Life Skills Reminder- Using a telephone

Greetings Parents/Guardians,

In recent weeks, we have had students come to the office to call home (ex: forgot their lunch) and have observed they do not know how to use a phone. Obviously we all have cell phones, and this is the reason why children do not use regular phones. Cell phones do not have dial tones and we barely dial a phone number if it’s a saved contact, etc. If ever there were an emergency, and cell phones didn’t work, standard landline phones which are in most office buildings, schools and on the street will still work and your children should know how to use them to call you or the police, etc.

Please teach your children how to use a regular standard phone. Let them hear a dial tone, teach them how to dial a phone number including 1 plus the area code. While it may seem simple to you, to our kids who have never experienced a regular phone, it is an important skill, especially in an emergency situation. Please take the time to teach this skill to your children.

Thank you,

#telephone #call #phone #needtoknow #emergencyready

Dance festival
May 15, 2018

Dear Early Childhood Parents/Guardians:

To celebrate our students and their study of the arts through music and movement, kindly save the date to join our PS 101 FAMILY AT THE 2018 Dance Festival scheduled for Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 9 am.

We are lucky to be hosting our Dance Festival at IS 281 due to the construction area in our yard. IS 281 located at 8787 24th Avenue, will allow us to use their schoolyard for the Dance Festival.

Please be advised, students in kindergarten, first and second grade will perform their dances and share in the festivities. At the conclusion of the showcase, students will immediately return to our school to resume instructional lessons. Students cannot be signed out after their performance by any means and are to complete their educational day as regularly scheduled.
Please be sure your child has a towel to sit on in the yard.

This year’s theme includes a sweet treat of candy songs and melodies.
We hope you can save the date and join in the fun.

Very truly yours,

Gregg Korrol

Absences & Lateness

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Regarding attendance, please be advised that when your child is signed out of school, they are marked absent for the portion of the day they are not present. Attendance is based on being present inside the school. Attendance records are legal documents and time in school must be accounted for properly. So please understand that if you are signing your child out of school for a medical reason or any other purpose, they are marked absent for the portion of the day they are not present inside the school. The same holds true for lateness. School starts at 8:10 am. While we give a 2-3 minute leeway for students to come into the building, if they are late, they are marked late, regardless of reason. Again, attendance and being marked present is about being present inside PS 101.

Thank you.
