P.S. 154 News & Information

Posted on May 22, 2015 : News

Dear PS 154 Community Members,

Hark! Does your iamb itch? Doest the sweet trills of the spondee sweep thee off thy feet?  Do dactyls float your boat? And the trochee? Does the tragic trochee hit you where it hurts? These important questions and all matters poetical shall be addressed forthwith when PS 154 hosts its

EIGHth annual
Poetry Night!
Thursday, May 28th, 2015
6-8 pm
Multi-Media Room
(registration at 5:30 in the cafeteria)

On this valetudinous evening of vivacious verse, sassy students will stand up and have their say, speaking their astounding stanzas for 2-3 minutes each.  All poetry participants will be asked to dress in a style appropriate to poetry, to rehearse their perspicacious pieces at home, to step up onto the stage to standing ovations, and to deliver their orations with aplomb!

All students not averse to participating in this versifying event should request a missive sent via email to Fiona McBain by Wednesday, May 27th expressing their desire to perform.

[In other words, if your kid wants to read a poem at the May 28th Poetry Night Extravaganza, please send an email to Fiona McBain at fifinyc@icloud.com by May 27th so we can put him/her on the roster.  If email is not for you, please call 347-693-7631 and leave a message with your child’s name and class.] 

Your confirmation email from Fiona will include a bio information sheet.  Also included here: Poetry Bio Sheet. for your child to complete. Please print it, ask your child to fill it out, and bring it to the cafeteria on May 28th at 5:30pm to register. We will have the poem your child chose for the magazine on hand, however, if he or she would like to read a different poem that’s okay, too, just bring it with you. The performance will begin in the MMR at 6:00 pm sharp.

As poetry is art for all and we are all for poetry no aspiring word-smiths will be turned away. All are welcome to read, listen, and appreciate the spoken word.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On May 13th, PS 154 will be holding an “optional” Parent Teacher Conference from 4:30pm – 7:30pm.  During this time, parents are invited to meet with classroom/cluster teachers.  You will be able to discuss your child’s progress throughout the year.

This is not a traditional Parent Teacher Conference as it is not mandatory.  There will be no report cards given prior to this conference.  These meetings are intended for parents who have follow up questions related to their child’s academic performance subsequent to our March conferences.

Look for the sign up form for these conferences in your child’s school bag today or tomorrow.  The teacher will assign the time of your conference once they receive all forms back.  Please note that because of the number of students we serve, time for each conference will be limited based on how many families sign up.  Thank you for your understanding.

PS 154 · 1625 11th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11215 · phone: 718.768.0057 · fax: 718.832.2573
