• New Parent Orientation Presentations 2013.2014 

    On behalf of the Staff and Administrative Team, I would like to cordially welcome all our new parents and guardians to P.S. duPont Middle School.  As students transition between schools during their educational journeys, parents and students naturally want to know about their new school before arriving to school on the first day.  For this reason, P.S. duPont conducts New Parent Orientation Presentations periodically throughout the summer, as well as "empty building tours" typically in mid-August.  The Orientation Presentations are an opportunity to get an overview of the schedule, programming specifics, and some practices and protocols that are unique to P.S.  The "empty building tours" are an opportunity for parents and students to come and simply walk through the building to become familiar with its layout.  Teachers and staff are not on-site during the "empty building tours"; however, parents will be able to meet teachers during our annual Open House event in mid-September.
    All Parent Orientation Presentations and "Empty Building Tours" dates and times can be found on the school calendar (last channel on the far right of the P.S. duPont homepage).  The link below is a copy of the PowerPoint presentation guiding discussion during the Parent Orientation sessions.  Ample time is also devoted to covering parent questions not covered during the presentation. 
    It is my sincere hope that all new parents and guardians are able to attend one of our orientation sessions.  I look forward to meeting you and working with you and your child(ren) throughout the 2013.2014 school year.
