Dear Parents Guardians,

As the month of September closes there are few important announcements, Please
remember that October 17, ends with the first marking period. Parent teacher
conferences will also be held October 23rd evening and October 24th daytime. More
information will follow with exact times. You must continue to support your child with
all endeavors. This time is very critical; they must stay focused and believe in
themselves. They are paving their future. We here at the DreamYard Preparatory School
believe that our students/children have a right to a fair and equitable education. We will
prepare them to compete and go to college. Make sure that your child is signed up with
“The College Board” If you require any further assistance you can log into
www.collegeboard.com, or call Ms. Perkinson , the Academic Guidance Counselor at the
school.
Many trips are coming up during this month and it is important that your child has been
in compliance with the uniform policy and not had any disciplinary issues in order to
participate. The Parent Association elections are October 7th at 6:00pm. I plead with
you to become involved. Every NYC public school is required by law to have an active
Parent Association. These elections are important in continuing to support your child
and the school they attend. I look forward to seeing you all on this very important date.

Regards,
Barbara Martoral
