Picking up Students Early

Greetings Parents and Guardians-

Please be advised that students cannot be picked up after 2:00pm from their classroom. After 2:00pm, you will have to wait until classes are dismissed as per their regular schedule- which is shortly thereafter.

In general, we are finding many parents coming early to pick up students which is causing a loss of instruction for your child, as well as effects their attendance and disrupts the entire classroom as the teacher now has to stop teaching to assist with the dismissal. Additionally, please be reminded that it effects attendance as well. Attendance is based on your child’s time in school; once they leave, they are no longer present.

I highly encourage you to schedule appointments for after school hours and not pick up children early unless it is an emergency situation.

Thank you for working with us to ensure your child has the best education possible.

Please wear red, white or blue or choose to wear camouflage to show your patriotic support.

Support the March of Dimes on Friday, November 15th WEAR PURPLE

Please join our PS 101 family of students and staff to WEAR PURPLE in support of the March of Dimes on Friday, November 15th.

The March of Dimes funds lifesaving research and programs and works to end premature birth, birth defects, and sickly infants. Every baby deserves a healthy start and showing our support in wearing purple will ensure wide-spread education and knowledge for our youngsters at PS 101. Babies bring us great joy and they are our future! Let’s come together and work as a team to light it up PURPLE at 101.

Fall Flannel Wednesday – Wednesday, November 27th

We are pleased to announce our School Spirit Day on Wednesday, November 27th to cozy up with the fall season upon us with our Fall Flannel Wednesday! We want to show our 101 school spirit and get comfy to wear some warm flannel apparel! Please be sure your child is prepared for this fun-filled school wide event on Wednesday, November 27th.

 The Fall is a time for cooler weather.

In comes the chill of the brisk air.

There is a strong need for warmer clothing.

Bathing suits are something, you should no longer dare.


It’s a time for flannel shirts, thicker socks

and friends spending time together.

So, let’s stay warm, celebrating all that is happening in the Fall;

Changing leaves, flannel shirts and cool weather!
