Ms. Waleska Bonifacio
Welcome to the New School Year 2019 - 2020
I hope your summer has been relaxing and that you are readily awaiting the start of the 2019-2020 academic year! Here at School for Excellence we are excited to share in another successful year of academics, family partnerships and school community. That said, I would like to officially welcome you and your family to the new school year!
Firstly, thank you again for giving me the opportunity to serve you and your family as a Parent Coordinator, and allowing for a partnership founded in trust and the shared mission of excellence in education. It is with great honor that I will continue encouraging your child to learn, teach them how to prepare for college and careers and advise them about their future from the moment they re-enter our doors on September 5th, 2019. I have been very active throughout the summer preparing for the arrival of our students and families. I am especially excited about this coming year because I have the opportunity to continue to work with all of you! As part of a dedicated team of staff, and a caring and supportive community of parents, I am confident that we can make this a hugely positive and prosperous year for our students.
As an added resource, you can visit us at www.schoolforexcellence.org which will serve as a tool for accessing useful information including school events, important reminders and you can stay in the loop with all the wonderful things our students and teachers are doing. I will also post all dates for Parent Association meetings throughout the year.
Please enjoy the wonderful days that remain before the school year commences. I look forward to seeing all of our students on our first day back. If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me by email Wbonifacio@schools.nyc.gov or via telephone (718) 860-1385 Ext: 4283
