Research-based studies show how students with School Spirit perform better academically and are more engaged in social and civic matters are happier in general than those with without school pride and interest.
At PS 101, we need to lead by example and show our students the way. We want to strive to demonstrate a sense of community and family that unite together to celebrate, show support as a form of expression.
We will hold School Spirit Events throughout the school year and need your support and your child’s full participation with each special day. Please make every effort to adhere to the color/theme for your child to share in the fun with their class. Classes with full participation with any School Spirit event will be awarded a class Viking token for their achievement.
Our Little Lighthouse Team of upper grade representatives have devised this calendar in advance for your planning and preparation: (Please be advised this is tentative and subject to change).
Thank you in advance for your PS 101 School Spirit.
Ms. Bova and Ms. Nessas and Your Little Lighthouse Team
