Message from Ms. Hasweh - 11/17/2022

Dear Harbor View School Families, 

The month of November is always exciting for our Harbor View staff.  It is a time of the year for us to connect with families and share all we have learned about your child.  We are making note of the social emotional needs of students through our Responsive Classroom routines.  We have collected academic information in all subject areas to best serve every student at the Harbor View School.  

As a community, we are committed to creating systems that ensure that every student succeeds in our school.  We believe that our partnership with families is a crucial part of our success as a school community.  We are working closely with teacher teams to ensure that families are informed about their child’s performance levels in English Language Arts and Math throughout the school year.  

In the 2022/2023 school year, every student will have an orange Harbor View School assessment folder.  This folder will be sent home monthly by all teachers in grades K-5 to communicate student performance in ELA and Math.  Teachers will share important assessment information in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.  

We ask that families review the contents of their child’s folder and return it to their child’s teacher within the week.  Please ensure that all assessment documents remain in the folder and are also returned to school.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.  


Hanin Hasweh

Little Amal Walks NYC -9/30/2022

What an amazing night we had with Little Amal Walks NYC: Little butterfly, don’t be afraid! It was a privilege to work with our friends at the Noble Museum and Artist Lina Montoya. Ms. Montoya visited our school and worked with our 4th and 5th grade students. They made over 75 butterflies that were used during the parade through Snug Harbor.

This was an very special and touching global event. Following Little Amal around tonight was heartwarming history in the making!
