Principal's Message

  Dear PS 14 Friends and Families,

          What a wonderful first month of school! Thank you for your help in student arrival between 8:00  and 8:05 am, and for following the procedures at dismissal. You have been wonderful about helping us keep our children safe. Also, for safety reasons, please do not bring dogs and puppies with you during arrival and dismissal. Although we love our four-footed friends, if one family brings a dog, and then another family brings their dog, then the next thing you know we have many dogs barking and scaring our littlest students. We want all of our students to feel safe at all times, including arrivals and dismissal. Therefore, we appreciate that we all leave our puppies at home. Thank you!

 New this year we are using a math curriculum called Envisions, which is organized by topic rather than by units. We are also implementing the Amplify science curriculum for the second year.  Please help your children when they are completing homework by providing quiet spaces to work, and a comfortable table or desk. Most importantly: encourage your children not to give up when work gets challenging.  

 Our School Leadership Team has been hard at work analyzing our school data and writing our goals for the year. In summary, these goals are:

1.       To improve ELA state exam scores 5 points

2.       To improve math state exam scores 5 points

3.       To decrease the number of “long term absences”, or students who miss more than 18 days a year.   

 Please note that Student Led Parent /Teacher conferences will take place on November 14th from 12:30 – 2:30 pm and from 4:30 – 7:30 pm.

 As always, please let me know if you have any questions or ideas! We look forward to partnering with you for a wonderful year ahead!

CEP School-wide Goals

  1. Math Goal:
    By June 2018, instruction in math will be aligned to the CCLS to ensure that rigorous tasks allow students to perform at or above grade level using critical thinking promoted by questioning and discussion in order to improve proficiency in the Math State Exam by 7 points in grades 3, 4, and 5 for All Students, inclusive of all sub-group populations, but with a 10 point increase for our ELL students and Students with Disabiliti
  2. ELA Goal
    By June 2018, we will improve proficiency in the ELA State Exam by 7 points in grades 3, 4, and 5 for All Students, inclusive of the sub-group populations, but with a 10 point increase for our ELL students and Students with Disabilities. ​​Student achievement in ELA will improve from 24% to 31% through the integration of more effective independent reading, writing, and guided reading opportunities set forth in the teacher’s College Reading and Writing curriculum as well as the collaborative, whole school tracking of independent reading levels.​
  3. Teacher Development/ Danielson Goal
    By June 2018, all teachers will be provided on-going, job-embedded professional development on higher-level thinking and classroom differentiation practices in order to achieve an MOTP rating of either effective or highly effective measured by the specific components of the Danielson’s Framework for Teaching: 3C, Engagement as well as continuing to support 3B, Questioning And Discussion.
  4. Leadership Goal:
    By June 2018, teachers, parents and students will understand and be able to explain shared understanding of the role that leadership development plays in discipline and behavior so that our discipline issues and OORS reports decrease by 10 percent.
  5. Family Engagement Goal:
    By June 2018, all teachers, students, and families will engage in workshops and assemblies to deepen our work around building a positive culture, including a culture of trust, in our school, as evidenced by improvement in the Learning Environment Survey scores for Family Engagement from 82% positive to 90% positive overall​.
