Welcome to PS 102

School Lunch Forms

Parents: PLEASE complete the "Application for Free or Reduced Price Lunch" on-line for the 2017/2018 school year.  Visit www.myschoolapps.com and complete the form as soon as possible!  We are "20K102". You may use one form for all siblings in the NYC DOE system grades K-12.  Even though all NYC Public School Students are getting FREE LUNCH this school year, we must get 100% of the lunch forms back because the information on these forms is used to determine federal funding for our school.   If you did not pre-qualify for free lunch status or do it on-line yet, please complete the paper form that was sent home 9/11, or pick one up in the lobby or main office.  Contact Ms. Sheri, 718-748-7404 x 2323 if you have any questions. Many thanks.

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/
