P.S. 184Q School-wide Initiative
Welcome Back! We hope you enjoyed the summer. We are learning new routines and getting back to work. The 1st Grade teachers are in the process of assessing your child, to find out his/her correct reading level. This will be completed sometime in October. We started with the reading level from their last assessment in Kindergarten. If you think your child is reading a book that is not on his/her level, please be patient. All children will be assessed in a timely manner.
The First Grade Teachers
Just Say Hi! is a school-wide initiative that focuses on being welcoming and treating people with respect. Kind words make people feel happy or nice, and unkind words can hurt their feelings. Different people have different abilities. Everyone has strengths and also things that are hard for them. We treat all people with respect regardless of their abilities. Sometimes we have ideas about others that are based on the way they look or act which may not be true. These ideas can change the way we treat the other person. We may think that for people with different abilities (disabilities) they are not able to do certain things because of their disability. This is not always true. So remember to Just Say Hi!
PARP - Parents As Reading Partners
Please set aside time daily to read with your child and help foster a love of reading. All you need to do is take 15-30 minutes daily to read with your child. This is different from the nightly reading we do for class. During PARP time, either the adult or the child can read aloud to one another. Discussion around the content of the books/magazines should also be a part of this time. Your child should be able to choose any book/magazine they would like to read. This school initiative supports our school wide instructional focus of improving reading performance and progress for all our students. Please look for the special calendar each month in your child's homework folder. Send it back to school at the end of the month, filled in, and your child will receive a small prize.
