The 2023-2024 school year promises to be high-spirited, with plenty of opportunities for students and families to learn, grow, connect, and engage. Families, your active participation, and communication will make a difference in your child's academic and social-emotional success. We count on you!

The Afterschool Program will begin on Monday, September 18th. At this time, we do not have enough information on the mandated family orientation for the program, so we encourage families to contact the Afterschool Director and support staff directly. In the meantime, we ask families to arrange to pick up their children on time. 
School Meals: 
As you already know, breakfast and lunch are FREE for ALL New York City Public Schools students. Still, we ask families to please take the time to complete the lunch form as soon as possible.  Even if your child chooses to bring their own lunch, filling out the form is very important! It ensures that our school gets all of the funding and benefits available to support teachers and students. Please complete this form today!
Here is the September Lunch Menu 
Supply List: 

As previously shared with families, ALL students must bring pencils, 2 or 3 notebooks, and a folder. NOT ALL ITEMS NEED TO BE IN SCHOOL ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. 

  • PLEASE DO NOT make bags so heavy that the child cannot carry them alone. You can send in a few items each day. Teachers and Staff cannot bring heavy bags upstairs to the classrooms. Please make sure each bag is labeled with your child's full name. 
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, September 7th at 8:10 am!
