  • Breakfast and Lunch are Free, BUT…

    WE NEED ALL FAMILIES TO FILL OUT SCHOOL LUNCH FORMS EVERY YEAR. 

    Why?  Because from these forms, the school is able to receive additional State funding for our school programs, books, technology, and other resources.  We are able to use these statistics when we apply for grants.  (We have received over $500,000 in grants since this past January!)

    If you have not already done so, please complete the form online TODAY—it goes directly to the Department of Education, and none of the particulars are shared with the school or any other agency.  Let’s get all the funding we can for our students@229K! 

    Click here to complete the online form.  If you have questions regarding the application contact SchoolFood's Help Desk at 877.363.6325.  (If preferred, you may request a paper application from our parent coordinator and then submit it to the school.  If you have questions regarding this type of application, you may also contact SchoolFood's Help Desk at 877.363.6325.)

    Breakfast and lunch for Pre-K classes are brought to the classroom during the school day.

    Free breakfast for Kdg. to Grade 8:  Using the Bay 7th Street doors (exit 3), students enter the cafeteria by 7:50 AM.

  • A Message from Chancellor Carmen Farina

    November 1, 2017 ---  Yesterday there was an act of terror and together as a City we mourn the loss of innocent New Yorkers.  

    I am proud to be a New Yorker. Our City is resilient and our entire community has come together in solidarity. I'm so grateful for the first responders, educators, school staff, students and families for all they did yesterday and all they will do in the coming days to support each other.

  • New York City Welcomes Families in Need

    We are deeply saddened and concerned about the widespread devastation in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and other Caribbean islands in the wake of Hurricanes Maria and Irma. As you may be aware, many New Yorkers are preparing to welcome displaced relatives and friends into their homes. It is important that they know that we stand ready to welcome their children into our schools.

  • Where is Reading FREE all summer long?


    Summer Reading at New York Libraries

    Summer Reading is going on now at libraries across New York. Children and teens participating in the program receive book recommendations and engage in educational activities at their local libraries. The program is a fun way to prevent summer learning loss. When kids read over the summer, they build their reading skills and will be better prepared for the upcoming school year. Visit a library near you today to sign up your child.

    Summer Reading at New York Libraries is an annual program that brings children and families into local public libraries for reading and activities. In 2016, 2.1 million New York children, birth to 18 years, participated in the State Library-sponsored program.

    The State Library coordinates the program and works with the 23 public library systems throughout the state providing a summer reading theme, promotional materials, a creative idea manual, and state-level support.
