DANCE FESTIVAL – Grades K, 1 & 2 Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Dance festival
May 15, 2018

Dear Early Childhood Parents/Guardians:

To celebrate our students and their study of the arts through music and movement, kindly save the date to join our PS 101 FAMILY AT THE 2018 Dance Festival scheduled for Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 9 am.

We are lucky to be hosting our Dance Festival at IS 281 due to the construction area in our yard. IS 281 located at 8787 24th Avenue, will allow us to use their schoolyard for the Dance Festival.

Please be advised, students in kindergarten, first and second grade will perform their dances and share in the festivities. At the conclusion of the showcase, students will immediately return to our school to resume instructional lessons. Students cannot be signed out after their performance by any means and are to complete their educational day as regularly scheduled.
Please be sure your child has a towel to sit on in the yard.

This year’s theme includes a sweet treat of candy songs and melodies.
We hope you can save the date and join in the fun.

Very truly yours,

Gregg Korrol

Happy Mother’s Day

With respect,

Dear PS 101K Parents/Guardians:

At PS 101 we are so excited to tell you that Wednesday, May 23rd is a Parent Engagement Night! We have an incredibly special evening planned for you and your child that celebrates The Leader in Me Program and the work your child has completed thus far on their journey to Leadership.

The Leader in Me is based on the book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, one of the most celebrated books on Leadership around the world. The 7 Habits teach principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, and collaboration.

The Program for the evening is as follows:

  • 4:30- 5:00 pm: A Student Presentation and slideshow of pertinent information to highlight and explain the 7 habits and their influence on academic achievement and social relationships.
  • 5:00-5:30 pm : Celebration of Student Work– Students share their Leadership Binders with their Parents/Guardians.

Absences & Lateness

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Regarding attendance, please be advised that when your child is signed out of school, they are marked absent for the portion of the day they are not present. Attendance is based on being present inside the school. Attendance records are legal documents and time in school must be accounted for properly. So please understand that if you are signing your child out of school for a medical reason or any other purpose, they are marked absent for the portion of the day they are not present inside the school. The same holds true for lateness. School starts at 8:10 am. While we give a 2-3 minute leeway for students to come into the building, if they are late, they are marked late, regardless of reason. Again, attendance and being marked present is about being present inside PS 101.

Thank you.

PTA – School Leadership Team Meeting – May 15th

PTA-SLT Nom Memo 2018

Parent Teacher Association of P.S. 101
2360 Benson Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11214
May 3rd, 2018
Dear Parents & Guardians:

Our Next Parent Teacher Association meeting will take place at the cafeteria on May 15th at 8:30 am. It is very important that you attend the upcoming meeting. At that time, we will be electing 2 parents to serve on the School Leadership Team for a term of 3 year(s).
School leadership teams are teams of parents, teachers, administrators, and others who are responsible for setting the educational direction of a school. Leadership teams have two main tasks: the development of a Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and the alignment of a school-based budget with the CEP. All New York City public schools are required to have a leadership team that involves an equal number of parents and school staff. By getting involved in a leadership team, you can help our school meet this mandate. Your participation will also ensure that the parent voice is represented in important decisions that will impact teaching and learning in our school.
Participation on a school leadership team requires time, dedication, creativity and hard work. While compensating team members adequately for their contributions is not possible, the efforts of team members are recognized with a nominal reimbursement for some of the expenses such as child-care and travel that are incurred as a result of participating in team activities. Each team member who contributes at least 30 hours annually to team activities is eligible for a reimbursement of $300.
Parents, guardians, and persons in parental relation who have children in PS 101 are eligible to serve as a parent member on the leadership team, unless the parent is employed in PS 101. If you are interested in serving on the team, please ATTEND our meeting on May 15th. Nominations will be taken at the meeting if the nominee is present.
Even if you are not able make the time commitment that being a school leadership team member requires it is critical that you attend the election at the parent association meeting on May 15th at 8:30 am The parents elected to the team represent you and your child’s interests. It is essential that we elect a diverse group of parents that reflect our school community. In order to assist you in electing good representatives, all candidates will be asked to introduce themselves during the meeting and explain why they want to serve on the team.
Thank you for your participation. We look forward to seeing you on May 15th at 8:30 am.
Antonella Floridia-Morales
PTA President
