Here we have P.S. 315's principal and P.S. 152's principal holding their certificates for winning the Cycle of NYC Participatory Budgeting! 
 Participatory budgeting (PBNYC) is a city program that allows residents to vote on $1 million to $1.5 million in projects developed by community members.


Dear Parents/ Guardians,


As we move into March and the latter part of the school year, please remember to focus on helping your child prepare for the upcoming 2019-20 school year. Make sure to reinforce the content and skills your children are learning, good study skills, positive behavior and a proactive approach towards learning. As your child’s first teacher, it is up to you to become a “partner” with the school regarding your child’s education. Parent –Teacher Conferences are a good time to visit with your child’s teacher to keep abreast of your child’s progress. The spring Parent-Teacher Conferences will be help on March 14 from 12:30-2:30 and 4:30-7:30. Bring your child to the conference so you and he/she can be part of the process together. Make sure to ask your child’s teacher questions that you feel will help you best assist your child with his/her progress. Ask your child what he/she has learned in school so you have an idea of what your child is learning. Help your child with his/her homework by providing your child with an organized area and a structured time that is consistent every day.
I look forward to seeing everyone throughout the remainder of the school year.


Principal Judith Ranft Quartana
