Mission
 
P.S.5 will achieve its vision by:
  • focusing on student performance and progress.

  • widening partnerships between school staff, students, home and members of the broader community.
  • having high expectations that hold our school community accountable.
 
Instructional Focus - Formative Assessment
 
We will deepen the use of frequent formative assessments of student progress to afford every student multiple opportunities for improvement.

Writing: Actionable Feedback in writing.
Math: Focus on fluency and deepening conceptual understanding.
