  • What will school look like in September 2020?

     
    Many of our parents are wondering if school will be in the building, continue to be remote or some combination of both when we reopen in September 2020. The answer is we simply don't know yet.  We are awaiting guidance from the DOE and will post this information here at www.ps102.org as soon as a plan is in place. 
     
    If you haven't already done so, please complete the DOE survey for families and share your thoughts by Tuesday, June 30, 2020. The survey is anonymous and should take about 7 minutes to complete. It’s available in 9 languages, and those without the ability to complete it online can do so by calling 311. Thank you in advance for taking the time to again give us your feedback: it will help us to better serve you.

  • Districe 20 CEC Survey

    This is a survey specifically for parents of District 20 about the District 20 learning experience of their children. They can fill out one per child, but they should not forget to fill out the city survey distributed by the DOE. Their responses will help shape learning in the Fall, should we continue online.  If they have any questions or concerns, they can email us at cec20@schools.nyc.gov

    Dear Parents,

    The District 20 Community Education Council (CEC) is collecting input from parents of students in District 20 schools related to remote learning to better understand the educational experiences of our students and parents. We would like to hear your thoughts and concerns about the remote learning experience. 

    If you are a parent with a child enrolled in a District 20 school, please use the link below to complete the survey by Wednesday, July 15, 2020.  This is a confidential and anonymous survey meant only for parents with children enrolled in District 20 schools.  

    Please complete one survey for each child you have enrolled in a District 20 school (i.e., if you have two children please complete the survey twice) so we can capture information about each child’s remote learning experience. This is a survey specifically focused on the learning experience of children in grades K through 8.  If you would like to provide information related to your teen’s high school experience, you can also submit a separate survey. 

    The collective results of this survey will be shared with the community, but individual surveys will remain confidential. If you would like to submit additional information or raise other concerns, you can contact the CEC directly at cec20@schools.nyc.gov

    Please share this message with other parents in District 20 so we can hear from as many voices as possible.

  • Complete the 2020 Census!

    As we grapple with COVID-19, completing the 2020 Census is even more important now than ever. The number of New Yorkers who are counted will determine how much funding we receive for our schools and public services over the next 10 years. City schools receive more than $781 million every year in Title one funding, based on census data. In addition, the census helps determine funding for early learn centers, in-school and afterschool youth programs, childcare programs, and other services that support our school communities. You can play an active role in ensuring an accurate count by completing the census online at my2020census.gov, or by calling 844-330-2020, and completing the survey which is open until October 31.

  • Book Recommendation by Kemal 5-426

    The book, The Twits is by Roald Dahl. It is about mean Mr. and Mrs. Twit. They have 4 monkeys locked up in a cage, and the monkeys had to do everything upside down. The Twits also caught birds to be roasted in pies. Since the monkeys didn't speak English and the birds spoke English, the monkeys could not warn the birds. But one day, a bird that spoke both languages comes along and passed on the warning. So, the Twits decided to buy guns. While the Twits were away, the birds freed the monkeys and they all decided to turn the Twits upside down too! They did this by gluing everything that the Twits owned to the ceiling. This made the Twits think that if they stood in their heads, their world would "go right-side-up." But as they had been walking home, one of the birds had painted the Twits' head with glue. So when they went upside down, they got glued to the floor!
    I really like this book because it, like all Roald Dahl books, is hilarious and detailed. I would recommend this book especially for younger kids because it is easy to read and understand what's going on in the story.
    THE END

2019 International Coastal Cleanup!

On Saturday September 21st, PS 102 students and families participated in the International Coastal Cleanup at a new location - the Coney Island Parachute Jump.  Parent Coordinator, Margaret Sheri assisted our Beach Captain, Anita Raman, in organizing over 250 volunteers in the effort. Three hours were spent picking up and recording each item of litter found on the beach.  This year, volunteers were able to record data on the app "Clean Swell" you can use this app anytime to contribute to the Ocean Conservancy's database.  PS 102 has been participating in this citizen science project for the last 15 years. The information gathered leads to better solutions for packaging and legislation to help clean our oceans and shoreline.

It was an honor to have Mr. Barry Rosenthal join our clean-up and lead us in a group art project - the "trash mandala".  Mr. Rosenthal was most recently featured in National Geographic's September 2019 issue "Planet or Plastic". He creates his collections from found objects on the beach and his work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.  A link to his website: http://barryrosenthal.com/ 

Check out the great photos that Anita took and those submitted by families below! https://photos.app.goo.gl/wasQgTGKC6Rc36nj8

All students also received a certificate signed by our sponsor, The American Littoral Society.  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 third year in a row, we participated in the Bonnie Plant Company's Third Grade Cabbage Program.  All 3rd graders received a free mega-cabbage plant in April 2019 during a science lesson with Mrs. Willie and instructions for growing it at home as well as information on entering a contest from Ms. Sheri. The pictures below were submitted from our current 4th graders who participated this  year.  In mid-September a class by class survey showed that 28% of our cabbages were still alive and well.  Some cabbages were enjoyed by the family earlier in the season, a few by squirrels or other animals, and many were under-watered during summer vacation or over-watered when they first got home.  Thank you to all the students who submitted photos! These students will receive a certificate and small prize from the Garden Group.  Mia in class 4-425 submitted the largest healthy cabbage photo and is our school winner!  Six students (who had a contest-appropriate photo) were entered in the national contest and may be picked by lottery for the New York State prize! If so they will be notified in December.  The company awards  a $1000 prize to a randomly chosen cabbage entry per state. 

Thank you Mia, Maggie, Sam, Katelyn, Zoey, Caitlin, Doria, Amira, Hei Tung, Anna  and Michelle!
