Teacher Appreciation Week:
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we are asking P.S. 59 families to help recognize and celebrate all the hard work and dedication of our teachers. We are asking each family to provide a short paragraph expressing their gratitude to their child’s teacher and anything that might highlight the special ways the teacher has helped in supporting learning. We will display all the wonderful words and experiences that our families are sharing, so please be sure to come back and check out our “We Love Our Teachers” wall all week long.
On Friday, our PTA is throwing a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, sponsored by Burrito Bar on Forest Ave, for our amazing teachers and support staff on Friday, May 5th. If you would like to contribute desserts for this occasion, please drop them off to the school on Friday between 7:30-9:30 am. Thank you for your participation and helping us show our teachers how much we appreciate all they do!
Student Led Conferences:
On Wednesday, May 17th we will be hosting the last evening conference scheduled for this year.
This evening is very exciting and important for many reasons. The students will be given the opportunity to be reflective and think about the goals they set for themselves throughout the year. They will not only be reflecting on their learning and progress made this year, but also thinking about the process to get to that point. Providing opportunities for them to talk about it gives them ownership and pride in their accomplishments. We hope you can join us for this important event in your child’s academic success.
There will be two time slots offered for this evening, 5pm – 6pm and 7pm -8pm. Please register for your preferred time slot by registering at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4da9ad2ca2f58-student before Friday, May 12th 2017.
