Principal's Corner


To the SFE Community,


We would like to wish all those in the School for Excellence community a Happy Thanksgiving.

The first marking period has ended and we are now in the second marking period. I hope all of our students had a great first marking period. Any student who did not do well in the first marking period should seek help from their teachers and guidance counselors. It is not too late the pass the class for the semester. Parents and guardians, please make sure that your child is studying and keeping up with his or her work. Students, complete all assigned work and make a habit of studying the days notes.

Our staff will continue to send Kinvolved text messages to parents and guardians. Another tool to keep up with your child is through IOeducation/Pupilpath. The website for this is ioeducation.com. Parents and guardians can keep up with their child's attendance and classwork assignments.

Your child has access on our online IXL Math website at IXL.com. They have been given a User Name and Password. This is a great tool for students to use to improve their math skills.

Mid terms start 12/4/17. Please make sure your child is preparing for these tests.

Our afterschool program is up and running. See Events on this page for details. Saturday school has started. We have Math, Language and Art class. The hours are 9:00-12:00.

If you have any questions or need to contact me please e mail me at jhousto@schools.nyc.gov or call the school at 718-860-1385.
