Dear Families, Welcome to the KIPP STAR Elementary team and family! We are so excited to begin our 2
nd
year, andas a team of families, students and staff, we are continuing to build the foundation for early educationand character together. We commit to helping our children develop the character, academic skills andhabits necessary to succeed in middle school, high school, college and the world beyond. We believethat by working together, we can provide opportunities to enable our children to grow up to havehappy, healthy and successful lives. Whether our KIPPsters are in the classrooms reading

, at the zoo discovering theneeds of animals to live and survive, performing at our winter show or practicing their school values,they truly embody what it is to be a KIPPster. We practice the KIPP Philosophy:
Be nice and workhard 
. Due to the tremendous grit, love, hope, communication and support of their teachers and families, we know that our KIPPsters will do amazing things. We are excited about their infinite possibilities, andbeginning the first KIPP elementary school in Washington Heights is one step towards achieving thosepossibilities. These are truly exciting times, and we are happy that you are part of it! We recognize that these efforts take tremendous discipline and dedication, which can only be done withthe joint efforts of families, staff and our students. Since we value open communication and access to
information, we have prepared a handbook regarding the school’s structure, attendance, schedule,
culture and academics along with other pieces of information that we think you will findhelpful. Hopefully, this handbook will serve as a useful resource to answer any questions that you may have. Please keep it handy so that you may refer to it when necessary. We look forward to an exciting and positive year! Once again, welcome to another year at KIPP STAElementary, which is filled with the promise of greatness, enthusiasm, love and dedication. Please feelfree to contact us if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Thank you for your faith and support, Anokhi SaraiyaPrincipal(917)-450-8853
