Dear Parents,

IS 220 Broadway Jr. Students are working very hard, rehearsing and preparing the set for their newest show “Hairspray”. In order to have a successful performance they need our help with creating costumes for them. I am looking for parent volunteers that know or would like to learn to how sew. The parent sewing group will be meeting Wednesday mornings from 9 am to 11 am starting on February 4th in room 211. If Wednesday afternoon is more convenient for you I could make arrangements for an additional class.  For the costumes we will be using skirt and dress patterns as well as sewing machines. First we will learn how to read and copy patterns on to the fabric as well as get familiar with the sewing machine. Please let me know if you are interested in participating in the sewing club/class by emailing or calling Ms. Jasinski at / 718-633-8200 Ex. 2115. Let’s get together so our students can have another successful performance.

Learning Environment Surveys

The New York City Department of Education will give the ninth annual Learning Environment Survey to every parent, teacher, and 6-12th grade student citywide. This is an exciting opportunity for the people who know their schools best to tell us what they think.
The voices of parents, students, and teachers count in two important ways. Survey results are reported to school communities and the public through Survey Reports. Survey results also count for 10% of schools’ yearly Progress Report grades. To find out more information about last year’s Learning Environment Survey please look at IS 220 page @

Please be on a lookout for GREEN Survey Envelope that will be distributed to students on February 23. All surveys dropped off in room 211 for parent Coordinator to mail will receive a thank you gift.


Reminder: “Parent Rights and Responsibilities” “Parent Bill of Rights” “School Parent Compact” as well as “Parent Involvement Policy” are available in the Parent Coordinator’s office Room 211
