PS 101 Summer Work (updated and working!!!) _7/7/20

Greetings PS 101 Families-

As promised, we have created a summer track of learning for all of our students who are going into Kindergarten- 5th Grade this September.

Directions: Each link below takes you to one packet which contains 6 weeks worth of work. You can save the link to your computer or print it out. The work is labeled week #1, week#2, etc for 6 weeks.

Remember, while this is not required, it is highly suggested you ensure your child is actively working through the summer to ensure they are ready for September. The work is designed to be self paced and can be done in most cases with parent assistance.
*Teachers are not available over the summer.


  1. Talk to your child about summer work so they understand the reason they need to do it- like exercise for their brain.
  2. Use the link below and save and/or print the work.
  3. Create a schedule your child so they know what needs to be done each day/week.
  4. My suggestion, and what I do with my own daughter, is we created a schedule from 9am-11am Monday- Thursday for her summer work, that way she feels that it’s not too much and still has a large portion of the day to relax.

End of Year Message from Principal Korrol

Greetings 101 families-

Congratulations on your child completing their school year! I know we don’t have all the celebrations we normally have, but it is important for you and your family to create a celebration for your child so they understand the value of their hard work this year and honor it. Think back to your own childhood, sometimes it is the simplicity of a parent or loved one giving you a great big hug, looking in your eyes and telling you how proud they are of you, that creates a warm memory that lasts forever.

When I reflect upon this year, to me it’s a reminder of how important it is to appreciate all we have in our life. As we never know what the next day will bring, it’s the small every day moments, the relationships we have, and our ability to see what is possible in each day that can make life amazing.

At this point, we don’t know what September will look like for school opening, but whether we return partially, fully or remotely, there’s one thing I know for sure- the PS 101 staff will make it the best situation possible for your children!

A few reminders:

  • Report Cards will be available in your MySchools account on Monday June 29.
  • Summer Work for 101 students will be posted next week. Please ensure your child does the work so they are ready and prepared for September.
  • Supply lists will also be posted next week.
  • Teachers are not available over the summer– their Remind texting service and Google Classrooms will be closed. If you have any questions, please call Ms. Margaret.
  • I will update the PS101 website with new information as I receive it. If you are subscribed, you will get these notifications automatically.
  • You can also sign up for Remind text messaging from me. If you don’t have the code, you can call Ms. Margaret and she can give it to you.
  • PS 101 is open for summer meals– breakfast and lunch as a grab and go.

Be well and safe-
