Week of  September 9th  – 13th:

 

Dear Members of the MHA PS 65x Community:

 

            Welcome to a wonderful New “School” Year 2013-2014.  As we prepare to meet our wonderful new impressionable-minds and courageous hearts, kindly keep in mind the Danielson 2013 Framework Domain 2: Class Culture and Environment, and our school-wide PBIS Philosophy and Expectation.  The PBIS matrix and lesson plan, “How are you Peeling?” may be found on our MHA website:  https://sites.google.com/a/mha65.org/p-s-65x-pbis-site-page/.

 

            Please refer to our Teacher Resource page (https://sites.google.com/a/mha65.org/www/teacher-resource) for the NYCDOE photograph release form to be completed by student’s parents/guardians prior to any photographing of our students, etc.

 

            All Classroom Teachers:

·         Please refer to Ms. Gonzalez’ email regarding scheduling your next PD with ReadyGen and Go Math.

All Enrichment Teachers are to report to their Small Group Instruction (SGI) classroom by 1:05 p.m. the latest.  Please be sure to articulate with the classroom teacher prior to the SGI period each day to learn how you may best support student instruction and instruction delivery.  Please review your MHA email for the suggested Lesson Plan Template.

 

We encourage all MHA staff members to check their NYCDOE and MHA email accounts daily for up to date information and deadline notices.  Please communicate with both Ms. Presto and Ms. DeMichele as to the deadline dates that baseline assessments should be completed and results are to be submitted via email to both Administration and Coaches.
