Dear Parents/Guardians of the PS 174 Family,

Welcome new and returning families. We are excited to kick off what we are sure will be another great year at PS 174. All of us at the school- teachers, administrators and support staff- are working hard to make sure that your child/children have a successful year of learning and growth. However, we know that we can’t do this alone. We need your support and involvement. The more involved you are in your child’s education, the more successful your child will be here.

One of the keys to your child’s success will be your ongoing involvement in our school community. Throughout the year, you will have opportunities to meet with your child’s teacher, attend informational sessions on the teaching approaches and participate in workshops on topics of special interest that will be planned and announced throughout the school year.

I urge you to join, attend the Parents’ Association meetings and events. It is an opportunity to meet other parents, to make new friends. The PA is a valuable source of information and support for you and will offer you opportunities to contribute to our school community.

I invite you to attend the many events we host to celebrate our student’s success. As your child’s first and most important teacher, we also need you to help us get to know your child so that we can offer him/her the best learning experience possible.

I am available to each and every one of you to provide information, answer questions, help you access resources for your child and help you resolve problems that you or your child may encounter in the school. Please feel free to come to my office, call me or email me when you need assistance.

All of us at PS 174 are very happy that you and your child are part of our family. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you and your child get settled into the new school year.
