       I.S. 303 and the 60th precinct partnered up this Thanksgiving to spread the joy of this very special holiday. We visited families in our community as well as our partners at Elder Share and distributed turkeys and non-perishable food items that our I.S 303 families donated.
       On behalf of our I.S. 303 school family, we'd like to thank Officer Perrini and Officer Raasch for their help in assisting with the distribution of the turkeys and food donations to our families and friends. This Thanksgiving was special because we shared with so many families, the blessings that many of us enjoy.

Letter From Our Principal, Carmen N. Amador

       It’s great to welcome everyone to another engaging, invigorating and stimulating school year at IS 303. Our school offers students a wealth of opportunities geared towards helping them find themselves as they navigate the path they are in – the path of self-discovery. Exploring who we are and what we are good at is the key to academic success and to success in life as well. Our goal is to connect with each and every child, model our high expectations and help parents and children see what a well-connected, goal oriented school community has to offer.

 

       We invite all incoming students to stop by our offices and share a little about who they are. The rest leave to us! We look forward to serving our students and connecting with families. We also look forward to continuing our partnerships with institutions of higher education and our community. We firmly believe that strong schools will yield strong communities and we aim to prepare our students to be active members and contributors to their communities.
