General Reminders

Please limit bringing forgotten items to school during the school day as this disrupts classroom learning and fun. I know this might not work for everyone, but if a lunch is forgotten students can always get school lunch free! And as for other items, our kids will remember more on their own if we don't always remember for them (something I have to tell myself with my own kids too).


Halloween Movie Night

Friday, Oct 4 6:00 - 8:00PM

Come in costume as your favorite book character, and enjoy Hotel Transylvania in our cozy MMR movie theater! Suggested donation for admission $5. Hot dogs, pizza, popcorn, and treats, all $1. Bring a baked good donation (store bought is fine) if you can!

School Picture Day

Thursday, Oct 10 during the schoolday

Photos by Stomping Ground will take place in the MMR throughout the day, by class and individual. More information will come home soon.

Around the Community

United Sports Youth League

Free Flag Football Clinics!

At United Sports Youth League, we strive to create an environment where young people from different racial, economic and social classes can come together to learn sportsmanship and create fun memories that will last long after the season has ended. Our mission is simple: instill lessons of respect, tolerance and inclusion through sports.

USYL is going to be hosting six weeks of free flag football clinics and game sessions for the community that focus on training and developing player skills. These sessions begin:

  • Saturday, September 28th at Joffe Park Ave. K and East 58th Street from 9:30a to 11:30a

  • Sunday, September 29th at the Brooklyn Parade Grounds Field 4 and 11 Caton Ave. and Argyle Road
