Dear Parents and Guardians, 


Thank you for supporting P.S. 298 to bridge the home-school connection during these challenging times. Our joint efforts and strong partnerships will lead our children to their greatest successes.  Understanding the difficulty that our families have in juggling remote learning with other equally important priorities, we thank you for continuing to be so supportive of our teachers and our school. 


For remote learning the grading policy has been adapted in order to allow for all students to be given an opportunity to succeed. The grading policy is as follows: 


35 % - Classwork

35 % - Homework

15 % - Quizzes

15 % - Tests 


This marking period unlike others, students will be receiving grades of MT- meeting the standard or N - Needs Improvement. Teachers will use a scale of 56-100% to qualify for meeting the standard “MT” and 0-55% percent to qualify for needs improvement “N”. 


We have always said that we are “Panthers Strong” and you continue to prove that each and every day through your hard work and diligence in making sure your child continues to “level up”.
