PS 295 WEEKLY BULLETIN
The latest in school and PTA news—including a principal's report and reminders of important dates, events, and more—is compiled here. This is the most complete source for school information. Bulletins are translated into Spanish and Chinese. Bulletins are also posted to this webpage and archived in Principal Pagano's Virtual Office.
GOOGLE CLASSROOM & GMAIL
On Google Classroom, our teachers post assignments, supplementary learning materials, and Zoom meeting links for live instruction. Whenever there is an update, an alert is sent to students via their school email (Gmail) address—which ends with @ps295.org. Over the weekend, students are emailed the schedule for live classes and meetings for the upcoming week. Some teachers will add all links for the week, while others add them the evening before the following day. Please check Google Classroom and your child's Gmail inbox often because they are the most complete sources for classroom information for our students and their families. For more information about Google Classroom or Gmail, please contact your child’s teacher.
Communicate directly with teachers with ClassDojo! Teachers regularly post pictures, reminders, and helpful links to the families in their classes. Families can post comments and questions for their child's teachers. Messaging can be translated into more than 35 languages. For more information about ClassDojo, please contact your child’s teacher.
PARENT ENGAGEMENT PERIOD
Every weekday afternoon, from 2:00–2:20 PM, teachers are available to meet with families virtually, via Zoom meeting. Please contact your child's teacher via email to schedule an appointment. You can also request an appointment by contacting our Parent Coordinator Amanda Bissell via email or by phone at 718-965-0390, ext. 4105.
