Dear Families of PS 889,
Welcome to the first year of PS 889! We are thrilled to begin this journey of providing an educational experience for your children of the highest quality. We have been busy thinking, discussing and planning our family involvement program that is reflective of our dynamic and diverse community. My first letter to you is an invitation to join me and our dedicated staff in this process to form a strong home school connection. Parent and family participation comes in many forms – attending PTA meetings, being a volunteer in the school, joining your child in a classroom learning activity, attending a family fun or curriculum night, participating in a fundraiser by baking cookies, engaging local businesses to donate goods and services, serving on committees such as School Leadership, instructional advisory, or school beautification project. I am confident that there is something for everyone! It is our hope that with your input, we will create a variety of opportunities that will involve you in the joyful rigorous life of PS 889. Through this ongoing, collaborative effort, we intend to demonstrate the power of parent involvement for a positive school culture resulting in superior student achievement.
In the upcoming weeks, we will be sending home more information about the specifics of our school-wide events, projects and committees as well as important procedural information to ensure a safe and efficient school environment. I’m looking forward to an exciting school year with you, the founding families of PS 889.
