Dear Members of the MHA PS 65x Community:

 

Thank you very much for making our Parent-Teacher Conference and Book Fair a success.

 

This week is Open School Week:  Our first grade teachers and students will have a Literacy Celebration and Social Studies event with their parents from 8:50-10:30 a.m.  Please stop by and enjoy this community event if you have a chance.  Additionally, the Book Fair is scheduled to continue through Tuesday, November 19th.


Please note that there is a revised MASS PREP Schedule.  Please check the office to receive an updated copy.

 

Additionally, we encourage all MHA staff members to check their NYCDOE and MHA email accounts daily for up to date information and deadline notices. 

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Reminders:

·         Teachers attending workshops out of the building are to email the grade facilitator, Ms. Gonzalez and Me their lesson plan for the substitute teacher, by 3 p.m. the day before the date of the workshop.  Additionally, log on to Sub Central and order a sub-teacher ASAP.

·         Students will be allowed into the auditorium approximately 7:55 a.m.
