A Message from the Principal



Principal’s Weekly Message

October 22, 2021

Dear PS 64 Families,

Halloween is quickly approaching and, as is our tradition, we will celebrate in a very special way.  Next Friday, October 29, will be Halloween 2021—PS 64 style!  Students and staff are invited to arrive to school in costume, as we are planning for a fun-filled and COVID safe day of festivities.  We will begin with the annual tradition of a parade around the block.  Our PTA and afterschool staff will host a scaled-down, physically distant, Spook-a-Rama, on the second floor.  All classrooms will engage in Halloween activities and movies. The only thing we must avoid, in light of the pandemic, is the eating of treats in the classroom.  Students will be given individual baggies of goodies to take home and enjoy.    

Our PTA meeting on Wednesday was poorly attended.  We will continue to work on getting more families to attend the meetings.  Since this was our first attempt at an in-person meeting, perhaps we will try a virtual one next?  You will be receiving an electronic message to vote on whether you are in favor or against a school uniform policy. 

There is some exciting work being accomplished across the entire Department of Education with regards to social emotional learning (SEL) for every student and the impact of the pandemic.  See the attached letter.  

Wishing you a restful and peaceful weekend, I remain,

Very truly yours,

Marlon L. Hosang
