Welcome to 316-A!

Welcome Parents/Guardians!

 We warmly welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. We look forward to working with you throughout the school year to help your child reach his/her fullest potential. We are looking forward to meeting with you all at back to school night. We truly enjoy working with each student and can't wait to see how much they will grow academically as the year progresses.  

Homework is essential in order for students to obtain academic growth. In addition, it is a practice of the skills we have done in class. Please make sure students are completing homework on a daily basis. They will be receiving homework in their planners, or printed in a packet form. On Fridays, we will not give students homework (other than reading) unless we have a long break. Please make sure students are reading on a daily basis for it will help them develop essential skills to succeed.

We strongly believe that communication is a KEY for the success of our students. It is a way we can work TOGETHER to help your children succeed. Students are bringing home many important documents on a daily basis in their blue communication folder. If you have a note for me, or any concern please place it in this folder. In addition, students will be receiving handouts for you that will go in this folder. If a student is absent, please send in a proof of absence form in their communication folder to submit to the office. You may also communicate myself or Ms. McLaughlin through EMAIL: Efitzgibbons2@10x094.org  KMclaughlin4@10x094.org or any time on Tuesdays between 2:30-3:00.  We are located in the annex building, on the third floor, in room 316. In addition, please let us know if you are available for any type of volunteer work during the school year (class trips, celebrations, parent/student learning opportunities, classroom visits, ec). We am  firm believers that you should be able to experience learning with your children.Therefore, we will be sending notes home on opportunities for parent involvement in the classroom. Again, please feel free to use any of the listed above to communicate any concerns or questions you may have!  We want this to be a smooth year for all of us.  Thank you so much for being the biggest supporters.  Looking forward for all the success this school year has to offer! 

 Warm regards,

Ms. Fitzgibbons & Ms. McLaughlin

We raised $473.72 for pennies for patients. Woo hoo!! Thank you parents and students!!! 

Hi all,

Hope you have been well. Students are going to be participating in a T.I.G.E.R. Day reading challenge. This is hosted by our librarians, Ms. Clarke and Ms. Martino. The goal is to get students involved in reading and to think about goal setting for themselves. We will be sending home the T.I.G.E.R packets today 4/11/19. They are due Friday, May 3, 2019. If your child completes the entire packet thoroughly, they earn a medal and will be presented with it at a school wide assembly. More details on that to come. If you wish to have your child hand it in BEFORE May 3, I can keep it locked away safely in my desk for them. Any questions, please reach out to us as always.

It is an amazing resource for all levels and all ages. Please have your child use this at home! We can track their progress and see which skills they still need to improve on. Their username and password are the same. The teacher code is efitzgibbons0.
