Does Your Old Instrument Need a New Home?
Are you sick of watching that old clarinet collect dust in your apartment? Booker T. wants it!
Recently, a few of you have graciously reached out and offered to donate used instruments to MS 54's music program. These donations have gone a long way toward ensuring that we continue to have thriving wind and string instrument programs here (an increasing rarity among public middle schools in NYC).
The majority of the instruments that we use here at Booker T. are quite old, and while age does not necessarily determine the quality of an instrument, 40 years in the hands of middle-schoolers certainly does, and repair costs are high.
This is why we are asking YOU to donate any instruments that you may be willing to part ways with. We will take any and all musical instrument donations as long as the instruments are in GOOD PLAYING condition. Cosmetic flaws are not an issue.
We are very proud of the fact that we have enough instruments here for everyone to use; we've never had to ask students to rent or purchase their own instrument in order to participate. Your donations will help keep this tradition alive and well!

Petition to Improve Our Playground Update
The petition addressed to Mark Levine, New York City Council Member, from the PTA and SLT, in conjunction with the MS54 Wellness Council, has successfully collected 485 signatures from our parent body to request funds to replace our regarded turf with a new, eco-friendly material.
The Parks Department, the owner of the playground, is currently seeking funding. We will keep you posted with new developments.
Thank you for your patience and support!
Free Microsoft Software
Parents and guardians of a student enrolled in a NYC public school are now able to download Microsoft software from https://studentoffice.net/, at no cost, on up to five of their family’s computers and five of their family’s tablets, smart phones, or other mobile devices.
Free products include:
1. Student’s date of birth AND a parent phone number, or
2. Parent email
The information that you enter to claim the download must match the information on your Blue Card on file with the school. Therefore, it is necessary that ATS have the most up-to-date parent contact information in order for the verification and download process to be successful. If you have trouble claiming the download, you can visit a school’s main office to make any necessary changes to your contact information.
There is no deadline to claim the free software. Families may download the software as long as they have a child enrolled in a NYC public school.
As Office 365 is a Microsoft Cloud product, parents must create a Microsoft Cloud account in order to download the software. The studentoffice.net website contains not only information on how to create an account, download the software, but also answers to “Frequently Asked Questions.” For technical assistance families may contact Microsoft Customer Service at: 1 (800) 642-7676.
