Our Lady Queen of Martyrs School

71 Arden Street, New York, NY 10040

Education carries many costs – technology upgrades, resource materials, personnel, building maintenance, utilities – all with increasing price tags.  Tuition is significantly lower than the actual cost to educate each child due to the commitment of the Archdiocese and His Eminence Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan to Catholic education.   Teachers, administrators and staff work together to ensure that our schools are Christ-centered, academically excellent, and welcoming communities, preparing students to be life-long learners and leaders energized by fidelity to Christ, the Church, and one another. 

Tuition (K-8)
The annual tuition for 2020-2021 is $5,150.00. The Archdiocesan Family Grant is $ 675.00 per eligible child. 

Please refer to the table below to identify your family’s annual tuition obligation.

SuccessMaker 
Learning Platform
Grades K-8

During this week teachers will be introducing students to the SuccessMaker Program that began last year.
The program covers material for students to work on at their own pace. The program logs in time spent and scores the child on their work.
What parents must realize with the program if the child just turn it on and does a few problems and then walks away the program will shut down and not register a score.
During Christmas Recess students will be required to do one hour per week in Mathematics and  one hour in Reading.
Therefore 
2 hours -- Mathematics
2 hours - Reading

The login is https://adny1507164.smhost.net
students will receive their login and passwords this week.
Students in Grades 3, 4 and 5 have already received their logins and passwords and Mr. Woods has seen that some have already been working.

As was the case in the summer Mr. Montas will be available on Monday December 23rd  and Monday December 30th
to assist students/parents who are having difficulty.

Upon return on January 6th the marks registered in SuccessMaker will be uploaded to the Educate SIS system for the 2nd quarter.

This practice work will assist your child in raising their
 NWEA MAP scores which will be administered the week of January 13th.



Monday December 16, 2019
