Father’s Day Boutique – June 14-16

Dear Parents & Guardians,

It is the time of year to celebrate and show appreciation to the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, friends and important men in our lives. The PTA will hold a Father’s Day Boutique sale as an opportunity for your child to shop Father’s Day presents for that someone special.

The Father’s Day Boutique will be open from Wednesday, June 14th through Friday, June 16th and there will be items moderately priced from $1 – $8 – bracelets, mugs, key chains, plaques, ties, etc. Please send your child to school with spending money placed in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and class labeled for Father’s Day Boutique. We will open our boutique throughout the day and call each class down to shop.

All funds raised will go toward student events and/or instructional supplies for the school. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Executive Board or stop in at any time.

Limited Outdoor Activities Due to Air Quality Alert

Greetings PS 101 Families:

Wildfire smoke from Canada has impacted air quality in NYC and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) has issued an air quality alert. The air quality alert means air pollution concentration in the region will be unhealthy for people with heart or lung disease, children and adults over 65.

The New York City Department of Education recommended that active children and adults, and people with respiratory problems, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors. Our school remains open, but we will limit outdoor activities per the health advisories. Air purifiers are on in the rooms, and we have limited the fresh air intake coming from outside. Arrival and dismissal times remain the same today.

This also means that our planned Dual Language Department Field Day will be rescheduled to Monday, June 12th. Schools are closed for students tomorrow and Friday as non-attendance days, and we look forward to students returning to school on Monday and hope to resume outdoor activities next week.
