November School Spirit Days

Celebrate Veteran’s Day – Friday, November 8th – WEAR RED, WHITE or BLUE-

In honor and remembrance of our veterans on November 11th, our school we commemorate the holiday together on to commemorate the bravery and sacrifice of our soldiers. Please wear red, white or blue or choose to wear camouflage to show your patriotic support. Your participation and school spirit is greatly appreciated as we honor the heroes who fought and continue to fight for our freedom and liberty with 101 pride. Wear RED, White or Blue on Friday, November 8th.

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!


Welcome Back To School – Chancellor’s Letter

Welcome Back – Chancellor’s Letter

September 5, 2019

Dear Families,

Happy first day of school, and welcome back! I hope you’re as excited as I am to start the 2019–20 school year.

This is a great time to be a student in a New York City public school. So many of our students and schools are doing better than ever. We have the highest-ever graduation rate, and more students graduating ready to succeed in college. And I expect more great things for our students this year.

From our youngest learners to our oldest in high school, our children are the next generation of thinkers, leaders, creators, and change-makers. We are ready to propel each of them on that path.

Our commitment holds steady regardless of a student’s family income, race, religion, nationality, disability, language spoken at home, sexual orientation, gender identification, or any other dimension of their identity. Everyone at the DOE is working hard to ensure that every student gets the rigorous, inspiring, engaging, nurturing education they deserve.

I call this the Children’s Agenda—every day and every decision is about getting each student what THEY need to succeed. We understand that no two students, classrooms, or schools are alike, and recognize the beautiful and distinctive nature of each.

At the same time, we are offering our students and families strong support, creating more welcoming schools, and ensuring a rigorous curriculum for all. Students across the city will benefit from social emotional learning, restorative justice practices, and culturally responsive curriculum that reflects who they are.

This is what it means to advance equity now.

All of us at the DOE hope you love what you see today, and wish you a successful school year.
