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, Doria, Caitlin, Amira, Hei Tung, Anna  and Michelle!

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/

         

                                            

Registration for 2019-2020 School Year

Our school office is open for registration on school days between 9am-11am. Please read the following, and if possible download and complete the forms in advance to help make registration go more quickly for all families. 

Registration is for the 2019-2020 school year:

In order to register your child, you must have the following with you:

  • the CHILD whom you are registering
  • the child's BIRTH CERTIFICATE
  • the child's IMMUNIZATION RECORD (must have all vaccines to attend school - see below)
  • TWO PROOFS OF ADDRESS - must reside in our school zone

You must have all of the above information in order to register. We cannot register a student who is missing any documents. Please bring the originals and a copy for us to keep. Be advised that photo ID is required at all times to enter our school building. 

In order to save you time, you can print out the registration packet and bring it completed to registration. The medical form should be brought to your child's pediatrician and returned to school as soon as possible.

LINKS TO APPLICATION PAGES 1-9: Kapp1.pdf  Kapp2.pdf  Kapp3.pdf  Kapp4.pdf  Kapp5.pdf  Kapp6.pdf  Kapp7.pdf  Kapp8.pdf  Kapp9.pdf 

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 .
