Dear Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of the staff of P.S. 35, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. Our first parent engagement event this year to build our home school partnership is a Back to School Night Meet and Greet. We look forward to seeing you on …

from 4:30 pm until 7:30 pm
During our Back to School Night, you will have the opportunity to meet P.S. 35’s staff including your child’s teacher(s) and myself. We will meet in the Gymnasium from 4:30 pm until 5:00 pm as an entire school community followed by a presentation in your child’s classroom with their teacher. The teacher’s classroom presentation will be offered three (3) times during the evening. The first classroom presentation will be from 5:00-5:50 pm. The second classroom presentation will be from 5:50-6:40 pm and final classroom presentation will be from 6:40-7:30 pm. Each classroom presentation will provide the same information so you will only need to attend one (1) presentation. The classroom presentation will focus on the exciting Literacy, Math, Social Studies, Science, Computer Science, Physical Education, and Visual Arts learning experiences your child will participate in during this school year. Individual classroom teachers will also share their specific homework policy. Individual parent meetings will take place during the November Parent Teacher Conferences or during our weekly Parent Engagement sessions but not during Back to School Night.
Exciting News!!! This school year we have an opportunity for four (4) parents to work closely with P.S. 35’s staff to increase parent engagement and involvement. Please consider joining our Parent Teacher Association. The following positions on the Parent Teacher Association are vacant- President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Additional information regarding PTA re-election will be provided during our September 12th Back to School Night. You can also speak with Ms. Banks, Parent Coordinator if you have any questions regarding the re-election.
I am excited to begin this journey with you. I look forward to meeting you on Thursday, September 12, 2019.
Ms. Peebles-Davis, Acting Principal
