~We’re still under construction, so please continue to be patient if you are trying to reach anyone at the school.  You can call the school at 718-768-0057, then press 1 to reach our Parent Coordinator, Debby Wattenbarger.  You can also email at dwattenbarger@schools.nyc.gov

School Supply Lists for 2014-2015

If you didn’t get the chance to order supplies through the PTA, please take a look at the lists below to make sure you are ready for the Fall.   You can also visit www.buildakit.net to order supplies.  The kit(s) will then ship directly to your home address within 7-10 business days.  You may receive the printed list from your teachers in the mail, but it should be the same as what is listed here.

Kindergarten 2014-2015; 1st Grade 2014-2015; 2nd Grade 2014-2015; 3rd Grade 2014-2015; 4th Grade 2014-2015; 5th Grade 2014-2015

A few things to note if you are ordering supplies or going out to Staples and/or Target to purchase them individually:
  • Please label all items with your child’s name.
  • You don’t need to find the exact brand name that is listed, just make sure it’s a similar product.
  • Not everything needs to come in on the first day.

New Hours for 2014-2015 School Year

As you may know, the new teachers’ contract that was recently ratified will impact our school day next year.  The contract shifts time that was allotted for academic intervention services (AIS) to a blend of time allocated for teacher professional development, parent engagement and other professional work. Please review the new Day Schedule, and note that there will no longer be AIS time in the mornings before regular school hours:

8:20am Arrival

2:40pm Dismissal

Breakfast will start at 7:40am.  Remember, breakfast is free for all students.  Please do not drop off students before 7:40am.

Our PTA After School program is planning for new hours too.  Find out more about their offerings here: http://ps154.org/after-school/

You will receive letters in the mail from your teacher(s), the PTA and Mr. Havlik in August.  In the meantime, please continue to check our website over the summer and make sure you are signed up for email updates as this is the best way to get the latest information about our school.

Enjoy your summer!  We’ll see you back here on September 4th, 2014!
