Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

On behalf of the administration and staff of I.S 123, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2012-2013 school year!

We hope that everyone has had a pleasant and restful summer vacation. Our dedicated staff at James M. Kieran is ready to get the year off to a great start. Our mission is to engage students in activities that will motivate and prepare them to meet the standards of excellence in all core disciplines.

Our wikispace has information on the resources, rules and procedures of our school. You will also find information about academic requirements, student activities and responsibilities. We hope you make the most out of this academic handbook and your planner, as it can be a useful tool, and one that supports your success here at IS 123!

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the school and we will be glad to help you. Together at James M. Kieran we can learn, grow and succeed together!

Sincerely yours,
Tyra L. Williams
