Congratulations to the PS 172 community! Our school has been selected by the NYS Education Department for national recognitionbecause of the success of our educational programs and the progress made by our students. Since each state may only name two schools as National ESEA Distinguished Schools per year, this is an especially prestigious honor. Information about our school, our educational programs, and the successes of our students will be shared on the ESEA Association’s website, offering inspiration to schools interested in replicating our work. When our school appears on the website, I will be sure to forward a link.
This week our kindergarten students celebrated their emergent storybook unit with a special assembly presentation for parents. The students did a great job acting out their favorite stories!
The due date for middle school applications has been extended. Applications must be filed before the end of the day on December 14th. If you need assistance completing your child’s application, I urge you to contact the school for assistance. Mrs. Garcia is available to answer questions.
If you have not purchased a ticket for the PTA’s most recent raffle, I encourage you to do so. Tickets are $5 each or $20 for a book of five and they are going fast. Winning tickets will be drawn on Saturday December 15that the PTA’s “Breakfast with Santa” event. Don’t miss out! Additional tickets are available from the PTA (PS172Parents@gmail.com) or Mrs. Hendrickson.
It’s time for kindergarten registration. If your child was born in 2014, they are eligible to begin kindergarten in the fall. Apply online at www.nyc.gov/schools/kindergartenor call the school (718) 965-4200 for more information.
