How Do I Learn About What’s Going on in the School?
**The Weekly Bulletin: Each Thursday, you’ll find a bulletin in your child’s folder with the latest school and PTA information, including a report by Principal Mazza, reminders of important dates, PTA news and events, and more. This is the most complete and convenient source of information, so don’t miss it! We’ll also send a digital version to every member of the PS 295 Group (see below). Below please find the most recent version.
**PS 295 Group: This is the place to get answers from your fellow parents for all your PS 295 questions. Request to join or email our VP of Parent Engagement for an invitation!
**School-wide Email list: Email the VP of Parent Engagement to be added
How do I Find Out Updates About My Child’s Class?
**Class Parents: Class Parents share information from the teacher(s) and PTA; including updates about school and classroom activities (eg. field trips, parties, snacks/supplies, news, events, etc). They also create and distribute a class directory so you can communicate with other class families. To volunteer to be a Class Parent, please email our VP of Parent Engagement.
When Can I Come into the School?
**Parent Engagement hours: (By Appointment Only) Every Tuesday afternoon (2:40pm-3:20pm) teachers are available to meet with you. Please request an appointment in advance by sending in a note or emailing them your request. You can also request an appointment by calling contact the Parent Coordinator (718-965-0390 x4105)
**Bagel Bits: Every month or two, parents are invited into the gym for bagels and coffee from 8 – 8:30 (supervision is provided for children in the courtyard), and then go up to spend the first period of the morning in their child’s classroom.
