PTA Listening Session on remote learning time at home

Dear PS56 Community,

Let’s discuss the challenges on days when our kids won’t be at school this Fall!

Join the PTA for a virtual listening session this Wednesday, August 12 at 6pm.

We want to help our community work together to meet the challenges that come with not having our students at school with their classroom teachers every weekday. This will be difficult for all of us and in different ways, but we want to help each other in ways that are equitable and inclusive of all of the students and families at PS56.

This meeting is designed to hear everyone’s needs regarding remote learning and days at home this fall. It will also allow us to begin to brainstorm equitable and inclusive ways we can help each other. Depending on the number of participants, we may split into small group breakout rooms to make discussion easier.

Please join the meeting by whatever connection you can–phone only is absolutely okay.

We will be on zoom:
