Hello Spring!


Principals Corner

Friday May 8, 2020
Dear PS 38 Families,
We would like you to know that your PS 38 family misses you all. Every Year we engage
families in May Parent Teacher Conferences to discuss your child’s progress. This year,
while our circumstances may be different, we are pleased to say we will still be hosting
PTCs, however in a more flexible manner.
Please make sure to visit your child’s Google Classroom on Monday May 11 and Tuesday
May 12 to take a short survey and select a day and time that is suitable for you to meet
with your child’s teacher.
We look forward to engaging in brief meetings to share your child’s glows and grows.
Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
Partners With Families…Partners In Learning
Believing In Children...
Inspiring Young Minds,
Nancy Murillo

Summer School 2020

May 20, 2020
Dear Families,
Earlier this week, we announced our plans for summer learning, to ensure that our students can continue to engage
and receive the academic supports they need to be ready for returning to school in the fall. We are writing to you
today with an update on the summer calendar, informed by feedback from DOE communities.

For elementary and middle school students who are required or recommended to attend summer school, the
program will start one week earlier and will run from Monday, July 6 – Tuesday, August 11. There is no change
to the duration or structure of the program.

For high school students who are attending summer school, courses will also start one week earlier and will run
from Monday, July 6 – Friday, August 14. There is no change to the duration or structure of this program either.
For students with 12-month Individualized Education Plan (IEPs) services, there will be no change to the calendar.

Our teachers start on Wednesday, July 1 and students are expected to participate from Thursday, July 2–
Thursday, August 13.

These changes will help accelerate learning for all students. Beginning summer school earlier—closer to the end
of the regular school year—allows for continuous learning for students. Concluding programs earlier also allows
more time for continuous rest for your family in the month of August.

We appreciate your ongoing patience and flexibility as we adapt to this crisis in real time. Nothing is more
important than the health, safety, and continued academic success of your child: we thank you for your partnership
in this important endeavor now more than ever.

Important School Reminders

State Exams - This year, the administration of the NY State English Language Arts, Math, and Science tests are suspended. The NYC Department of Education (DOE) is working with the New York State Education Department (NYSED) on guidance for state assessments scheduled to be administered once traditional in-school instruction resumes. However, this situation is evolving rapidly, and the DOE will work with NYSED to continue to communicate with schools as more information becomes available.

PAX means Peace

The PAX Good Behavior game teaches students to “flip on” their internal focus switch, required for any learning.

 It teaches students how to work toward valued goals, and teaches them how to cooperate with each other to reach those goals. 

 Students learn how to self-regulate during both learning and fun. Students learn how to delay gratification for a bigger goal. 
PAX also significantly improves multiple measures of academic success such as reading test scores, high-school graduation and university entry.
