Principal’s Newsletter – November 2014

MATTER OF PRINCIPLES:

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We welcome back all new and returning students, parents and staff to another exciting school year!

Our school year has begun, once again, with much activity and enthusiasm.  We hope that you and your children have had a good beginning of the school year.

Student success is one of the primary goals at Howard P.S. Our wonderful teachers assist students to understand how to balance the curriculum expectations by teaching organizational skills such as using an agenda for short term and long term homework assignments as well as providing tips on how to study for tests. When students feel comfortable in their learning environments, they are able to focus on learning to the best of their ability.

The elementary years of transition are exciting times of growth and change.

Supporting students in partnership with parents and guardians will assist them in achieving success in all aspects of their development. We look forward to continued excellence in academics and in our extra-curricular activities. Encourage your child to get involved!

Yours in partnership,
Rosanna Sardella
Principal/Directrice
