Dear Parents,


On behalf of the Acting State District Superintendent of Schools, Eileen Shafer, and the staff and community of Public School Number 25, we want to welcome you to the 2017–2018 school year. Just like our students are, our staff members are excited about this new school year.


Clearly, the beginning of every school year initiates changes, transition, and newness. Students are excited about their new grade levels, new teachers, new classmates, and new learning opportunities. It is thus the joint responsibility of administrators, staff, and parents to maintain and continue to stimulate our students’ sense of excitement and anticipation for effective education throughout the entire coming year.


To that end, the staff members of Public School Number 25 are deeply committed to the essential work required each day to deliver exceptional learning. We understand the need to provide young people with the opportunities they need to build successful futures and prepare them to make important contributions to their community in the years ahead. As parents, you have a tough job, and we are more than proud to join with you, as you meet the unprecedented challenges of assisting us in educating your child for success in the 21st century.


Whether this is your first year at Public School Number 25 or your seventh, we hope your participation in our school will help you become an even better educational partner. We are more than pleased to partner with you in this exciting environment and take the upcoming educational journey together.


You’ll notice we have a continued focus in this year’s agenda on creating a positive school culture. Having every student participate in our School’s Uniform Code is imperative, as doing so provides an ongoing foundation to help all students continue to achieve and have healthy and successful lives.


As you pass through the next few weeks, we hope you’ll take full advantage of the variety of resources we will offer this year, whether that involves learning more about our Effective School Model, attending formal presentations, participating in informal conversations and networking, or engaging in our planned events. Please do take some time to relax and celebrate your accomplishments as parents at one of our Home School Council meetings.


Public School Number 25 is committed to providing the best education possible for each of its students. We believe that every child can and will learn at his or her full potential. Our mission is preparing all children for college and career and life. Together, we can meet our goal of "Learning for all—Whatever it takes." We understand that strong schools lead to strong communities, so we look forward to having a very successful 2017–2018 school year.


Again, welcome to what we believe will be a truly exciting and successful school year. Do remember that all students should arrive at school wearing their school uniforms! If you have any questions, please contact us at 973-321-0250.
