Welcome to PS 102

Screen Free Week 2018

This is our 16th Year!  PS 102 students, families and staff members will be asked to pledge to participate in Screen Free Week from April 23-April 29.  The key message is to look at the time you spend on a screen (for entertainment/busy time - we do understand most of us need a screen to do school/work) and try to replace that with more physical, social and creative activities!  To keep you busy and have some fun, the PTA is planning to host activities all week.  Please see the calendar for details. Most activities are open to all, some have limited space or are for certain ages as indicated.  If you can volunteer at any of our activities or have an idea on hosting an activity in or out of the school, please contact Ms. Sheri at 718-748-7404 x 2323 or melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov. Thanks.

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.
