Principal's Message:

May 2022              Blossoming into Purpose 

Principal’s Message 

Dear RHS Families, 

It’s May and I am thrilled that we still have two months to create memories that will carry us and our children into the years ahead.  During this month, we are celebrating Eid al-Fitr, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and our teachers!  On the 3rd Wednesday in May, we will host our first Randolph Holder Day!  

While we’ve completed the NYS ELA and Math Tests, our students in grade four are scheduled to take the NYS Science Test, and our English Language Learners are scheduled to take the NYSESLAT Test.  As these dates draw near, please maintain communication with your child’s teacher to be informed about strategies you may apply at home.  We are confident in the teaching and student preparation for each of these exams and look forward to them doing their absolute best.  

May is LEADERSHIP Month!  We have scheduled many opportunities for students to participate in activities that empower, as well as remind them that, ‘they are each in their driver’s seat.  Their destination is SUCCESS and they will use their STRATEGIES as their GPS, to help them get there.”  We believe that our students have the power to create the change they envision for themselves and their community, and are excited to create these opportunities for them.

While there is much excitement in the end of year festivities, safety remains our top priority alongside ensuring high quality teaching and learning experiences.  Students must be in school every day.  It is important that students continue to get adequate rest, so that they are on time and ready to learn throughout the day.  Please continue to remind students of expectations regarding their behavior and responsibilities as a learner in the RHS school community.  

Remember, this month we are Blossoming into Purpose, so let’s continue to Collaborate and Communicate on the journey towards improved outcomes for all…

Champion On, 

Phoebe Grant-Robinson

Mayo 2022         Floreciendo en Propósito

Mensaje del director 

Estimadas familias de RHS,

Es mayo y estoy encantado de que todavía tengamos dos meses para crear recuerdos que nos llevarán a nosotros y a nuestros hijos a los años venideros. ¡Durante este mes, estamos celebrando Eid al-Fitr, el Cinco de Mayo, el Día de la Madre, el Mes de la Herencia de los Asiáticos Americanos y las Islas del Pacífico y a nuestros maestros! ¡El tercer miércoles de mayo, celebraremos nuestro primer Día del Titular de Randolph!

Si bien hemos completado las pruebas de ELA y matemáticas del estado de Nueva York, nuestros estudiantes de cuarto grado están programados para tomar el examen de ciencias del estado de Nueva York, y nuestros estudiantes del idioma inglés están programados para tomar el examen NYSESLAT. A medida que se acercan estas fechas, mantenga comunicación con el maestro de su hijo para estar informado sobre las estrategias que puede aplicar en casa. Confiamos en la enseñanza y la preparación de los estudiantes para cada uno de estos exámenes y esperamos que hagan lo mejor posible.

¡Mayo es el Mes del LIDERAZGO! Hemos programado muchas oportunidades para que los estudiantes participen en actividades que los empoderen, así como recordarles que "cada uno está en el asiento del conductor". Su destino es el ÉXITO y usarán sus ESTRATEGIAS como su GPS, para ayudarlos a llegar allí”. Creemos que nuestros estudiantes tienen el poder de crear el cambio que imaginan para ellos y su comunidad, y estamos emocionados de crear estas oportunidades para ellos.

Si bien hay mucho entusiasmo en las festividades de fin de año, la seguridad sigue siendo nuestra principal prioridad junto con garantizar experiencias de enseñanza y aprendizaje de alta calidad. Los estudiantes deben estar en la escuela todos los días. Es importante que los estudiantes continúen descansando lo suficiente, para que lleguen a tiempo y listos para aprender durante todo el día. Continúe recordando a los estudiantes las expectativas con respecto a su comportamiento y responsabilidades como estudiante en la comunidad escolar de RHS.

Recuerde, este mes estamos Floreciendo en Propósito, así que sigamos Colaborando y Comunicándonos en el viaje hacia mejores resultados para todos...

Campeón en,

Phoebe Grant-Robinson

Social Emotional Balance - Mood Meter

What is the Mood Meter?

The Mood Meter is a tool used to recognize and understand our own and other peoples' emotions. It's divided into four color quadrants - red, blue, green, and yellow - each representing a different set of feelings. Feelings are grouped together on the mood meter based on their pleasantness and energy level.

Some classroom teachers utilize the MOOD meter both in school and through remote learning, to gauge their students readiness.  We believe that especially during these UNIQUE times, it is critical to address the Social Emotional Balance or all P.S. 253Q community members.  We encourage you to utilize the MOOD Meter provided to the right with its corresponding descriptions below:

  

  • Red feelings: High in energy and more unpleasant (e.g., angry, scared, and anxious)
  • Blue feelings: Low in energy and more unpleasant (e.g., sad, disappointed, and lonely)
  • Green feelings: Low in energy and more pleasant (e.g., calm, tranquil, and relaxed) 
  • Yellow feelings: High in energy and  more pleasant (e.g., happy, excited, and curious)
