++++

 

East Side Elementary School, PS 267 is a community of learners where wonderers come to learn, where observation and imagination are celebrated and where the question “why” is welcomed and encouraged. It is academically rigorous, with a strong foundation in math and literacy and an emphasis on science, social studies and the arts.

 

The three driving principles in our approach to teaching and learning are to ensure that rigor, purpose, and engagement are the basis for all planning and instruction. To support these principles, students need to make a connection between what they are learning and real life. They need an opportunity to delve deeply into units of study about the world around them in authentic and meaningful ways.

 

Our goal is to ensure that the wonder and excitement that students bring with them not only lasts, but also deepens as they journey through elementary school and into middle school.

School Supplies Update

This year all school supplies have been purchased for each child using school funds.

Please read through the contents when your child returns from school as the PTA, your child’s teacher, and DOE information will be in that folder.
