Welcome to PS 102

Please Complete On-Line

 All families are asked to complete a "Family Income Inquiry Form" this year.   This replaces the Eligibility for Free or Reduced Price Lunch" form which was requested in prior years since NYC School Food lunch is FREE for all students again in the 2018/2019 school year. 

This information is very important to ensure funding is available to our school!  We ask for 100% of our families to complete this form.  Only one form per household is needed.  Apply online starting 7/1/18 at myschoolapps.com.   Paper copies will be sent home the first week of school to those who have not completed the form.

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!

For the second year in a row, we are participating in the Bonnie Plant Company's Third Grade Cabbage Program.  Every one of our 3rd graders will receive a free mega-cabbage plant from 3/20-3/26/18 during a science lesson with Mrs. Willie and instructions for growing it at home and information on entering a contest from Ms. Sheri!  The pictures below were submitted from our current 4th graders who participated last year and completed a survey on their experience last October.  Over 40% of our cabbages were alive and well in October.
