I traditionally hold spring grade-by-grade parent meetings to talk about what you can look forward to for next year. I have held off on scheduling these because I was hoping to have more information, which we now have (although there are still some unknowns). I have therefore scheduled these meetings, which will be on Zoom. At these meetings I will be talking about:
• End of year benchmarks for reading
• What we know about next year in terms of schedule and format and what is still up in the air
• Highlights of the curriculum for the grade your child is going into
• The Summer Rising program
• Our commitment to antiracist teaching
• Time for questions.
For the 5th Grade Meeting I won’t be focusing on next year’s curriculum but will talk about end-of-year fifth grade activities and will also ask for your feedback on your children’s experience at PS 321.
Check the Tuesday Bulletin or the email sent on 5/26 for the Zoom link to these meetings:
TUESDAY, 6/1, 5pm—5th Grade
WEDNESDAY, 6/2, 5pm–4th Grade
The rest of the grades are scheduled as follows:
FRIDAY, 6/11, 9am—1st Grade
TUESDAY, 6/15, 5pm—3rd Grade
FRIDAY, 6/18, 9am—2nd Grade
TUESDAY, 6/22, 5pm—Kindergarten (corrected from 5/26 email)
I look forward to seeing many of you at these meetings. We will record them in case you are unable to attend.
