May 15th is Parent Engagement Leadership Night

Dear PS 101 Families:

We are excited to share with you that Wednesday, May 15th is Parent Engagement Leadership Night starting at 4:30pm sharp in our auditorium. The evening will showcase the work our staff and students have devoted to improving self-worth, integrity and peer relations.

4:30- 5:00 pm
In the auditorium, we will hold a Leader In Me (LIM)-Student Lighthouse Presentation highlighting and explaining the 7 habits and how you can use the habits at home to support your child and family.

5:00-6:15 pm
In classrooms, students will share their Leader In Me binders with you, including their Wildly Important Goals and their victories throughout the school year. Parents will then share in an interactive activity with their child.

I look forward to seeing you and spending this time with you and your child.


School Calendar 2019-2020

Please review the calendar for the 2019-2020 school year.

Parents/Guardians and families, please ensure you schedule any vacations, trips to other countries, etc during school vacation time.

When students miss school in large bulks of time, it significantly impacts their learning rhythm and ability to excel. Please support your child by scheduling vacations when school is not in session or over the summer.

Furthermore, ensure your child is present on the first day of school. No-show students (students with unauthorized absence) on the first day of school may lose their seat at PS 101, especially Kindergarten students as there is usually a wait-list.

Middle School Results for our 5th Grade Students

Dear 5th Grade Families-

Please be advised that your child’s Middle School results (which school they will be going to in September) will be available late this afternoon online.

I am told you will receive an e-mail when results are ready, and you can then log onto the MySchools portal where you will be able to view your child’s Middle School offer, as well as any additional information needed.

FYI, I will be meeting with our 5th Graders to discuss this with them before the end of the day.



Lock down today- Everything is OK

Please be advised we entered into a lock down today because a door alarm went off.

As you are aware, safety is our #1 priority at PS 101. A parent exited the building through an alarmed door. Once the parent heard the alarm, she walked back into the building to exit through the main entrance.

Even though it was obviously a parent of ours, we ensure student safety by holding a lock down and sweeping the building (checking every room, bathroom, closet, etc) to ensure no one is in the school that shouldn’t be.

I want to convey how proud I am of our staff and students for taking proper action and following all protocols.
