Our First Family Friday- 10/19/18

Our first Family Friday event was a great success. We had over 325 family members visit classrooms to share a truly memorable experience with our students. Our mentor text was the book Only One You, by Linda Kranz, which explores both self-acceptance and accepting others. We colored and painted rocks with designs that expressed our individual uniqueness. Check out some pictures from the event and keep an eye out for updates to our side garden. We will be decorating the space with our beautiful designs.

Thank you to all of our parents who collected and hauled over rocks to share!




Homework

We have fielded a lot of questions about our homework policy. Homework, at PS 154, has not been banned nor has it been eliminated.  Our objective is to be a responsive school that meets the individual needs of our students.

While some children benefit from reviewing class work at home, others do not.  As educators, we will make a determination about the most meaningful way to use homework as an instructional strategy. At minimum, every student should have a daily reading assignment.  Our upper grades (4-5) classes will assign more structured work so that students can begin to develop time-management skills.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher to discuss how homework fits into a daily plan.
