Welcome to Ms.Ortiz’s class

Dear Parents and Guardians:

 Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at P.S.896, School of Creativity and Innovation. My name is Ms. Ortiz. I am very excited to be your child’s second and third grade teacher this year. I look forward to having a great productive year with your child. I wanted to share with you some general  information about our classroom that will be useful throughout our year together.

  • Arrival and Dismissal:  School begins at 8:10 a.m and dismissal is at 2:30 p.m. Our class’s entrance and exit will be at the main entrance door. 
  • Labeling Student BelongingsPlease label your child’s belongings with their first and last name (jackets, sweaters, backpack, lunch box, etc). Unclaimed items will be placed in the school’s lost and found container in the main office at the end of each week.
  • Toys: Please do not allow your child to bring toys from home to school. We want to avoid the risk of personal items being misplaced or broken. 
  • Birthdays – If you would like to send a treat in for your child’s birthday please let us know a week in advance. As per our school policy, we ask that the snacks are healthy as at SCI we stress the importance of a healthy mind and body! If your child does have an allergy please inform the school nurse, and myself.

I am looking forward to working together to ensure each student’s success this year. Please contact me anytime you have questions or concerns about your child.  The easiest way for you to reach me is by classDOJO
