Notes from Nature's Classroom @ PS 102

  • Week of July 27

    Do you like bugs?  We've attached some cool pics of a katydid that Kim found on our tree guard outside the front door of the school.  If you are on FB - you might want to join "bugspotting" a site where people post and admire pictures of insects - many are quite beautiful.  This link tells you more about our katydid:

    I can't say I like mosquitos and ticks! Check out these resources for info on mosquito control and how to avoid or treat a tick bite.

    ... and we've included pics from the garden.  The white flower is a balloon flower -they also come in shades of pink, blue and purple.  Can anyone identify the other plant and which insect needs it to survive?

Ask for password help if you don't remember your password.  If you are still having trouble, please send an email with your child's name and class to melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov This account also allows access to state test scores, attendance and fitness records.   A separate myschools.nyc account was created by the DOE this year for applying to middle school, high school, kindergarten, pre-K and G&T programs.
