Dear Parents and Guardians:
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! My name is Chantai Jimenez, I am the assistant principal supporting kindergarten and first grade for the upcoming school year. I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome. I am excited and honored to be a part of your child's education.
Please take comfort in knowing you have chosen a school where learning takes place in a safe environment, where children are supported emotionally and academically through focused, rigorous instruction that meets the unique needs of each student. Your child will learn how to read, write and how to think critically. They will have plenty of opportunities to express their learning by creating projects and having conversations with their peers. Not only will each child create projects during school hours but projects will also be sent home. We ask that you take that time to work closely with your child and support them as they learn to take pride in their work. Another way you can support your child at home is to review your child’s yellow folder every night and ask questions about what they learned in school. Please note that all of our students receive homework daily.
Collaboration, cooperation, and open communication between home and school are the keys to building a strong foundation for a successful school year. Please feel free to contact me at anytime. I can be reached at (718) 435-6012 or via e-mail at CJimenez8@schols.nyc.gov. If you would like to talk in person, I am always available to schedule appointments before and after school.
Assistant Principal I.A
