Dear C.S. 55 Family,
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! As we enter a new academic year, it is important for your child to focus on their schoolwork and do their best to meet the high academic standards and expectations. We believe that providing a rigorous educational experience based on the Common Core Learning Standards is necessary for your child to achieve academic success. We also believe that all hcildren learn differently which is why we use a variety of teaching and learning strategies to help your child achieve success.
Based on research, we know that strong parent/family support and participation can have a positive impact and result in an increased level of student achievement. You are invited to particpate and be actively involved by volunteering in the school and joining the parent association. Throughout the year, there will be several opportunities to meet with your child's teachers and attend family events at our school. I encourage all of you to become inovlved.
It is my hope that you will visit our website weekly to improve our communication. I look forward to partnering with you in doing whatever it takes for your child to achieve succes.
Luis E. Torres, Principal
