IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS:

All students should be up-to-date with their immunizations to avoid exclusion from school. See the New York State Immunization Requirements in the registration packet.

Regarding Kindergarten students: Please be advised that NYS law requires that the children have their vaccines at or after their 4th birthday to enter school.  The recommended immunization schedule does suggest that there is a range for administration of the vaccines at 4-6 years but NYS law takes precedence over this range. All students must be up-to-date with their vaccinations in order to attend school .

Cabbage Grows in Brooklyn!

For the third year in a row, we are participating in the Bonnie Plant Company's Third Grade Cabbage Program.  All 3rd graders will 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 last year.  The last week of September a class by class survey showed that 38% of our cabbages were alive and well.  Some cabbages were enjoyed by the family earlier in the season, a few by squirrels or other pests, 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 received a certificate and small prize from the Garden Group.  Samantha in class 4-115  submitted the best cabbage photo from the school in time for the national contest! While she didn't win the state prize, she certainly grew a beautiful giant cabbage.  The company awards  a $1000 prize to a randomly chosen cabbage entry per state. 

Thank you James, Luna, Samantha, Noah, Christopher, Walter, Kemal and Camden!

PS 102 Stories

On Saturday September 15, PS 102 students and families participated in the International Coastal Cleanup!   Parent Coordinator, Margaret Sheri and our Beach Captain, former parent Michele Hern organized 119 volunteers (84 from PS 102 families) 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. This year volunteers were treated with a visit from Warner Brothers who were sponsoring 3 cleanups to promote Aquaman due out in December 2018.  Volunteers received an Aquaman visor (which was needed on the sunny day) and a movie ticket voucher via email. 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/
