pta meeting -  writing workshop
Wednesday, November 26
at 9 am.

At MS104,  we are paying strong attention to the craft of writing. Across the curriculum, students are being provided opportunities to enhance their ability to express their thoughts and ideas in written form. Writing is a lifelong skill and an area that requires opportunities to practice one's craft and develop one's voice. It is a skill that is essential in today's workforce as well, but there is also the need to help students see the value and the joy of writing.


We understand the importance of including parents in their children's educational life. This month's meeting will provide parents with an interactive session that will expose them to the types of writing that our students are doing. 


Staff members from the content areas will give parents insight in to the kinds of writing that is happening, allow parents a chance to experience this writing for themselves, and discuss strategies to support your children in becoming highly effective writers. 

Come join us and learn and experience how we are developing and inspiring a community of writers here at 104, and develop ways to be part of this process.

report card distribution
First period report cards will be distributed Friday, December 12th.

Each class will visit the library and teachers will have wish lists. More details to follow soon. Parents are encouraged to visit the book fair also. 

An Online Book Fair will also be available December 3 - 23. A link will be provided where parents and students (and relatives!) can order books for home, for gifts or for teacher wish lists and all purchases will benefit the school. More details to come on that as well.

Parent volunteers are needed to help with the book fair! 

Each day of the fair requires multiple volunteers. Please email the PTA by clicking here  if you can help and a Signup Genius link will be sent to you, which will have slot times in 3 hour increments. We need cashiers and book fair assistants each day. Help is also needed for set-up and breakdown. Any and all help is welcome.
