A Message From the Principal
As we end of the school year, it is important to think back and reflect of how proud we are of all of your children. Each child has grown so much as a reader this year. Each day, the students in the PS71 community have enjoyed spending time reading in school. This time has been so valuable, as it gives your child the opportunity to practice reading strategies that he or she has learned throughout the year.
It can be said without hesitation that the best way to become a better reader is to spend time reading. We want to ensure that the every student at PS71 is encouraged to continue his or her habit of spending time reading each day while enjoying the summer. As you can see from the data below, spending just 20 minutes of reading time each day will make a dramatic difference in your child’s success in the upcoming school year.
To help, your child is being sent home with some summer reading activities and resources, including a daily interactive summer reading calendar. Completion of these activities and using the provided resources will help in holding your child accountable to reading and writing each day. It will also be a great way to show your child’s new teacher all of the reading that he or she enjoyed over the summer. All your child will need to complete these activities is a notebook and access to books!
Thank you for being a partner with the PS71 community in encouraging your child to discover the value and enjoyment in reading! Wishing you and your family a very relaxing safe and fun filled summer! We look forward to seeing your children back on September 5th.

Principal Margaret Mirando
