Principal’s Weekly Update 11/21/21
Dear Parents and Guardians of the Flushing Manor Community,
As we approach this short week and the upcoming holiday, I would like to wish all of our families a safe and healthy Thanksgiving holiday! I would like to share this quote about gratitude.
“Enjoy the little things for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
Here are this week’s updates and reminders.
Social Worker Update:
Welcome to our full time Social Worker, Ms. Rafeena Habibulla. Ms Habibulla has already started to support our work with students in social emotional learning over the past week and will work closely with our Guidance Counselor and CASE and DESSA implementation team to address the needs of specific students and their families. She will be introducing herself to families as well in the coming weeks. We welcome her to P.S.184Q.
Parent Coordinator Update:
We hope to be introducing our parent coordinator soon. Processing through central DOE systems has been delayed for many applicants in the process of being hired. We know how essential this support can be for our families!
Additional Math support:
The NYSED is providing a software program called First in Math to K-5 students. We have used this program in the past and it supports fluency with an interactive online game where children can have fun while practicing and memorizing number facts. Students can log in through teach hub more information about the program can be found here:
Food Drive: Thank you to all those who participated in the food drive. We are proud of our student council for thinking of others!
