  News from Math and Movement  

NYS PTA Strategic Alliance Partner Math and Movement is offering a Summer Math Institute for Educators on August 7-10 in Oswego, NY.

Math & Movement harnesses a child's natural inclination to move and directs it into an enjoyable method of learning and retaining information.

The program uses visually-pleasing floor mats that allow children to practice basic skills while using visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning modalities.

You can read more information about the summer program HERE.

  Letter from the NYS Education Commissioner Elia  

Dear Parents,

Last week, I had the pleasure of giving the keynote address at a graduation ceremony in New York City for some extraordinary students, ages 18 to 21, who earned the New York State High School Equivalency Diploma by passing the Test Assessing Secondary Completion, or TASC. The TASC is no easy exam: it is an eight-hour assessment that covers five subject areas (Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies) and is aligned to rigorous college and career standards. The gradation was one of the best that I've experienced in my more than 40 years in education. I am so grateful to have been a part of it.
