Dear Parents and Guardians,

My first year as Principal has been very exciting.

This has been both a productive and successful year.  Upon my arrival at IS 27, the need for technology upgrades was quite evident during the summer months.  After walking the building to personally identify what the school needed most, I began the process of upgrading technology. I ordered Smart Boards for most classrooms, and laptops/I-pads have been issued to most teachers.  Both of our computer labs were updated.  You may notice most classroom blackboards have been upgraded to white boards, making our classrooms both dust-free and modern looking.

Moving on to the facility, I am happy to announce that our bathrooms have been upgraded, and new air conditioners were installed in some classrooms, the library, main office, and most importantly in our school’s cafeteria.  This has made lunch much more enjoyable for the students during these warmer days.

Academically, Go Math, has been added to the curriculum, and has helped the students to enjoy Math and learn more than ever before. Next year we will be Launching a new literacy program, My Perspective, which we will talk more about as we return to school.

We instituted After-school Programs with a focus on recreational activity, Lego Robotics and Specialized High School test prep.  Saturday Academy was dedicated for student tutoring as indicated by the results of the ELA and Math exams.  Our English Language Learners were also invited to the Saturday Academy and families were invited to learn alongside the children.

What I am most proud of however, is the collaboration among the school leadership, teachers and parents.  There was an obvious need to improve the tone of the building.  The IS 27 family is a strong one, and after this year, I truly believe we have grown stronger, and will attract more and more families back home to their zoned school.  My goal is to ensure your children are safe, they are nurtured, challenged, and enjoy coming to school.  Thanks to our combined efforts, we are on our way!

I can’t believe how quickly this year has passed.  I am grateful to call this school my home, and I thank you for your continued support.  I am looking forward to my continued work with you and your children, and I wish you only the best for a restful summer.

Congratulations to our Graduates!

Have a great summer….see you in September!


Very truly yours,

Matthew Barone
