ASL Message from Dave


This is the time of year where we all reflect upon the many things we are thankful for in our lives. I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate all we have in our PS 347 School community. As the Parent Coordinator, I am thankful for the wonderful parents and teachers who I get to interact with on a daily basis. I am also very thankful for the support and hard work of our dedicated PTA executive board, and school administrative staff.


Please remember school is closed on November 27th and November 28th 2014.

Happy November!

Message from Principal Dave Bowell

Dear Families,
 
This year, our teachers and staff are working diligently to ensure that each child in each seat in each classroom has the support he or she needs in order to achieve.  To that end, teachers and school leaders are collaborating closely to study each individual child’s performance and progress, and planning instructional next steps and the supports needed for each student.
This is a challenging task and that is why we are asking for your support.  We invite you to Parent Teacher Conferences this year so our teachers can tell you all about your child, and how they are helping him or her be the best.


Here are some questions you can ask your child’s teacher during Parent Teacher Conferences:
  • How well does my child read? How do you know?
  • Which subject does my child need the most help with? 
  • How can I support my child at home? 
  • What are my child’s learning goals for this week? Does s/he know them?
  • Is my child able to focus and participate in class?
  • How are you meeting my child where s/he is at and supporting him/her in meeting the standards for his/her grade?
  • What words are my child learning right now and how can I help my child with them?
  • How did you decide my child's report card grade? Can I see some of my child’s work from this fall?
