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!
We are committed to maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying and from discrimination based on actual or perceived race, color, citizen-ship/immigration status, religion, creed, national origin, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, or weight.

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.
"The more you read,
The more things you know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you'll go."
CHAIN OF SUCCESS
Committed to Recognizing Hard Work & Excellence
The Chain of Success is a whole-class system that rewards excellent behavior and hard work that is seen from the class as a whole. The class is rewarded a paper link each time they are successful in accomplishing a task as a whole team. Chains can be received for tasks such as lining up quietly, receiving compliments for excellent behavior, for being great role models for the younger students, and so forth.
