Parents in the Know

Dear Parents:

On behalf of the staff at Icahn Charter School 5, I am happy to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year!  We are looking forward to a very productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.  We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school.  We are aware that a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child's education.  We ask that you guide and support your child's learning by ensuring that he/she:

1. Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day's learning experience.
2. Completes ALL homework assignments given by teachers
3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills.
4. Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.

The staff at Icahn Charter School 5 and I thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.  See you all on September 8th, 2014.

Icahn Charter School 5.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

I really cannot believe this school year is over!  It seemed like yesterday we were celebrating a new school year with our Back to School event welcoming both parents and students to another school year.

The end of the year seems to always arrive before we know it.  The thoughts of the end of the year festivities, summer fast approaching, and other outside activities can at times become a distraction from what is most important.  Please continue to encourage your child to put his/her best foot forward, and to read on a daily basis.

Our staff would like to extend a special thank you to our parent volunteers this past school year.  Chaperoning a trip is not always easy, especially having to take the day off from work to attend.  Thank you to all the parents who attended the many workshops we conducted throughout the year.  The workshops were always planned with the students' best interest at the forefront.  We hope to have many more informative workshops next school year.

As a staff our dedication is to your child.  Your child is our child!!!  It was a pleasure working alongside each and every one of you this school year in developing our future leaders.  Please continue the great work!  

Don't forget to have your child read daily!

Monday, September 8th, 2014 is the start of another school year.  We'll see you in a few short weeks!
