STUDENT OF THE MONTH

October - Jimena


Jimena is an energetic fifth grader in Ms. Erin’s class who enjoys roller skating, drawing, and reading mystery books. Ask her to name something she can’t live without and, without hesitation, she’ll tell you “my sister”. (She would get bored if she was by herself!)


Jimena plans to become a teacher in the future, because she wants to help kids develop their reading skills. (She truly is a hard-working individual!) She is proud and excited to be Student of the Month and is looking forward to a great senior year at PS 51!

LATENESS CHART

November 2019

How does being late to school affect one's education? Take a look at the chart to get a better idea of how being late can affect your child's learning over extended periods of time.

Class 451 is striving be on time and has learned the following saying:

To be early is to be on time,

to be on time is to be late, 

and to be late is unacceptable.
