Curriculum Evening Details

“Sneak Peek” into PS 29’s Curriculum
Invitation to PS 29’s
A Sneak Peek into Next Year’s Curriculum
Across Grades and Specialty Classes
May 25th, 2017 4:30–7:30 PM

.

We invite currently registered families to attend our “Sneak Peek” into PS 29’s Curriculum across Grades and Specialty Classes on Thursday, May 25th from 4:30 to 7:30 PM. This is a great opportunity to get a sense of what next year will look like. We encourage you to come visit.

Our classrooms will be open for touring and showcasing student work. Teachers will be available to answer questions about the grade’s curriculum and instructional approaches of our school. (Please note that you’ll be visiting a classroom showcasing work in the grade that your child will be going into in the fall.)  Please note, however, that this school year’s teachers are not necessarily going to be teaching the same grades next school year.  We will not have our official classes/teacher assignments until the end of August.

All Specialty Teachers will be available during this time, so take this opportunity to visit! Service providers (i.e., school counselor, SETSS teachers, speech providers, psychologist and social worker) will be available for office hours – and will contact families to make appointments during designated times as well.

We invite our 5th Grade Families to a talk on Transitioning to Middle School: Questions & Concerns for Parents and Kids.
Led by parent coordinator, Mónica Gutiérrez-Kirwan

This event is only for currently registered families at PS 29, and is an adult ONLY event.* PS 29 will NOT be providing childcare for this event.*
We kindly ask families not to bring students to this event as PS 29 does not have the capacity to supervise  students in hallways and staircases.

We look forward to seeing you!
