    Principal's weekly letter 2/16/2024

    February 16, 2024

    Dear Families,

    I hope all is well.  We had a wonderful Respect for All and Spirit Week at IS230.  Our students engaged in workshops that focused on Bullying, Cyber Bullying, Discrimination, and Preventing Sexual Harassment.  Our Student Government Representatives, Guidance Counselors and Members of the 115th PCT  presented at the workshops.  We ended the week with our Multicultural Day Celebration.   It was wonderful to see all the students and staff represent the different cultures and ethnicities that make IS230 and Jackson Heights such a melting pot.

    I am excited and extremely proud to announce that we currently have 9 students who were awarded scholarships to attend a Summer Law Institute sponsored by one of our partners Legal Outreach. These students will attend one of the following law Schools for 5 weeks beginning July 1, 2024: Fordham, NYU, Columbia, St Johns, Brooklyn College.  After students complete the institute they will have an opportunity to continue in the program in high school then apply for a college of their choice and be awarded a full ride.

ELA enrichment classes will meet on Tuesdays from 2:30 PM- 4:30 PM.  Math enrichment classes will meet on Wednesday’s from 2:30-4:30 p.m. The Enrichment Program is designed to help students prepare for either the ELA or Math State Exam. Your child will meet with an ELA or Math teacher once a week after school to practice going over test taking strategies and review state exams from the past years. This is a voluntary program and not mandatory.  In order to participate permissions slips must be returned to your child ELA or Math teacher. Classes are formed on a first come, first serve basis and there is not a guarantee of a class after this date. 

    Our next PTA meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 28th followed by an Elevate Education workshop focusing on overcoming procrastination.  To increase Parent and Student turn out at our PTA meetings, parents who bring their IS230 child to the meeting and stay until the end their child will receive 2 hours of community service.  Community service is a graduation requirement here at IS230.

    On March 1st as a College Access for All School we will be participating in a citywide initiative on March 1, 2024.  The goal of the event is to immerse our students in the options available to them after graduating from high school. Dress attire: we would love all students wear college (t-shirts, sweatshirts)  attire or dress up as the Profession they wish to pursue.

    A message from our P.T.A President Suni A. Andriotis.  The P.T.A is looking for Parent volunteers to represent the P.T.A in the classroom. These parent leaders will assist the P.T.A in maintaining communication between their children's classroom and the P.T.A to ensure that all parents are informed of important P.T.A events taking place and that the P.T.A is informed of concerns or suggestions that parents might have. If you are interested in becoming a Parent Volunteer Classroom leader, please reach out to Mr. Salazar with your name, your child’s name and class number.

    A PTA donation letter was sent out to the home with the students. We are currently asking for your help in donating time and/or money. There is no monetary amount and parents are free to donate whatever they are able to do so. You can bring your donations to the main office located in the main building and place them in the PTA donation box or you can make a deposit via our PayPal account. The information for the PayPal account is in the school website.
