A Message from Our Principal
Dear P.S. 21 Families,
As I look back on this year, I can say that it has been filled with many wonderful celebrations of learning.
As I passed through the halls, I saw students being respectful, being responsible and being kind. I saw smiles and laughter and a wonderful connection between teachers and students. I saw confident youngsters ready to take on the next grade.
I would like to congratulate our graduating class of 2017. I wish every student success as they move on to middle school! I know they will take with them all of the lessons learned here at P.S.21 and make us and themselves proud.
All of our students have worked hard all year long and I wish everyone a relaxing, memorable and well-deserved summer. Please remember that over the summer, it is important to keep your children's minds engaged and active. We ask that all of our students participate in our summer challenges handed out.
We have a reading challenge. We ask that your child read independently or be read to for a minimum of twenty times per month. Students are provided word lists which we suggest our students to memorize over the summer in order to build upon their sight word vocabulary.
Incoming students of grades 3-5 are provided with summer challenge notebooks and are encouraged to write a minimum of twenty-five entries over the summer, which can later in the year serve as seed ideas for writing stories.
A calendar is given to students with ideas and activities to support mathematical thinking over the summer. It is suggested that the students complete at least twenty-five activities over the course of the summer.
All students who participate in the summer challenges will be recognized in the fall on our summer challenge super star Bulletin board, be awarded with certificate(s) of achievement and be invited to a yummy ice cream party celebration.
Spend quality time together and create special memories that they can come back and share in September. Please check out our website for any updates.
I wish you all a happy, safe and enjoyable summer break! See you back in September!!!
Michael Swirsky Principal
