Van Duyn, our 2017 mantra is “Getting Back to Greatness NOW
(No Opportunity Wasted)”. Our goal is to become a New York State School in “Good Standing”
. To do this, your child, along with all
other 3-5 grade students in New York must take and pass
the New York State Assessment in English Language Arts and Mathematics (a passing score is 3 or above).
Beginning on February 9th
, 2017 we will begin FREE
tutoring sessions at Van Duyn Elementary School for all students in grades 2-5.
Students will receive tutoring in Math, Writing and Language Arts. These tutoring sessions will be held on Wednesdays, Thursdays and one Saturday. There will be no transportation provided by the Syracuse City School District or Van Duyn. Students will either walk home or have parents pick them up at 5:30pm. Snacks will be provided prior to tutoring. A Parent Academy
will be held on Saturday, March 11th, 2017
to provide parents with information to understand the NYS Assessments and how to best support their child with testing. Students must have a signed permission slip and information regarding their transportation home to participate in this FREE tutoring program. Your child will be recieving a application. Please sign and return it no later than February 6th, 2017
. We are looking forward to Getting Back to Greatness
at Van Duyn!
Please review the schedule below for exact times and dates that tutoring will be held.
