Principal's Weekly Message

April 13, 2018

Dear PS 64 Families:

Welcome back! We hope you had a restful and peaceful spring recess. Let us seize the opportunity presented to us this time of year to make all things new again.

Our students in grades 3 through 5 took the NYS ELA exam on Wednesday and Thursday. There have been several changes to the exam over the years, all for the better in my opinion. First, students are permitted to take as much time as they need to finish the test. Also, it’s been shortened from 3-days to 2-days. Lastly, the questions have been considered very carefully and deliberately with input from educators throughout the state to make the most fair and representative test possible. It’s still a work in progress, but we’re certainly headed in the right direction. The feedback I’ve received has been positive, and I am proud of all our students who worked diligently and persevered over the two days. Make sure you give them something special this weekend. They deserve it. Many thanks to all of the teachers, teaching assistants, and, most notably, Ms. Amy Stone for their efforts in administering and facilitating the exam.

Our PTA meets next week Friday, April 20, at 8:30 a.m. in the library. All are encouraged to attend.

This week we celebrate National Assistant Principals Week. I, for one, could not imagine running the school without Ms. D’Arcangelo by my side. As an assistant principal, there is no finer. Join me in thanking Ms. D’Arcangelo for her service to the PS 64 community. I invite you to take a moment to send her a note of thanks at

That’s all for now. Have a great weekend. Let your light shine. Make all things new again.
