TOWN HALL MEETING 10AM, Monday, November 20th

Dear Families of PS/IS102Q,

I was made aware that The Daily News published a news article around noon citing that two of our students were taken by the police after making a school threat to injure other students.

We found a notebook two weeks ago with highly questionable content. Our School Climate Team members immediately jumped into action and we were able to identify the authors. Guided by our school’s Threat Assessment Protocol, we quickly gathered extensive information relating to these students and then shared them with the Police Department. Officials then determined that there were no credible threat.

The central inquiry for school threat assessment is whether a student posed a threat, not whether they made a threat. A threat made by a 10 year old and the exact same threat made by a military-trained, armed individual carry vastly different significance, and the response to each will not be the same. Should we determine that there is even hint of potential danger to our students, our school will immediately contact families and engage in the appropriate actions.

Student safety and clear communication to families are core values of 102, and we plan on speaking with our families in greater detail the first moment we are able to. We invite all families to join us for a special Town Hall Meeting at 10AM Monday, November 20th.

I look forward to sharing with you findings that I am sure will reduce any lingering stress or anxiety.

Should you have any immediate concerns, please email me at and I will do my best to address them.

Introducing Ms. Goldschmidt

Dear Families of 6-305 and 6-428,

Valuing education is a key component in ensuring our students are successful learners. At PS/IS 102, your child’s education is our primary concern and we always want to make sure that the best teachers are available to your children.

I am pleased to introduce the newest member of our middle school staff, Ms. Michelle Goldschmidt, who is taking over for Ms. O’Hara. Ms. Goldschmidt comes to us from one of our neighboring schools in District 24. Last year, Ms. Goldschmidt was a 6th grade ICT teacher at PS 153 in Maspeth. She will be working with Ms. McCabe in Math and Ms. Ranzie in Science.

We are excited to have her bring her knowledge of Go Math and the New York State Science curriculum to our 6th grade class.

Ms. Goldschmidt is dedicated to the success of all of her students and we are happy to have her join the 102 family.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.


William Ko, Principal
Cathy Weinstein, Assistant Principal

FAMILY NIGHT: September 26th, 2017

To Our 102 Families,


Welcome back!

102 is a special place, there’s no doubt about it. We’re special not because of our test scores, our beautiful facilities, or the incredible talent we have amassed in our staff. These are all byproducts of the one key ingre

dient we are most proud of:

We appreciate and we care about one another.

It’s this gratitude and trust we share with one another that enables our children to succeed, and we all thank you for allowing us to be a part of your children’s lives.

Tuesday, September 26th is Meet the Staff Night, and you will be able to meet with your child’s teachers and other support staff. Your teacher will also share with you our schoolwide work around personalize


d learning to support every student meeting the most important grade-level benchmarks.

Online programs, workbooks, before school learning, after-school enrichment, small-group instruction during the school day, ongoing guidance, whatever it is that a student may need we’ll do.

We look forward to sharing more information with you around this initiative and see you Tuesday!
