2016-2017 Parent Information: School Procedures

This will provide you with valuable information regarding general school procedures at PS 165Q. Please read it carefully. We are including it as a permanent section here on the PTA website to have it available to you as a quick reference when needed throughout the school year.

Please do not assume that your child will remember to give you notices or important messages that may come home throughout the year. Please check your child’s school bag daily to ensure that you receive all important school information in a timely manner and can respond within established deadlines.

Children need an extensive support system created by a Home-School Partnership.

Throughout your child’s academic career with us, we nurture this connection. Do not hesitate to call us with your concerns. Your call may be directed toour Parent Coordinator, who will assist you and your family. I urge you to come to school and meet Mrs. Friedman during the day or at our PTA meetings. Of course, it would be advisable if you called first as there are times when she must attend professional workshops outside the school.

A Chinese proverb relates that “Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.” I am looking forward to a wonderful new school year and to meeting you at our various performances, workshops and PTA meetings.

Please be sure to continually check the School Calendar and your child’s book bag for school notices and other communications.

Sincerely,

Tiffany Davis Nealy
Principal I.A.
