    Principal's weekly letter 6/21/24

    June 21, 2024

    Dear Families,

    I want to congratulate the class of 2024 on your graduation!! We are very proud of all that you accomplished during your time at IS230.  We wish you the best of luck in High School and beyond.

    8th grade students if you would like to donate your uniform for future IS230 students you may drop them off in the main building by the school safety desk. We had over 300 uniforms donated last year, and all the uniforms were distributed by the end of  November.

    6th and 7th grade families the window to order uniforms is now open.  If you want to ensure you receive your new uniform by the start of the school year, please ensure you place your order by August 6th.  If you need help with sizing information please make an appointment with Mr. Salazar and he can show you samples.

    On Friday, June 21, 2024 we hosted Legal Outreach Summer Law Institute. They presented  lessons to our 7th grade students focusing on “know your rights.” The lessons were specially designed to help middle school students better understand the legal system and their rights.  To learn more about our partnership with legal outreach please click on the link below:

    On Monday, June 24th at 9:15 a.m. select 8th grade students who qualified will be taking the Spanish Language Proficiency Exam.

    On Monday, June 24th at 6:00 p.m. we are hosting a high school application workshop for 7th grade families and interested 6th grade families.  The goal of the workshop is to help guide families through the high school application process. The interactive workshop will be led by our guidance counselor and translated in Spanish.

    On Tuesday, June 25th the main building cafeteria will be used as a polling site, so breakfast will be served as a grab and go. Lunch will also be served as a grab and go. Students will eat in the auditorium. 

    This will be my last letter to families for the 2023-2024 School Year.  I want to thank all the members of our school community for another successful school year.  As the school year comes to an end I want to highlight some of the amazing accomplishments we had as a school community:

    • City Wide Debate Champions
    • E-Sports Five Borough Champions
    • Girls Basketball Team Making the Playoffs
    • Finding Nemo The Musical
    • IS230 Mets Game Outing
    • SLT created a IS230 Family Handbook for the 2024-25 School year
    • Family Math Night
    • PTA Family Fun Night
    • Increased Student Government participation
    • Over 400 students sat for a Regents Exam
    • Tremendous growth in our I-Ready ELA/Math and Amplify Science
    • Number of Staff members trained in Tier 1 Restorative Justice Practices
    • After School Academic Support Programs
    • Monthly CR-SE celebrations
    • JA Day, Legal Outreach, Mentoring in Medicine and Planned Parenthood Partnerships
    • Winter and Spring Dances
    • Grade Level Field Trips
    • Concerts and Art Shows

    Some goals that we as a school community want to work towards and improve on for the 2024-25 school year:

    We will continue to expand our regents program as we had a very successful second year expansion. 

    We will be implementing homeroom at IS230 for the 2024-25 school year.  Homeroom will take place from 8:00 to 8:20 a.m. every morning.  The purpose of Homeroom is to provide a space for our staff and students to take attendance, conduct announcements and most importantly an opportunity to connect with their peers in a meaningful way before starting the day.

    We will continue to enforce our Cell Phone Policy; we are going to do our best to have a cell phone free school.  We will still allow students to bring cell phones to school, but the expectations is that the cell phones are turned off and put away in their book bag prior to entering the school building.  If we see a cell phone out in a classroom, hallway, or cafeteria we will ask the student to hand in the cell phone and we will give the cell phone back to the student at the end of the day.  If it happens multiple times then we will ask parents/guardians to come and collect the phone. If you need to reach your child you can call the main office and if your child needs to reach you they can use a phone in the main office.  We are implementing this to reduce the number of distractions and reduce the amount of cyber bullying

    Uniform Policy; we are going to do our best to increase the number of students following the uniform policy that was voted and agreed upon by the school community.  We have worked with Smooth the company that handles our uniform orders to ensure uniforms arrive before school starts if ordered on time.
