Week of April 8, 2019
Dear Mott Hall Families,
Congratulations to all our students for their commitment to do well on the ELA State Test. Our scholars spent this year engaged in learning that prepared them to perform well on the test. They worked long hours on the day of the test and gave it their best effort. So proud of their stamina! They all excelled! We are now in the final weeks before the State Math Test.
We want to acknowledge all our scholars who participated in the Saturday ELA and Math Clinics. Their journey began in January and culminated with a celebration on April 6, 2019. They developed skills and gained content knowledge that contributed to their confidence level. We honor them for their great accomplishment.
We want to share that our Chess team is doing very well. They won 1st place and 2nd place in 2 tournaments. We are looking forward to future tournaments with much excitement.
Mott Hall is the recipient of a “2019 Respect for All School” award. We were highlighted for restorative practices, conflict resolution training and educating our students on problem solving in order to establish and maintain a respectful community environment.
Congratulations to our 8th grade students who have received their acceptance letters and offers from high schools. Excitement is in the air as acceptances came from wonderful New York City public schools, private schools, catholic schools and boarding schools.
Congratulations to all our 3rd Marking Period Honor Roll recipients. Their names adorn our board where we proudly honor them every day. Enthusiastically looking forward to more scholar names joining our wall for the last marking period.
We will be offering a parent workshop on mental health that will cover ADHD and managing anxiety. We will provide parental resources. The Parent Workshop will take place on April 17, 2019. Please join us!
Please remember to look at our website for all up to date information about the daily events of the school.
Wishing everyone a great week!
In your gratitude,
Principal De Los Santos-Peña
