Week of  November 4th – November 8th :   

 

Dear Members of the MHA PS 65x Community:

 

Happy November!!!!

 

Thank you to Mr. Rollins, Angel, Craig, Mitch and Ramon for creating the Haunted House for all the children of the MHA campus.  The student helpers did a stupendous job in making a memorial event for the students of both schools; creating the perfect community service event.

 

Teachers: please be sure to notify both Ms. T. Rivera and Mr. Adler of any students that are on your roster but have not attended school or with more than two (2) days of absences.  Additionally, please ensure that you are in possession of the cumulative folder of each child that is present in your classroom.

 

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 any additional support you seek with the new curriculum. Administrative class walk-throughs will be continuing into the month of November; as to not interrupt the lesson, please have your lesson plan available for our review.

 

Friday is “wear pink” day.  Please assist your students in creating (coloring, etc.) paraphernalia that they can proudly wear on Friday. 

 

Thank you for your continued support.
