PRINCIPAL'S WEEKLY

  

 

Principal’s Message Week of January 8, 2018

Dear Mott Hall Community,

We hope you had a great holiday!  Our warm wishes for a great new year filled with wonderful surprises!

We are happy to “kick off” our Saturday Clinics.  We were scheduled to begin on January 6, 2018.  Due to low temperatures however, we will begin on January 13, 2018.  This is an opportunity for students to prepare for the upcoming State ELA and Math tests.  Students will be able to expand their knowledge, and learn test taking skills that they can take with them throughout their educational career.  There is still time to register.

On Monday, January 8, 2018, we will begin our Winter Drive and collect coats, gloves, scarfs, sweaters and socks to donate to New York Families.  Please support our drive and help us keep New York warm!

Congratulations to our Mott Hall Spelling Bee Winners: Deosis Martinez (6th Grade), Khyara Perez (7th Grade) and Soleil Roberts (8th Grade).  They will represent our school at the Citywide Spelling Bee on Tuesday, January 9th.  Good luck! We are proud of you!

Our monthly SLT meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 10th at 3:30.

Progress Reports will be distributed to students on Friday, January 12th.

Have a great weekend!

In collaboration,

Ms. De Los Santos-Peña

CURRICULUM

The goal of the Mott Hall School’s curriculum is the development of skilled students who are self-directed critical thinkers.

 

Young Scholars

Mott Hall students are considered young scholars. They learn subject matter through a constructivist and project-based approach using powerful learning techniques such as Socratic dialogues, literature circles, writing for student publications, digital film making and web site creation.

The curriculum is further enriched by its alignment to the Common Core NationalStandards. Students are offered accelerated special courses and seminars as well as special enrichment electives such as chess, robotics and stock market studies which engage them in real world investigations tied directly to student needs and interests.

TECHNOLOGY

Mott Hall has a technology rich environment. In an effort to confront the digital divide, we use the PupilPath online system to give       parents and students instant access to grades, attendance, and progress reports.
