Learning Environment Survey!

The Learning Environment Surveys are here for the 2017-18 school year! This tool is so powerful because it gives our parent community the opportunity to have a voice and offer feedback. When completing the survey, you must only fill out one survey per school. If you have siblings in the school, please fill out the survey of the oldest child in our school. Surveys are due by March 23rd, 2018

We are also having a raffle for a new GOOGLE  HOME  MINI! When your child/parent gives back the survey completed, your child/parent will get a raffle ticket. In addition, all students will receive a homework pass for proof of a completed survey. 

To complete the survey on line, please click on this link:

                   * Click on Take the 2018 NYC School Survey online under "Parents & Guardians Survey"

                   * Proceed from there until the survey is complete

                   * Print out a copy of the completed survey notice to return to school
