Our second cycle of academic after school sessions will begin during the week of January 13th. This next cycle is due to last 5 weeks and will end at the time of our mid-winter recess. Please make sure to sign any permission slips that have been sent home. Students without a signed permission slip will be unable to attend the academic after school program.
Our first enrichment after school cycle is ending. End dates have been sent home with your child, posted on Dojo, and listed on the school calendar (www.ps172.org). Information about the next enrichment cycle will be distributed by early February. I will keep you posted about any specific dates / timelines.
The PTA’s Dance-A-Thon will be held tonight from 7pm – 9pm. The proceeds from this event will support our school’s next cycle of enrichment after-school programs. We hope you can join us!
As you know, kindergarten registration began on December 11th. The deadline to submit an application is January 21, 2020. Parents and/or guardians will be able to submit applications online, over the phone, or in person at a Family Welcome Center. Parents are invited to check out the NYC DOE kindergarten page for more information. Go to https://www.schools.nyc.gov/enrollment/enroll-grade-by-grade/kindergarten****Please note, students currently enrolled in a PS 172 Pre-k program must submit a kindergarten application. Pre-K students are not automatically registered for kindergarten. PS 172 office staff will be contacting any pre-k parent that has not yet registered.
At–Risk plans are being developed for any child that is struggling to meet grade level standards or promotional standards. Teachers will be contacting parents next week to set up a date and time to meet and go over each specific plan.
For the health and welfare or all of our students, it is important to stay up to date on your child’s immunizations. The school will contact the parent of any child who is missing one or more vaccinations. Please schedule an appointment as quickly as possible. Any student not up to date on immunizations runs the risk of being excluded from attending school.
