WELCOME  TO OUR MATRICULATING 264 NEW THIRD GRADERS, & WELCOME BACK TO OUR 271 FOURTH GRADERS, & 248 FIFTH GRADERS, GIVING US 783 TOTAL STUDENTS!!

 

We ask for your excellent support during the beginning of the 2017-18  school year, as you were so very generous at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year.  Your generous donation of classroom materials and supplies helped make the school year start smoothly. Please continue for the 2017-18 school year. a list of requested items will be on the main counter in August.  We achieved a 93.3% attendance rate through June 20, 2017, due in large part to your diligence in sending your children to school every day. The number of suspended students dropped to 37, down from 66 the previous year. Your parent and student survey participation for 2015-16 was our best ever, and helped us win the Peer Leadership Award!! Thank you for completing the 2017 Parent Survey!

 

Now we have the challenge of sustaining a school year for 2017-18 that is stronger than 2016-17. STUDENTS WILL BE HAVING BREAKFAST AT 8:05 A.M. THIS YEAR.  They will enter at 8:05 a.m. for breakfast and go to the following areas:

 

Grade 3: Cafeteria

Grade 4: Gymnasium

Grade 5: Multi-Purpose Room

 

The teachers will meet the students everyday in the Cafeteria (3rd grade) or in the Multi-Purpose Room (5th grade). The fourth grade students will be brought to the teachers' classrooms everyday.

 

The dismissal will be the same as last year, with the Third Graders leaving from the Wyoming Exit West, and the Fourth/Fifth Graders leaving from the driveway exits. 

 

Our Winter Concert will be held on Thursday, December 7th at 10:00 a.m. Our young musicians, led by Mr. Cani & Mr. Stewart, will provide a rousing performance that will inspire all of us. Our next Benchmark Exams start in early November. Our students scored at or above the Network & School District averages on Benchmark I, II, and III in math & reading.  Students did well (42% math, 43% Reading)  on Benchmark III, and those results will help us better prepare for the 2018 PSSA exams which occur on April 9 -13, 2018  for English Language Arts (Grades 3-4-5), and April 16- 20th for mathematics (grades 3-4-5). Science PSSA is from April 23rd to 27th  for grade four only.  Please encourage all the students to read at least 20 minutes every night so they can "Read to Lead and Succeed."

 

Congratulations to our Reading Olympics Team, led by Ms. Erickson, with able assistance from Ms. Dawson & Mr. Zucker! The Reading Olympics team won two first place awards!!! Plus, congratulations to our Chess Club participants!. We had one team in first place and another in second place! They had a strong showing! The wonderful team was led by Ms. Wilkerson, Chess Club Sponsor. Our Art Club and Guitar Club will be in session after school. Please see Ms. Coff and Ms. Bailey for more details.Reading and Math Tutoring (FLASH Program PSSA Prep classes) will also happening after school. The RFL Honors Club will meet on Wednesdays in the Philadelphia Free Library Wyoming Branch at 3:15 p.m.  Please ensure your child joins an after-school activity.

 

Also, it is important to hear your voice. Please contact Ms. Gerena , our SISL, to join our School Advisory Council (SAC). Our next SAC /Parent meeting will be on Tuesday, August 22nd at 9:00 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. We will discuss our new school initiatives, including the 2018 Parent Survey. Your attendance is very important to your child's success in school!

 

Our student  attendance rate from 2016-17 was 93.3%. We must reach 95.6% to be at the best level for student success. If we can reach 97% on any given day, we will distribute super-duper pencils. If a class reaches the 97% mark for the week, they will receive a pretzel party. Students can only miss eight days of school to reach the 95.6% attendance goal. Let's all come to school, every day, on-time and in uniform! WE WILL HONOR THE CLASSES IN EACH GRADE THAT HAVE THE MOST DAYS OF PERFECT ATTENDANCE EACH MONTH WITH A PIZZA OR WATER ICE PARTY> COME TO SCHOOL & BE COOL!!

 

Our website is full of  information you might need about Feltonville Intermediate, including the School Uniform Policy, Student Code of Conduct, Attendance Policy, and required school district forms. Our SISL, Ms. Gerena, is here to help you with the above matters.

 

Please rememberthere is no  parking in the bus zone in front of our school. This area is for school buses, daycare buses and vans, and the SEPTA bus only. ALSO, PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILDREN CROSS THE STREET IN THE CROSSWALKS AT B & WYOMING FOR THEIR SAFETY. The Philadelphia Police Department has issued tickets for those vehicles parked in front during admissions and dismissal time, and will issue tickets to operators of cars double parked who allow their children to cross in the street away from the Crosswalk. 

 

Also, we encourage you to schedule any medical, dental, vision, etc. appointments after or before  school hours so that your students are in school all day, everyday, in uniform and ready to learn. If there is an unavoidable appointment necessary, the person picking up the student must have a current and valid ID, and be on the emergency contact form. Everyone must submit the new emergency contact form. If you have not yet done so, please ensure the form is submitted by Monday, September 12th.

 

Our Faculty and Staff are ready to work with you and your child. We are all working hard on the delivery of our new curriculum engine scope and sequence, preparing for assessments, and remaining focused on our district outcomes of creating self directed learners, accountable citizens and effective communicators. Your assistance in our work is always appreciated. 

 

For the first marking period, report cards will be distributed starting on Monday November 20th. The Parent Conferences are in the afternoon on November  20th, 21st, and 22nd from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. We will have an evening conference on Monday November 20th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. 

 

I am excited and honored to be your Principal and I am committed to helping your children succeed. I am available to help with any questions or concerns about your child's education. We had a successful "Walk for Education" and program on September 24, 2016. At the January 7, 2017 Community meeting, we were awarded $500.00 for school supplies! Thank you to all who participated! At the January 31, 2017 School Progress Report Summit, we received the Peer Leader Award for School Climate, Attendance, and Parent Participation from Dr. Hite, our Superintendent, and Ms. Wilkerson, SRC Chair. Our Reading Olympics team won two first place awards! We also were recognized at the School Safety Summit in May 2017 for Ms. Weaver's Classroom Dojo initiative! Congratulations to all on these wonderful achievements!

 

Remember to have your children Read to Lead and Succeed for at least 20 minutes every night.  Research shows that if you read while they are reading, their fluency and ability to focus will increase by more than one grade level per year!

 

Sincerely yours,

Dr. D. J. Anticoli,

Principal
