Class of 2018

    Welcome Class of 2021
    Dear I.S. 281 Families,
    It is hard to believe that we have embarked upon our third year together.  We have so many things to look forward to during the 2018-2019 school year.  Soon enough, you will be taking your Senior Class photos, applying to high school and celebrating eighth grade during a variety of special theme days and events we have planned for you.  It will truly be a year to remember!
    While we are all very excited, we must always keep in mind that as eighth graders you are the leaders of our school community.  Your actions inside this building and beyond should reflect the core values we have instilled with the support of our I.S. 281 families.  You must continue to work hard inside the classroom and beyond to ensure that your educational career leads you down the path of future success.
    Most importantly, I ask that you continue to be the kind and respectful group that you have been for the last two school years.  Continue to lift each other's spirits by lending a helpful hand or being a great listener for a friend in need.  Our actions speak volumes, and I am confident that the 2018-2019 school year will be our best yet!  
    Please be reminded that my door is always open.  Parents, if you need to contact me, I may be reached at (718) 996-6706 Extension 3241.  Mrs. Lanigan, our eighth grade Dean can be reached at Extension 3242.
    Kevin Adelson, 6th Grade Assistant Principal
