Dyanthe’s Weekly Letters

Week of January 6, 2020

Dear Families,

Instead of the traditional DOE report card that is used in most NYC public schools, TNS teachers prepare written reports that provide you with information about your child’s progress over the year.  These narrative reports explain a child’s progress in far greater depth and detail than do the traditional reports. Narratives give an idea of what the child does and who the child is in class. They give a context for the teacher to reflect on the child and how to provide for their continued growth and development. They also provide insight into how families can help their child’s learning and development.  Mid-year narrative reports go home Thursday, February 6.

Just a gentle reminder to help keep our community as healthy as possible: please do not send your child to school with a fever.  Please also remember that in order to return to school, your child must be fever-free for 24 hours (“fever-free means” without the help of Tylenol, Motrin, etc.).  Thank you!

This Week at TNS…

  • Farm Information Session for Families:  Second and Third-grade families are strongly encouraged to attend the Farm trip orientation on Monday at 5:30 PM in the Library.

  • The PTA Executive Committee meets on Tuesday after drop-off in the PTA Room.

  • The Arts Committee meets on Wednesday after drop-off in the small cafeteria.

  • SLT meets on Thursday at 8 AM in Room 314.  All are welcome.

  • Erin, Wanda, Catlin, Shaniqua, Chelsea & Jane, Lindsey & Oli’s classes go ice skating Friday to Samuel J. and Ethel LeFrak Center at Lakeside Prospect Park.  The price of admission only is $8.00 for everyone. The price of renting skates and admission is $11.50.

Looking Ahead...

  • Friday, January 17 is a TNS half-day.  Dismissal is at 11:45 AM.

Have a good week,
