A Message from the Principal

 


September 28, 2018

Dear PS 64 Families:

Now that the new school year is in full swing and all of our routines, systems, and structures are in place, let us take a moment to remind you of the importance of time spent on instruction.  Simply put, we cannot afford to waste any time once the school day begins at 8:20 a.m.  Parents, it is your responsibility to make sure that your child arrives to school on time every day and is prepared to learn.  When instruction begins, and this is especially true in kindergarten, parents are not permitted to enter the classroom and interrupt learning.  Next to safety, there is nothing more important to us than your child’s education.  When a parent enters a classroom during instruction without explicit permission from the principal, teachers are put in the difficult position to stop teaching in order to address the parent and remind him/her of the school policy.  It’s not fair to the teacher or the children who are missing precious instructional time. Please continue to work with us to create an environment conducive to learning.  

Through the goodness and generosity of our friends in the History Channel, all of our second grade students received a sturdy drawstring knapsack for their swimming gear.  Our second grade youngsters enjoy learning how to swim and we are delighted to provide this opportunity for them.

 We were honored today with a visit from UFT President Michael Mulgrew; and AFT President Randi Weingarten.  The teachers represented us well during their morning meeting and, after that, I was able to have a good conversation with Mr. Mulgrew and Ms. Weingarten about ways in which we can improve our educational system. They were both pleased and impressed with our work. 

 Have a great weekend.  Let us continue to be instruments of justice, mercy, and,  

 

Peace,

 

Marlon L. Hosang

Principal
