102 students perform as well on running tracks as they do in the classroom. Thank you Ms. Merino and the always amazing NYRR for this opportunity to showcase what 102 is all about.
Before emails, cell phones, text messages, websites, WeChat, and tweets, Parent-Teacher Conferences really was one of the few ways parents can talk with teachers about their child’s performance in school. Things have changed. Our teachers regularly communicate with families on the progress being made by our students, and Parent Teacher Conference shouldn’t be just another way for teachers to tell you something you probably already know.
Here’s what you should do: Speak with your child’s teacher not just about how they are doing, but what you should be doing next. Whether it’s reading more newspaper articles, practicing on Khan Academy, making up missed projects, or students getting their cell phone privileges taken away, families should go home on March 16th knowing exactly what they should do the next day to help their child succeed.
To help you with this aim, our literacy coach Ms. Jenal, ENL Coordinator Ms. Bagni, and our STEM coach Ms. Beltran will be hosting several short workshops on reading with your child as well as using technology to prepare for the state test. After meeting with teachers, you will be able to attend these short workshops and ask questions about how to support your child like an expert.
Additonally, Parent Coordinator Ms. Pimentel is organizing a schedule for parents needing translation on Parent Teacher Conferences so that our translators do not get overwhelmed during “rush hour”. If you are willing to translate, please reach out to Ms. Pimentel at 718-446-3308 ext 1331.
The 102 staff did an incredible job last year organizing our first-ever carnival, and parents have been requesting a repeat this year. We hear you and we are planning to host a carnival on June 3rd, 2017. Our esteemed STEM coach Ms. Beltran will once again partner with the District’s best art teacher Ms. O’Donnell to plan the details. They are incredible, and so will be the carnival. Be ready.
On Tuesday, March 21st PS 102 will be holding its inaugural Family Fun Fitness Night. The night is for students in grades 3-5. They need to bring a guardian, 18 or older, to join them from 4:30-6:30PM in the gym. The night will include a smoothie station, Zumba, martial arts, an obstacle course, and more. This is a great chance to have fun and participate in fitness and wellness activities with your child.
