Principal's February Message
Dear Eastwood Parents,
February marks the beginning of Black History Month, an annual celebration that has existed since the early 1900's. Dr. Carter G. Woodson is known as the Father of Black History. He was an African American, historian, minister, scholar - teacher, principal, supervisor of schools, and the second African American to earn a doctorate from Harvard University. We salute Dr. Carter G. Woodson as we celebrate Black History Month! While February has the least amount of school days, it is a busy month for our Eastwood Family. During the month of February, we will be honoring Jump Rope for Heart, Red & White Ball for Students, Black History Assembly, Respect For All Week, Chinese New Year and·the 100th Day Celebration! Notifications will be forthcoming for our uocomin events.
This is the Department of Education's annual month to distribute promotion in doubt letters. These letters are distributed to
parents/guardians whose child's academic average in reading or math is below or approaching their grade level standard. If you received a promotion in doubt letter, please feel free to utilize Tuesday's Parent Contact Meeting Days from 2:30-3:35 pm to discuss your child's progress and how you can assist.
Character Education Matters at P.S 95! The trait for February is UNITY: Fairness/Justice - find ways to share, take turns, include others in games and activities, don't leave people out, and respect people who are different from you. Each character trait is aligned to our curriculum and in depth discussions will be held in the classroom around this trait. Please make sure your children are appropriately dressed for the weather. The wind and the cold are brutal, even the walk from the bus or car to the main entrance can be dangerous. Please make sure your children's heads and hands are covered. Great things are happening at the Eastwood School, if you have time please consider becoming a volunteer by enrolling to be a Learning Leader.
Kim Hill, Principal
