Welcome to PS 102

June Message from Principal Sichenze

Dear Parents/Guardians:

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your support and cooperation this past school year.  Many of our students have done well academically, and have mastered the standards for the various curriculum areas on their grade.  This year we have implemented many new and exciting enrichment programs for students of all grades. We will continue to evaluate the educational and enrichment programs, as well as the teaching practices, so that the needs of all students will be met.  Our goals for the 2018-2019 school year include the refinement of our literacy and mathematics programs to ensure engaging and rigorous learning opportunities to meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards.

It is the support from the student body, parents and staff that makes our school special.  PS 102 is a place where learning is challenging, enjoyable, and where parents can be assured that their child’s well being is our top priority. Our staff is committed to another year of excellence in meeting all of your child’s educational needs. All students will be given a Summer Assignment packet to be completed over the course of the vacation. Students will receive a Certificate of Achievement in September upon completion of the assignment.  Please make sure students read and write each and every day to continue their academic growth and reinforce the benefits of reading for enjoyment.

Please be reminded that school resumes Wednesday, September 5, 2018.  Visit our school website for information and updates at www.ps102.org.  Morning arrival is organized as follows: Kindergarten will enter the auditorium through the front entrance.  Grade 1 will use the entrance near the garden to enter the auditorium. Grade 2 will enter from the large yard and proceed to the gym. Grade 3 and 4 will enter from the large yard and proceed to the cafeteria.  Grade 5 will enter from the large yard and proceed to the gym.

Due to the ongoing building construction dismissal will be as follows:  Kindergarten will be dismissed into the auditorium.  Grades 1 and 2 will be dismissed into the large school yard.  Grade 3 will be dismissed on the 71st street sidewalk. Grades 4 and 5 will be dismissed on Ridge Boulevard.  Please look for the class designation signs which will be posted.

In closing, my staff and I extend our best wishes to you and your loved ones for a healthy, restful and safe summer.  We look forward to welcoming you back in September and again, are truly grateful for your continual support.

 Very truly yours,

Cornelia Sichenze
Principal

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.
