  • Parent Meeting Invite: Friday May 7, 2021 9:30 am via zoom

    P.S.102 School Community,

    This has been a challenging time, and we are so grateful for your partnership throughout this school year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New York State Department of Health updated their guidance for physical distancing in schools, decreasing it from 6 feet to 3 feet for students in most cases. We have been working these last weeks to adopt the new 3-feet rule between students during academic instruction for our in-person students (while maintaining the 6-feet rule for breakfast and lunch) in as many classes as possible.  We hope to continue this effort and want to share details with you, hear your feedback and answer any questions you may have about proposed changes. I hope you will join us on Friday May 7, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. for a conversation. This conversation will take place on Zoom. Please see below the link to register for the meeting. Upon registering, you will receive a link to join the meeting on a computer as well as a call-in number if you prefer to join the meeting by phone.

    We look forward to meeting and hearing from you. 

    Sincerely,

  • Please read the attached letter from Superintendent Pretto on iReady assessments.

    April 19, 2021

    Dear District 20 Community,

    In an effort to assess your child's progress as we approach the conclusion of this unforgettable
    school year, we plan to administer the iReady diagnostic assessment in reading and math to
    District 20 children in grades 2-8.

    In District 20, we place data at the core of our process for making decisions, and view
    assessments as a beginning, not an end. The pandemic has interrupted many of the processes we
    are accustomed to using when gathering data, including how we assess student learning. For
    example, your schools have recently communicated with you that New York State exams in ELA,
    Math, Science, and NYSESLAT will be administered differently this year, and schools have been
    faced with the challenge of adapting internal assessments for remote students as well as for inperson
    students that must adhere to health and safety protocols.

    We are already thinking about next year. In order to be best prepared to design instruction and
    experiences that meets the needs of all students, and to design professional learning for school
    staff that builds their capacity to address these needs, we need to have a strong understanding of
    what students have accomplished this year and where they still need additional support. In order
    to accomplish this, all District 20 schools will administer the iReady diagnostic assessment in
    reading and math to students in grades 2-8. These two assessments will be taken online by both
    remote and in-person students. Families will receive a report of how their children are exceeding,
    approaching, or needing additional support in standards proficiency, and school staff will utilize
    this data as a starting point for planning curriculum and instruction for the fall.

    The iReady assessment is not a replacement for the state exams; instead, it is a standard-aligned
    screener that provides schools and families with one view of where students are excelling and
    where they could use additional support. These assessments will be used by school and district
    staff to better understand what strengths and struggles exist so curriculum and instruction can be
    tailored to meet student needs, and parents will have access to resources that can immediately
    support their children in specific areas. These assessments will not be used for grades, promotion,
    or admission to programs and/or schools.

    We will need your help. Taking assessments have always presented challenges, and computer
    assessments present unique challenges for both remote and in-person students. All students will
    need guidance and an internet-enabled device for the iReady diagnostic assessments. In order to
    inform the community and prepare for the iReady assessments, I will hold a town hall meeting
    with representatives from iReady on May 12, 2021. I encourage all families to attend, and we will
    record the meeting for those who cannot make it. We are committed to finishing this year strong
    and getting in position to start the 2021-2022 school year strong as well, and we thank you for
    your support in this effort.

    In partnership,
    David Pretto
    Community Superintendent

Summer Rising programs will also offer students local field trips to parks, pools, and other enriching outdoor venues that are educational and in accordance with State health and safety guidelines.

    All Summer Rising programs will follow rigorous health and safety protocols, including social distancing and mask wearing, and every location will have access to testing, nursing support, and a telehealth call center. In addition, breakfast, lunch, and a snack will be served to each student.

  • Please read this important letter from District 20 Community Superintendent David Pretto.

    April 14, 2021

    Dear District 20 Families and Community:

    The safety and well-being of our students and staff members are our highest priority. To this end, I am writing to you concerning the recent events in our nation that have targeted our AsianAmerican and Black communities. Although anti-Asian and anti-Black racism and violence have been a terrible reality for many of our families for quite some time now, the tragedies that occurred in Atlanta, Georgia and Minneapolis, Minnesota has moved these issues to the forefront of our schools. This is a moment for all of us to recognize the recent uptick of racial violence against our Asian community as acts of hate and violence against all communities of color. As the new superintendent of District 20, I have met with parent leaders and school leaders in our community and it has become abundantly clear to me these acts of violence are real concerns for our students and families. These acts have caused many in our community great harm, fear, and anguish. As your Superintendent, I stand alongside our families and believe that it is important to provide updates on how our schools are responding to the needs of our community.

    In response to the ongoing climate of anti-Asian racism and violence, District 20 schools are working diligently to support our families with continued communication with our families about the measures taken to ensure the safety of their school communities. Our principals are leveraging support from my office and the Brooklyn South Borough Citywide Office, engaging our students in anti-hate and anti-discrimination activities, and requiring all school staff members to undergo implicit-bias training. Our partners in the Office of Safety and Youth Development are helping our district plan targeted supports for our schools and to proactively promote a safe and supportive learning environment for our all of our students. Our schools should be safe spaces to have difficult conversations and as your Superintendent I commit that we will not teach hate, we will not allow hate to continue to hurt our families and we will not allow racism to rob our students of the hope for safety in our schools and communities.

    As your Superintendent, I want to assure you that issues of racism and equity remain focal points of my work. Our district’s vast diversity contributes to the tapestry that makes our community so beautiful and special. I am committed to ensuring that our students learn and thrive in an environment that is safe, supportive, and embraces the diversity that District 20 represents. As we close out the school year, I will continue to provide you with updates on the steps that we take to ensure the safety and celebration of our families in our community and nation.

    Racism and violence have no place in any community. We are here for you, your children, and our community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your school’s principal, parent coordinator, or to my office to inform us of any concerns. Thank you for your continued partnership and support.

    Sincerely,
    David Pretto
    Community Superintendent

  • Please read this important letter from our Chancellor - dated April 20

    April 20, 2021

    Dear Families,

    Last year, a police officer put his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nine minutes and twenty-nine seconds, but to me, it felt like an eternity.

    I felt pain and rage, deep in my bones. It wasn’t a new feeling. I have felt that many times in my life, as a Black woman, sister, daughter, and mother to Black children—and as an educator who has served children of color in this city for more than 20 years.

    That pain, rage, and fear has been present throughout the trial of the officer who killed George Floyd. I feel like I have been watching George Floyd die again and again, renewing the tragedy each time, as the jury and the nation have confronted what happened in the pursuit of justice for Mr. Floyd—and the family who is forced to go on without him.

    And now, the first step toward justice has been served.

    For me as a Black woman, for my brothers, for my mother and aunts who lost their brother to police violence, getting to justice is so important.

    For our Black and brown children to know that they matter, the accountability this verdict represents is so important.

    In a world that too often tells them otherwise, accountability in this moment tells the Black and brown children in our schools that their lives matter, and lifts up the importance of their futures.

    This is what anchors the work we do in schools every day—why we are so focused on creating welcoming, loving environments for all our children. We want to make sure that each child doesn’t just hear, but feels that they are important. We want them to feel that their teachers and school community value their past and present experiences, as well as their dreams for the future.

    For more than 20 years, I have experienced the sensitivity and wisdom of children—they know what’s going on, even those who may not be able to put it into words. They can feel the energy of the world around them. So we are making sure our schools are safe spaces for students to share their feelings. Every school is receiving resources to help facilitate open conversations and ensure our children have their questions heard.

    We also have mental health support in place for our students, teachers and staff to help grapple with any feelings that emerge. Because while the individual who took George Floyd’s life will be held accountable, we recognize that systemic racism, and the violence it fuels, is still creating tragedy and inequality across our country every single day. We are all part of the work to undo this harm and reach true justice.

    As you take care of yourselves and your loved ones the best you can, know that we are here in your corner, affirming the importance of our children’s future, each and every day. And that will never change.

    In partnership,
    Meisha Porter
    New York City Schools Chancellor

    Parents, guardians, and persons in parental relation who have children in P.S. 102 are eligible to serve as a parent member on the SLT, unless the parent is employed in the school.  If you are interested in serving on the team, please complete the tear-off and return it to the PTA mailbox by Monday, May 3rd, 2021.  Nominations will also be taken prior to the start of the election meeting.

    The candidates running in this election will be given a two (2) minute opportunity on May 5, 2021 prior to the casting of votes to provide a biographical description of themselves to the voters.

Covid-19 Notices

  • Please read attached letter - Confirmed Case of Covid 19 - March 16

    4/16/2021 2:12 PM

    Subject: Confirmed Case of COVID-19: Close Contacts Quarantined

    Dear P.S. 102 The Bayview at 211 72 STREET Community:

    The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the NYC Test + Trace Corps (T2) have determined that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19, and may have exposed others while at school.

    Below you will find guidance on next steps that will help keep you, your child, and our school community healthy and safe. The information below reflects the expertise of DOHMH, T2, and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

    What Happens Now?

    • All students and staff in the affected room(s) with the individual who tested positive are considered “close contacts,” and have been notified of the need to quarantine for 10 days from their last contact with the person who tested positive. These students and staff will transition to fully remote teaching and learning for this period.
    • T2 and DOHMH will complete their investigation to identify and notify any other close contacts in the building, who will also need to quarantine for 10 days.
    • Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.
    • All areas visited by the person with COVID-19 will be deep cleaned, disinfected, and reopened.
    • If your child is feeling sick, keep them at home.

    How do we stay healthy?

    Please remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:  

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).

  • Garden Group Meetings

    We are back!

    Parents will work together each Friday morning (unless it is raining) from 9:00 - 10:30ish to maintain the garden. "Meetings" are informal - but we do use this time to make plans for the garden season and future programming.  We will be wearing masks.  Gloves are available.  These sessions are cancelled in the event of rain.  If they are cancelled for any other reason, I will post on www.ps102.org as early as possible.   Hope to see you soon!

    If you are not getting emails about the garden and would like to -- please ask me to add you to the list: melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov.

    Book of the Month
  • 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.
