Dear Friends of the Brooklyn City Schools-
It’s HURRICANE SEASON!
As the 2019-2020 has successfully kicked off, a continued sense of excitement and anticipation is prompting everyone in the Brooklyn City Schools to prepare for another year of learning and achievement from our students.
Students from the District have participated in a number of important and exciting upcoming events. Some of those are below:
On Saturday, August 17th, the Brooklyn City Schools participated in the 2019 Fall Sports and Band Kick-Off event from 12:30 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. at Brooklyn Stadium. Parents and community members were invited to join in the celebration and recognized our fall sport athletes and band members as they prepared for a successful season. The event concluded with a short parade from the stadium to Memorial Park.
To help our students and families achieve a successful transition to a new grade level, the District has scheduled several Open House events at each building. Students will have the opportunity to meet their teachers and bring supplies to the classroom. For a full list of dates by grade level, please visit the District website.
Teachers and classified staff members will be welcomed back to the District on Thursday, August 22, 2019, with our annual Convocation. Students in grades 1st through 12th will start the new school year on Monday, August 26th and will be greeted with warm smiles and an inspiring “Clap-In” event as they enter the school doors. Kindergarten students’ first full day of school will be Friday, August 30, 2019. To help generate excitement for the new school year, the Brooklyn City Schools are once again asking families to visit the District website to download and print “First Day of School Flyers” for your students’ respective building and grade level. On the first day of school, please take a picture of your student holding the flyer, and share the picture on one of the District’s social media accounts, including Facebook and Twitter, and our brand new Instagram account using #HurricaneSeason. The District will then share/retweet your child's photo on our social media accounts to celebrate Hurricane Pride on the first day of school!
Thank you for your continued support of the Brooklyn City Schools.
Dr. Mark Gleichauf
Superintendent of Schools
