A Message from the Principal

 

Principal's weekly Message

May 7, 2021

Dear PS 64 Families,

Today, a First Friday, marks the final day in our week-long celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week.  If you have not done so yet, I invite you to share a note of thanks to your child’s teacher by using this Thank a Teacher tool.  You will need to know your teacher’s DOE email address.  If you don’t know it, please email me at mhosang@schools.nyc.gov and I will send it to you.  Thank you, teachers, for your service.  You are stars! 

  • The NYS math exam was administered this week to all students in grades 3 through 5.  Many thanks to Ms. Stone and Mr. Perl for coordinating this.  We will use the information to plan for the fall.  
  • The Summer Rising application portal is now open.  All students in grades K through 5 are invited to enroll using the following link: Summer Rising.   Don’t forget that Ann and Esther are here from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to walk you through the registration process. With the mayor’s announcement of a full opening of our city on July 1, we are joyfully excited to be together again this summer, and in September. 
  • Email Ann Gonzalez at agonzal@schools.nyc.gov if you would like a DOE issued iPad that comes with a data plan.  Even if you don’t need it now, it’s good to have as a backup. 
  • Student Council has kicked off a fundraiser to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Hero Squad Program, formerly known as Pennies for Patients.  Our school fundraiser will be held May 3-21and money can be raised both in person and virtually. Please visit the PS 64 school page to donate, and every dollar counts!

May is traditionally the month of the mother.  We honor all of our mothers in a very special way on Sunday, Mother’s Day.  We especially remember the loving memories of those no longer with us and, as yesterday was the National Day of Prayer, it is right and just that we pray for them, now and always.   

Also, yesterday was National Nurses Day, so we give thanks for our extraordinary nurses, Wendy Guerrero and Valarie Paterson.  We are lucky to have the Ryan Health SBHC at our school and even luckier to have Nurses Wendy and Valarie.  Thank you, good ladies.

…And, speaking of mothers, our very own new-mom Ms. Desroches returns to us from maternity leave on Monday.  We love you, Ms. D, and have missed you very much.  Welcome back! 

A very happy and peaceful Mother’s Day to all of our PS 64 mothers!  Without you, there is no life.  So, we give thanks for the extraordinary gift you have given us.  We share with you some beautiful lyrics from the Beatles.

When I find myself in times of trouble

Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom

Let it be…

Peace,

Marlon L. Hosang
Principal
