Message from the School Leaders

Dear Haverstraw Elementary Community:
Parent Teacher Conferences are around the corner. Tuesday, November 4th, 8:30 am-12:00 pm and 1:00 pm- 3:00 pm during the day and Thursday, November 6, 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm are our conferences dates/times.

This is a fundamental opportunity for you to obtain timely and vital information about your child's performance. We encourage you to make every effort to keep your appointment and use such time wisely. In the event that you cannot make it, you need to schedule a conversation with your child's teachers. 

Below, in this web site please find two links you may use for general information on Parent Teacher conferences from two different sources. 

For your convenience, we have also prepared a list of questions you may want to ask. It is located both within the resources menu and also below in this web site. 

Thank you for your support in the education of your child. 

Benito Herrero, Principal
Jennifer E. Luongo, Assistant Principal
