Did you get your bracelet yet? We have only a few left…100 percent participation is our goal.

Every year, all parents in grades k-5 take the #NYCSchoolSurvey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. Complete the #NYCSchoolSurvey now at nycschoolsurvey.org. Or Bring in your completed envelope and we will pop it in the mail for you and your child will get a Unique Lower Lab Bracelet.

 Note: the short description of the idea for the Science Fair Project, the proposal, and the reports must be given to classroom teachers for Grades 3 and 4. Students of Grade 5 will submit all parts of their Science Fair Project to Claudia.

All final reports will be reviewed and returned to students at the conclusion of the oral presentations (after the Science Fair).

Please encourage children to begin to work on their projects early enough to avoid any last minute panic and stress.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Dr. Katarina H. Klaf
