A Message From the Principal
To Our PS/MS 71 Families,
I hope you enjoyed the February Break and had an opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends. As we move into the month of March and welcome Spring, I would like to take this opportunity to share some highlights and upcoming news.
Our teachers and students have been working productively since the beginning of the school year to prepare our students to be successful on the NYS Exams. Our curriculum, programs, and resources were designed to support teachers in planning and implementing daily lessons that embed the skills and strategies being measured. During daily instruction, students are engaged in rigorous lessons and activities that promote critical thinking, problem solving and analytical skills.
Our instructional focus on independent reading and writing has provided opportunities for students to read and write daily for a variety of purposes and audiences across all content areas. Students are building fluency, stamina, and making their thinking visible through writing and as they engage in student-led discussions.
Upon completion of three units of study in reading and writing, students have increased their writing stamina and have shown growth in developing pieces that are more detailed, descriptive, and well structured. We are proud of their efforts and accomplishments.
