Donations for Families Affected by the Fire

Donations – Parent Letter

January 17, 2020

Dear PS 101 Families:

With the recent sad news of the fire across the street from our school and learning five of our 101 families reside there, many of you have expressed high interest and genuine concern for helping those in need in making monetary donations. The families are currently displaced and staying at relatives or elsewhere right now until the building is cleared secure by the Building’s Department- structurally. Once they are allowed back to their apartments, they can truly assess what damage has been made to their homes and belongings.

If you wish to make a monetary donation at this time, kindly submit your contribution in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and class. Any monies collected will be split evenly to the five affected families and we will purchase a gift card to Kohl’s or a local store so the family can use towards what they need.

Collections will begin effective immediately.

Thank you for the 101 way and for your caring hearts to help the families in need.

Additional School Counselor

Greetings Parents/Guardians,

I am happy to announce we have secured a second School Counselor two days a week, in addition to Ms. Kipriadis, to assist with supporting our students’ concerns, issues, etc. Ms. DeLauro will be joining our staff on Mondays and Thursdays.

What is the role of a  School Counselor?

Think back to a time you may have had a problem with another person or something happened in your life (at home, work, relationship or in school) and it led to you feeling sad, angry or upset because you weren’t sure how to handle it. The purpose of our counselors is to help our students learn skills to deal with issues as they arise so their school work is not effected. Often times, one or two conversations are enough to teach a person how to acknowledge what they are feeling and how to handle a particular type of situation.

At PS 101 while we focus on academics, we also take pride in our ability to help students navigate the waters of life.



Letter from our new School Counselor:

Hello! My name is Teresa DeLauro and I am the new School Counselor at P.S. 101. I will be at P.S. 101 on Mondays and Thursdays. I will meet with mandated, at risk, and any students with concerns in group and/or individual counseling sessions. Often, I will conduct lessons within the classroom on various topics such as social skills, bullying, anxiety, etc. I am excited to collaborate with teachers and staff to be advocates for our students, ensuring they have a successful school year!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working together!


Lockdown…(sheltering in)

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please be advised we went into a Lock-down this morning due to a fire in the apartment building across the street from our school. We entered into a lock-down to ensure everyone in our school remained safe and inside the school building. We kept windows closed as well and ensured the safety of our students during this time.

The FDNY has since put the fire out and contained the situation.

We have since lifted the lock down and are functioning as normal.
