School Spirit Days Calendar 2021-2022

Do you have 101 School Spirit?

Dear PS 101 Families:

We are excited to bring back our PS 101 School Spirit Days for the 2021-2022 calendar! 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 without school pride and interest.

Here is a sneak peek at the fun-filled theme days planned for our students and staff, while engaging in learning. Mark your calendars and plan ahead!

As a reminder, we will also include specific school spirit days in our monthly parent memo on our website.

Special thanks to our Little Lighthouse Team for their collaboration, ideas and school spirit! I look forward to sharing in these special days with all of you.

Sincerely,

Gregg Korrol
