  • Take the 2017 NYC School Survey
    Take the 2017 NYC School Survey
    Good Evening, your child will be bringing home a green envelope with a school survey for you to complete.  Every year, all parents, teachers, and students in grades 6-12 take the NYC School Survey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school.  

     The 2016-2017 version of the NYC School Survey is aligned to the DOE's Framework for Great Schools(http://schools.nyc.gov/AboutUs/schools/framework/default.htm) and collects important information about a school’s ability to improve student achievement and can support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.  

    For more information about the survey visit:

  • Parent-Teacher Conferences

    Dear Parents and Guardians, 

    Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, March 16, 2017, from 12:55-2:55 PM and 4:30-7:30 PM. These conferences provide information with which teachers and parents can develop mutual strategies to assure greater progress for each student. If necessary, translation services in Chinese, Arabic, and Spanish will be provided in the teacher’s lounge, room 227 (ext. 2270); you can ask the teacher to call to see if a translator is available to come to the room to assist you.

    If you find that you need more time, please make an appointment to see your child’s teacher(s) during one of their non-teaching periods during the school day, or during Family Engagement Time on Wednesday mornings from 7:45-8:35 AM. The suggested meeting time is 3 minutes per parent. For ongoing notifications of your child’s grades, make sure you are registered on Pupil Path. If you are not already registered, please see Ms. Castignani, our Parent Coordinator, in room 220 for your registration form. Additionally, please visit our newly designed website (www.mckinley259.org) for announcements, events, after school activities, and more.

    Please note that on Thursday, March 16, 2017, all students will follow their regular class schedule periods 1 through 4 (dismissal will be at 11:49).

    Below is a chart you can fill in listing your child’s subject teachers and the rooms in which you may meet them for the Parent-Teacher Conferences.

    Very truly yours,

    Janice A. Geary
