Parents in the Know

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

As you may or may not be aware, The New York Education Department (NYSED) has made significant changes to the 2016 Grades 3-8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Tests.   As a result of this, I would like to schedule a Parent meeting on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016 starting at 5:00 P.M. to discuss these changes.  I believe it to be important that parents are kept in the loop.

Topics to be discussed are: what are these changes, what do these changes mean for your child, and what will the new tests look like. 

Grades 3 and 4 at 5:00 PM

Grades 5 and 6 at 6:00 PM

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.


Lawford M. Cunningham
