Talent Call! Are you a bona fide Broadway performer or do you know someone who is?

On Monday, May 19th at 6:30pm, the MS54 PTA is holding a benefit performance on BTW's own stage. We are very excited to bring outstanding talent to Booker T. and hope that you will support us by performing or helping us recruit for the event. Our goal is to put together a program of 10-12 acts, each supported by simple piano accompaniment.

Please contact Anne Pejovich if you are interested in performing, or to suggest the name of a performer who you can bring in for the event, to share his/her talents with us to benefit Booker T!

We need to hear from you soon to ensure enough time to put together a top-notch evening of entertainment for the entire family.

As you know, our students have attending grade-specific assemblies on social media, safety and cyberbullying from Michelle Ciulla Lipkin, Executive Director of the National Association for Media Literacy Education. Michelle also spoke to MS54 parents at our November PTA meeting.

We have a new page on our website dedicated to media literacy, with information and videos that Michelle has provided, so that parents and school staff can also benefit from the information that is being provided to our students. This page is intended to be a resource for our kids as well!

You can find it under Be Media Savvy: Information for Students and Parents under the Education links folder or go directly to the page at


MS54 PARENTS/GUARDIANS: We ask that you fill in the family information form so that we can maintain our family directory and so we can communicate with you during the school year.
