REMIND and Homework

Happy Monday parents and families!

Your child’s teacher should have already sent home a link or class code for you to join their class on REMIND. If you haven’t received the class code, write a note to your child’s teacher or call our Parent Coordinator for the class code.

The REMIND app lets you receive notifications form your child’s teacher.

This year, teachers will also be posting Homework on REMIND daily so you can see a copy of what your child is expected to do every night for homework.

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.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Carranza Chancellor

PS 101 Construction

Greetings everyone!

I wanted to share a mid-summer update about our school. A tremendous amount of construction has been happening in our school, more so in the “old” section of PS 101, as the new section is basically finished. In the “old” section, some classrooms are being renovated, the auditorium is being changed (stage extended), bathrooms are being re-faced, the old cafeteria is being turned into classrooms (these wont be ready until 2021), and more.

I have been posting pictures on Instagram of our new building and I greatly look forward to seeing our students faces light up as they enter our school this September.
Reminder, the NEW MAIN ENTRANCE is on 24th Avenue.

As a reminder if you need to contact the school, it is best to do so by calling Mrs. Margaret our parent coordinator (347-563-4680) as no one is in the building this summer.

Our new school address is:
8696 24th Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11214

As a reminder:
School Hours:
M-F 8:10am – 2:30pm
(Breakfast: 7:40am – 8:05am)
Hoping you are having an outstanding summer!

New Mandated Immunization Requirements

Dear PS 101 Parents,

Students who have not completed immunization requirements will not be allowed to attend PS 101.

As of June 13, 2019, public, private and parochial schools and child care programs in New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements. This law applies to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and to all child care settings. This legislation is in response to the measles outbreak and will help contain the spread of measles among unvaccinated students.

 

All prior religious exemptions granted to students are now invalid. Please see the Parent Immunization Letter from the DOE for more information.

All NYC students must meet the immunization requirements in order to attend school. You can review the immunization requirements online at schools.nyc.gov on the Immunizations page. Please review the Immunization Chart and Parent Immunization Letter (translated versions available on the Info Hub) to ensure that students are in compliance with requirements for school year 2019-20.

Regards,

 

G.Korrol

Principal
