NYC School Survey

Your Voice Matters. Please complete your NYC School Survey today!  Green envelopes were sent home with students on 2/27/18. You can use the code found on your survey to complete it on-line at nycschoolsurvey.org  or complete the paper survey and send it in with your student. The first class on each grade to get 100% surveys will receive a fun prize from the PTA. If you complete it on-line or prefer to mail it yourself, just send your child's teacher a note.  The deadline is Friday March 23, 2018.  Please note - one survey per family per school. Usually the oldest child will receive the survey.  If you have any questions or need assistance contact Ms. Sheri at 718-748-7404 x 2323 or melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov. Thank you.

    Inspirations! Art Gala scheduled for March 15th

    We hope everyone will visit the gym to experience the amazing art that happens at PS 102. Work created  in our school day programs and in after school, holiday & Saturday classes led by volunteer teaching artists will be on display during conferences on Thursday March 15th  and on Friday March 16th for class visits. There are 13 classes offered between 2/10/18-3/10/18 in which your student can make art that will be included. A notice went home 1/31/18 and appears here.  Classes are first come/first served and many fill so you should return your form and payment to the PTA via your child's teacher as soon as possible.  We will contact you to offer alternatives or a refund if your requested class is full.  We collect a materials fee of $10/class per student. All classes are posted on the calendar and will be marked FULL if/when they fill.  Please refer any questions to melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov.  Enjoy!

PS 102 Stories

  On Saturday September 16, PS 102 students and families participated in the International Coastal Cleanup.  Parent Coordinator, Margaret Sheri and our Beach Captain, former parent Michele Hern organized 74 volunteers in the effort. Two hours were spent picking up and recording each item of litter found on the beach. PS 102 has been participating in this citizen science project for the last 14 years! The information gathered leads to better solutions for packaging and legislation to help clean our oceans and shoreline. For information on ocean pollution, the international clean-up effort and to view past results visit https://oceanconservancy.org/trash-free-seas/international-coastal-cleanup/



Cabbage Grows in Brooklyn!

Last year we were chosen to participate in the Bonnie Plant Company's Third Grade Cabbage Program.  Every one of our 3rd graders received a free mega-cabbage plant in April 2017 during a science lesson with Mrs. Willie and instructions for growing it at home.  In the fall students completed a survey on their experience.  Over 40% of our cabbages were alive and well in October. Here are photos from some of our cabbage farmers.  We hope to participate again this spring.
