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.

The training is a full day, from 10 AM to 5 PM, with an hour break for lunch. The cost of the training is $85 per student (plus a small booking and handling fee), and at the end of the training, each student will be "certified by the Red Cross."
Project Cicero Book Drive Volunteers Needed
MS54 will once again be participating in the Project Cicero book drive. Project Cicero is an annual non-profit book drive designed to create and supplement classroom libraries in under-resourced New York City public schools. We will be collecting books from March 7th to March 10th at MS54. We are looking for several volunteers to help with the collection. If you are interested, please email Lauri Landry.

You Won't Want to Miss this Feb. 9th PTA Meeting Featuring Survival Tips for Parenting Your Teenager
Please join us at 7 PM on February 9th to hear from Terence Houlihan on effective strategies for raising tweens and teens in light of the latest research on adolescent development. Learn why they do the things they do, say the things they say and discover ways to manage your child’s adolescence successfully!
For the past 20 years, Terence Houlihan has been a counselor and teacher to adolescents and counselors-in-training. He is also an international speaker who has presented to parents and delivered training seminars for teachers, counselors and principals on the developmental changes associated with adolescence.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
MS54 Cell Phone Policy
Cell phones must be turned off before entering the school. They should be put away at the start of your day so they are neither seen nor heard. In the event that such devices are seen or heard, they will be confiscated. Confiscated devices must be picked up by a parent or guardian. Parents must contact the Dean to make arrangements to pick them up.
Please note that the use of these items is not permitted in the school yard during lunch, in the cafeteria during breakfast, and during Early Academy.
