The Petrides School

PRINCIPAL’S WEEKLY MESSAGE

The Week of June 14, 2021 

 

 
Dear Petrides Parents,  

 

Congratulations to all the students achieving milestones this year!  It was great to see some many of our students and their families participate in our celebrations earlier this week.   

 

New York City School Survey – please complete the annual School Survey, if you haven’t yet done so.   

 

 

Every year, all parents, teachers, students in grades 6-12 and select school support staff take the NYC School Survey.  The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of their school community think about the learning environment at their school.  The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.

How to take the 2020-21 NYC School Survey · 

 

Visit NYCSchoolSurvey.org 

Families will enter "f" followed by their child's nine-digit Student Identification (OSIS) Number to access the survey.  Note that "f" must be lowercase.
