Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to the Meyer Levin
I.S. 285 Falcon Academy.
Each school year, the Meyer
Levin family embraces the challenge of bringing a diverse group of students–
their strengths, talents, weaknesses, curiosities, and fears together
toward a common understanding about community and shared responsibilities
that will ultimately lead to academic success. There is a continual
need for us to engage in dialogue about the issues that are important
to our immediate community and our extended community.
Whether you are returning to Meyer Levin or new to the school, reading the Parent-Student
Handbook together is a critical first step in this dialogue. Please read through the enclosed Student Handbook. Set aside some time to discuss the values of the school and the expectations and consequences outlined within the Handbook. Once having done so, please sign the following agreement and retain in your handbook. I know that your experience with the Falcon Academy will be a rewarding one.
Mrs. D. Holder
My child and I (we) have read
the Falcon Academy Student Handbook and have discussed the material
therein. We support the values and understand the expectations and consequences
as outlined in the Handbook.
