Fire Safety Workshop – September 27th at 8:45am

Fire Safety Workshop

September 2018

Dear Parents,

We have been working with our New York Fire Department to help our youngsters to understand the importance of fire safety precautions within our building.  Veteran fire fighters will be visiting PS 101 during the month of January to speak with every class of students to promote fire safety.

The learning process does not end here, we want you to become part of this partnership as well.  We feel the need to help educate parents about their responsibilities and duties to govern their children properly with mandatory fire safety restrictions in the home.

We will be having an important parent workshop hosted by The FDNY to inform you about how you can make a difference in a serious situation.  We strongly urge you to attend.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Your child will only be photographed upon returning the pre-pay envelope provided. It is preferred that the children wear a solid colored shirt, and to be presentable for pictures. Class photos will be also be taken.

Keep in mind that re-take day is scheduled for Tuesday, November 20th, 2018. That will be the LAST chance to grab a fall photo of your child!

Class Messenger – Parent Memo

Class Messenger – Parent Letter 2018

September 17, 2018

Dear PS 101 Families:

Thank you for your high interest in using Class Messenger, which allows you to receive messages and respond to your child’s teacher.

Please be reminded that teachers are unavailable to use Class Messenger contact or replies while teaching and/or at meetings. Teachers will do their best to respond to questions within 24-48 hours, but you should not expect them to respond immediately.

If there is a situation or concern that you need to speak with your child’s teacher about, you may arrange for an appointment through Class Messenger or by calling the school directly. Additionally, please do not contact teachers in the evening hours as they are home with their family being mommies and daddies, just like you.

In advance, I appreciate your understanding and partnership to ensure that texting systems are used as part of enhancing the home-school connection.
