New York State Exams

Grades 3–8 English Language Arts (ELA) and Math exams will be administered on March 28–30 and May 2–4, respectively. Here are some tips to help with test anxiety from our Guidance Counselors - Test Anxiety.pptx  

Friendly Reminder: Please leave your dog at home for pick up and drop off.
Parents are continuing to tie dogs up outside the building or bring them in to the vestibule.  Both options are unsafe for the dog and for the children.  

School safety and school staff will remind parents who bring dogs to the school that dogs are not allowed on school property.  

We have children in our school community who are terrified of dogs.  I know your dogs are sweet, but the children don't know that.  Thank you for your understanding.  



On March 21st to April 7th, Kindergarten through 8th grade students will be participating in the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Math-A-Thon.

Math-A-Thon allows students to build and practice essential math skills by solving math problems in a grade appropriate Funbook (Math Workbook).  Students will be asking for donations in support of their participation in the campaign.

New York City School Water
A note from Deputy Chancellor Rose followed by a detailed notice and Q&A regarding the specific number of lead elevations and the locations of the associated fixtures within our school building. 01 31 2017_M276 Backpack Letter.pdf 
Update as of March 14, 2017: Thorough lead testing of all water taps was completed in December. The results of those tests indicated that there were three sources of contamination -- one in a custodial closet and 2 of 3 spigots in one of the hand washing sinks in the cafeteria.  Those faucets have all been turned off. All other pipes in the building tested negative for lead and other contaminants. Our water is safe for drinking and hand washing!
