Dyanthe’s Weekly Letters

Week of June 22, 2015

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

With only a few days remaining in this school year, I want to share the final version of the class configurations for next year.  We will have four 4th/5th grades, two 3rd grades, four 1st/2nd grades, two kindergartens and two pre-K/Ks classes.  The additional 1st/2nd grade class means that some students may not have the same teacher or friends in their class for next year.  Although that may feel a little unsettling to you now, we have given these changes much thought and feel sure that this is the right way to go.  We look forward to minimum discomfort for students and families in September and to real benefits from these changes. We will let you know your child’s class placement for next year on Friday.

Please let your friends, family and neighbors know that The Neighborhood Schools has spaces in our upper grade classes (3rd, 4th and 5th grades) for next year; they can reach out to me (dyanthe@tnsny.org) or Noemi (nmora@schools.nyc.gov) for more information.  

It is a tradition at TNS that we have Camp Days on the last two full days of school.  In the morning, kindergarten students will go to the recess yard and the 1st and 2nd grade students will go the 1st Park.  In the afternoon, upper grades go to 1st park.  Students will get wet if the sprinklers are on (and we hope they are), so please send a change of clothes to school for your child.  If you do not want your child to go into the sprinklers, please let your teacher know.

Just few reminders:

  • We still have 2014 - 15 yearbooks for sale.  The TNS yearbook is a long standing tradition:  it’s a great way to cherish the memories of the school year.  It highlights the best of our community: Sing, Ice Skating, Camping Trips, Halloween Parade, etc.  Every grade and every class is represented.  You can purchase your copy from Noemi.

  • Narrative Reports go home Thursday.

  • Friday is a half-day (and the last day of school).  Dismissal is at 11:35am.    

  • On Friday,we will also have our last Sing of the year in the courtyard at 8:45am.  Please note, we not have a bake sale.

Lastly, it is time to say goodbye to some beloved members of our teaching community.  Katie, a founding teacher and 1st/2nd grade teacher is retiring.  Colin, one of our 4th/5th grade teachers is taking a leave to teach in Jakarta.  We will miss them both, but wish them luck on their next adventure!

It’s difficult to believe that another year is coming to an end.  Like our students (hopefully), I feel a little older and wiser.  It has been a remarkable year for our school, thanks to our incredibly dedicated teachers and staff, and of course our remarkable families.  I am more than grateful to be a part of this very special community.  Thank you!

I hope you have a wonderful summer with your children.  We look forward to seeing you again on September 9th.  

Much Love,

Dyanthe

Dear Neighborhood School Families,

Word of mouth is often the best way to share information.  Please let your friends, family and neighbors know that The Neighborhood School has spaces in our upper grade classes (3rd, 4th and 5th grades) for next year; they can reach out to me (dyanthe@tnsny.org) or Noemi (nmora@schools.nyc.gov) for more information.  

During the month of June, teachers are hard at work in the evenings and on the weekends writing your children’s progress reports.  Progress reports tell the story of a child as a learner; they are descriptive, filled with precise detail, and reveal a child’s interests, strengths and areas for growth.  The end-of-year reports will detail the growth your child has made this year.  Reports go home June 25.  

Mark your calendars:

  • 5th grade graduation will take place Thursday at 1:30pm in the auditorium.

  • Our last Sing of the year will on Friday, June 26th at 8:45am in the yard.  I hope that you can join us.

  • Friday, June 26 is a half-day (and the last day of school!).  Dismissal is at 11:35am.

Have a wonderful week,

Dyanthe
