Ramadan Mubarak

Greetings PS101 famileis,

For those celebrating Ramadan, Ramadan Mubarak.

Regarding our schoolwide pizza party tomorrow, if your child is fasting and they cannot eat during the school day, please let your child’s teacher know and we will send home their pizza slice with them to enjoy in the evening (if you wish).

Also, at the wish of parents, if you prefer your child not remain in the cafeteria due to their fast, please write a note to your child’s teacher.

Thank you,


PS 101 Schoolwide Pizza Party!

Dear PS 101 Families,

In celebration of our Lighthouse achievement for the Leader in Me, this Friday March 24, we are hosting a schoolwide pizza party for all classes to enjoy!

All classes are being gifted a pizza party following their regular lunch time (meaning they will have lunch as per normal and later in the afternoon have pizza).

There is nothing you need to do UNLESS you don’t want your child having pizza.
If you do not want your child to have pizza, please contact your child’s teacher on Remind or by writing a note.

Pizza Party date: Friday March 24

***Please also remember it is dress like a Rock Star day 🙂

Congratulations to all!


Lighthouse School

Dear PS 101 Families,

I am happy to announce that PS 101 has been designated a Lighthouse School by The Leader in Me organization which exemplars school infused leadership.

Leadership is a quality that defines a mindset. When we recognize that we are all leaders of our own lives, it brings with it responsibility, drive, and success. We have worked very hard with our students to ensure they embrace the Leadership mindset of the 7 Habits:

  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (Personal Vision)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Personal Leadership)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Personal Management)
  • Habit 4: Think Win/Win (Interpersonal Leadership)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood (Empathic Communication)
  • Habit 6: Synergize (Creative Cooperation)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balanced Self-Renewal)

We congratulate our staff, students and families on this achievement and look forward to continuing to develop ourselves.

PS 101 Donation for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Dear PS 101 Families:

We are happy to announce our final count and the amazing schoolwide donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Our Service in Schools project included multiple student/parent, staff and PTA fundraisers to benefit those who need it most.
