is located at 39-20 48th ave in Long Island City.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. Feel free to visit http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-cancer-awareness-month to learn and read of the different ways to increase awareness.
