A Message From the Principal . . .

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support this year.  It has been a pleasure watching your children become stronger academically and physically.  Please continue to work with your children over the 

summer so that they come back in September ready for the work ahead. 



We will send phone messages over the summer as gentle reminders that we are thinking about all of you and hope you are enjoying your time together.

Please be sure to visit the Mosholu Library located at
285 East 205 St. In addition to this, our website, www.ps94x.org, has a wealth of resources your children can use to reinforce previously learned concepts as well as learn new things.

  • KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS: They will have work packets to complete. If the work packets are returned in September 2014, they will receive 10 STAR TICKETS!!
  • THIRD AND FOURTH GRADE STUDENTS: (students who will be in fourth and fifth grade in September 2014) We have renewed our subscription for the online  reading program called myON Reader. Students who complete 15 book responses and return them in September to their NEW classroom will receive 10 STAR TICKETS!! (See parent flyer for more information) We will also be holding our annual SPELLING BEE OCTOBER 2014.  We have enclosed a practice list for students.
  • MATH CHALLENGE FOR THIRD AND FOURTH GRADE STUDENTS: (students who will be in fourth and fifth grade in September 2014) We will be starting the math challenge the last week in SEPTEMBER 2014. PRACTICE THOSE MATH FACTS OVER THE SUMMER!!!  You can logon to XTRA Math for extra help. (See parent flyer for more information.)

We will let you know when the uniform orders have arrived in case you would like to pick them up prior to the first day of school.  If you did not order the uniform, there will be another opportunity to do so when school begins in September.

Have a wonderful summer! See you in September!

Sincerely,
Diane DaProcida
