May 31, 2016
Last week I sent home a list of many end-of-year events. But this week I am writing to brag about the incredible teachers and students in our school, PreK-8! I have been in education a long time, and believe me when I say that in many schools, June is a full month of winding down.
The exact opposite happens at PS126/MAT. Every grade is still in full work mode. The students are working on social studies, math, and science projects throughout the school. They are writing memoires, reading Shakespeare, composing poetry, and crafting research papers. They are participating in sporting events, music events and getting ready to present art. We will be working hard until June 28!
This level of activity reflects the belief system of our school that every minute counts and our students deserve the best education we can design and deliver. The energy level of learning is high all around and it is a pleasure to hear the hum of activity everywhere.
