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.
Many of our students participated in an Anti-Bullying presentation entitled “The Power of One”. It was a live production with student participation using colored masks portraying what bullying is, what can be done about it, and how every child has the Power to report and deal with bullying. They presented scenes that showed the roles of bullying, (bully, target, bystander), types of bullying,(physical, cyber, exclusion), the types of bystander behavior(watching, cheering, ignoring) and the proper actions that should be taken,(reporting, informing to stop, walking away, assisting the target by intervening).
The “Power of One” provided the strong visual image to our students that they have the power and ability not to be a bystander, making our PS/IS 102 Community a better and safe place. This message coincides with our 102 saying, “Think for yourself and care for others”.

Mrs. Gaffan has been working tirelessly all year with out Middle School Student Council to make students more socially aware of what they can do to improve the quality of life of people in our neighborhood, as well as globally. Beginning in October, the student council has run numerous fundraising activities starting with Treats for Troops and most recently with Pennies for Patients. The students have learned valuable lessons about how far their help has gone to help others. This is just a small sample of the amazing hearts that all of the students at PS/IS 102.
