School Visit Celebration

Dear PS 101 Families-

Today we had a visit from the First Deputy Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer for NYC. They came specifically to see what makes #PS101 so #successful at a time when most #schools are struggling.

During the visit they spoke with Principal #Korrol and visited several #classrooms to learn about our online #instruction, how we are tracking and #assessing our #students, the engagement of our students, how our students were working with #technology in #education, etc.

I’m happy to tell you that the NYC officials were very impressed with our school, classrooms and students and amazed at the confidence with which our staff and students use technology in education.

I’m sharing this with you because we all have a lot to be thankful for and proud of when it comes to the amazing staff of PS 101.

I personally want to thank you our #teachers for doing such great work with our students and for continuing to ensure they have a successful education in creating the #ps101experience.

With appreciation,


Congratulations PS 101!!!

PS 101 Has Been Identified By New York State as a Rewards School!!!!

The State Education Department identified 155 high achieving and high progress schools as Reward Schools, Commissioner MaryEllen Elia announced today. Reward Schools are schools with high academic achievement or those with the most progress in the State and do not have significant gaps in student achievement between subgroups. Each Reward School will receive a certificate of recognition from the Commissioner.

“The teachers and administrators at these Reward schools work hard each day to raise the bar and give their students opportunities to achieve their dreams,” Board of Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa said. “The proof is in the results these schools have obtained and I am thrilled to celebrate their success.”

My Thanks & Congratulations to the staff, students and parents of PS 101 who all work together to create an amazing educational experience!

Teacher Appreciation Week :-)

Greetings Parents/Guardians-

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8-12!

I encourage you to work with your child to create a nice Thank You card or letter as a way of saying thank you to your child’s favorite teacher(s).

You can also fill out this survey which will automatically create an email to your favorite teacher.
*In the event you do not know the teacher’s email, you can send it to me at and I will forward the e-mail along to the teacher.

I am honored to lead a school of magnificent-caring teachers who work so incredibly hard to ensure your child is receiving a safe, fun and amazing education here at PS 101 🙂

G. Korrol
