  • SCREEN FREE WEEK

    Starting this Friday, May 5th and continuing through Thursday, May 11th,  PS 102 will celebrate our 15th annual Screen Free Week.  This week is about taking a healthy break from the screens which are everywhere in our daily lives. Screen Free Week encourages students and families to think about how they spend their time,  to become aware of how much time we spend with our screens, to exercise more, read more and try new activities.  The PTA has fun activities planned all week to make it easier and to give you ideas for screen-free time.  For more information on Screen-Free Week visit www.screenfree.org.  Students have a chance to sign up on a Screen Free Week Challenge Chart in their classroom and will report each day they are successful. Students who make it through the week will receive a certificate and a small prize from the PTA.  Now is the year to give it a try!
