From the Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Our school wide instructional focus for the 2014-2015 academic year is that all students will look at complex text through daily instruction across all subject areas. We ask you to encourage your children to read everyday. Our goal at IS 131 is to recognize students reading independently as a part of our "Get Caught Reading" initiative. Every student was given a reading tracker and we encourage them to complete it every night.

Be sure to check your Engrade accounts for important messages from your child's teacher. Open lines of communication are essential to the success of your child's education.
