September, 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Welcome to the 2018/2019 school year.   As many of you may already know some exciting changes have taken place.  To begin with Grades 1-2 will be self-contained and grades 3-4 are departmentalized.

Grades 1 and 2 the students will only have their classroom teacher. Grades 3 and 4 the students will move between classes.  Each grade will have a homeroom where we will have morning prayer, announcements, attendance, as well as breakfast.

Outside food will not be permitted.

We must work together to ensure that your child has a positive and productive new year at Saint Joseph.  Therefore, we are asking you adhere to the following:

  • Students are expected to be in their homeroom by 8:00 am sharp, daily.

  • Students should be prepared daily with all materials needed (notebooks, pencils, folders, and textbooks).

  • Test papers and all graded assignments must be signed by a parents and returned to the teacher to be filed.  (see Google Classroom for announcements.)

  • All classwork and homework must be completed along with projects on time.

  • Daily lessons should be reviewed on a daily basis to prepare for assessments.

  • Visit the school website and Google Classroom for announcements, reminders, and homework @saintjosephschoolbronx.org.

  • Review student handbook for policies and return the last page singed acknowledging you have read the handbook.

Below is a list of supplies each student should donate to the classroom by September 14.  Thanking you in advance for your help and support.
