Welcome to PS 102

School Lunch Forms

Beginning July 1, 2017,  parents are encouraged to complete the "Application for Free or Reduced Price Lunch" on-line for the 2017/2018 school year.  Visit www.myschoolapps.com and complete the form as soon as possible!  You may use one form for all siblings in the NYC DOE system grades K-12.  Completing the form on-line will ensure free lunch status from the first day of school if you qualify and it will also help us as we will have fewer paper applications to send out and collect. We are looking for 100% completion, even if you know you do not qualify or you do not plan for your student to eat school lunch,  as these forms are  used to determine federal funding for our school.   You will receive a confirmation letter of your lunch status within the first days of school or a paper form if you did not complete it on-line.  Thank you.

  • June Letter from Principal Sichenze

    June 27, 2017
    Dear Parents/Guardians:
    I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your support and cooperation this past school year.  Many of our students have done well academically, and have mastered the standards for the various curriculum areas on their grade.  This year we have implemented many exciting enrichment programs for students of all grades. We will continue to evaluate the educational and enrichment programs, as well as the teaching practices, so that the needs of all students will be met.  Our goals for the 2017-2018 school year include the enhancement of our literacy and math programs. These two programs have supported engaging and rigorous learning opportunities to meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards.
    It is the support from the student body, parents and staff that makes our school special.  P.S. 102 is a place where learning is challenging, enjoyable, and where parents can be assured that their child’s well being is our top priority. Our staff is committed to another year of excellence in meeting all of your child’s educational needs. All students will be given a Summer Assignment packet to be completed over the course of the vacation. Students will receive a Certificate of Achievement in September upon completion of the assignment.  Please make sure students read and write each and every day to continue their academic growth and reinforce the benefits of reading for enjoyment.
    Please be reminded that school resumes Thursday, September 7, 2017.  Kindergarten will enter the auditorium through the front entrance.  Grade 1 will use the entrance near the garden to enter the auditorium. Grade 2 will enter from the large yard and proceed to the gym. Grade 3 and 4 will enter from the large yard and proceed to the cafeteria.  Grade 5 will enter from the large yard and proceed to the gym.
    Dismissal will be as follows:  Grades K-3 will be dismissed into the large yard and Grades 4 and 5 will be dismissed on Ridge Boulevard.  Please look for the class designation signs which will be posted.
    In closing, my staff and I extend our best wishes to you and your loved ones for a healthy, restful and safe summer.  We look forward to welcoming you back in September and again, are truly grateful for your continual support.
    Very truly yours,
    Cornelia Sichenze
