Dear Parents,


            On behalf of the staff of P.S. 186, we would like to thank all of the parents we were able to meet with and talk to during our mid-November Parent-Teacher conferences.  We are proud to announce that 976 of our 995 parents came to meet with our teachers.  We hope that those parents who did not have the opportunity to come will reach out to schedule an appointment.  It’s wonderful to see the partnerships that have been formed and we look forward to working together to ensure a successful school year for your child!  We would also like to thank all of our families for their Penny Harvest contributions. Thanks to all the pennies that came in, we were able to collect 35 sacks of pennies, which means we collected almost 2,000 pounds of pennies!  Thank you for supporting our Book fair Fundraiser and sharing your love of reading with your children!


            We would like to thank all the parents who attended our workshop on “Parent Tech Time”.   It was wonderful to see how involved our families are in their child’s educational journey.  Based on the surveys that were returned, we look forward to scheduling future workshops on Go Math!, Journeys, Science, Social Studies, and “How to help your child meet the Common Core Standards”.  When we work together, we can help all children succeed.


                        Please continue to enforce good habits that include wearing school uniforms, completing homework, coming to school on time prepared with the right tools to succeed!  Please take the time to review the important dates below.  May this joyous holiday season be a time of recreation and relaxation with family and friends.
