Welcome to PS 102

NYC School Survey

Please complete your NYC School Survey today!  Green envelopes with a paper survey (and a unique code to complete the survey on-line at www.nycschoolsurvey.org) were sent home to each family on Tuesday 2/26.  It is only necessary to complete one survey per  family even if you have several students at PS 102.  If you lose your survey - contact melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov or the hotline at 1800-690-8603.  Classes are competing for incentive prizes sponsored by our PTA.  The first class in each grade to send in 100% will receive a prize of their choice. Any classes who are not first but meet 100% will be in a drawing for one more prize.  Your opinions matter! The survey lets the school know what we are doing well and where we can improve. Thank you!

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/

         

                                

Cabbage Grows in Brooklyn!

For the second 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 last  April 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.  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 will receive 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! Fingers crossed that she will be picked for the $1000 prize given to one entry per state. 

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