NEW PARENTS BREAKFAST

NEW MS54 PARENTS/GUARDIANS: If you will be registering your child as a student at MS54 for the first time in the 2015-2016 school year, we invite you to join us at our New Parents Breakfast on Monday, June 22nd at 8:30am. 

Even if you are unable to come to the breakfast, new families are requested to fill out the advance information form so that we can get a head start on our family directory and so we can communicate with you prior to the fall term.

(This event is for new parents only, not for current parents, except PTA board members and parents who are volunteering to set up.)



IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR 8TH GRADERS & THEIR PARENTS!

At this point in the school year, I want to remind you of the promotional criteria and share some information with you that is specifically related to your eighth grader.

HIGH SCHOOL ADMISSIONS INFORMATION

For 8th grade students and families interested in appealing their high school assignments, appeals forms will be available starting Wednesday, May 6th from the guidance counselors. The deadline for submitting an appeal is Wednesday, May 20.

For 7th grade students and families, the NYC DOE has information here on applying to high school in NYC.

Inside Schools is another excellent resource.

Please check our high school calendar for important dates on testing, open housing and tours.

MS54's high school page is in the process of being updated, but also has information on the high school admissions process and online copies of the 2014-2015 directories. The 2015-2016 directories will be added as soon as they are available.



THE ANNUAL FUND

It’s not too late. You can still support the Annual Fund. Just click here.

FUNDRAISE WITH FAIRWAY!

With the Fairway Community Partners program, for every dollar you spend at Fairway, 3% will be donated back to MS54 to support the school!

This is an amazingly easy way for MS54 to earn money for our school!  All you have to do is remember to use the card distributed to your student when you shop at Fairway!


If you did not receive a Fairway Community Partners card, or if you need a replacement, contact Anne Pejovich, Parent Coordinator.

LOST AND FOUND

Booker T.'s lost and found is in the copy room on the first floor, and parents are welcome to check the bin or on the shelves at any time. Anything not claimed will be gotten rid of on the last Friday of every month. Please remember to have I.D. with you when you come to school!

BE MEDIA SAVVY

We have a page on our website dedicated to media literacy, with information and videos that Michelle Ciulla Lipkin, Executive Director of the National Association for Media Literacy Education, has provided. This page is intended to be a resource for both parents and kids!

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 tinyurl.com/ms54socialmedia

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

Please continue to collect box tops for education, which can be found on General Mills products. A new box tops collection container is available in the school lobby. It is very helpful to the box tops team if you could please trim the box tops you submit and be sure that they have not expired.

FREE LUNCH FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS

This year, all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will receive School Lunch for free!  This service is part of the city’s efforts to improve the atmosphere and experience for students in our cafeterias.

Please fill out the family household financial form that will be included in the “Welcome Folders” that your children will receive on the first day of school. This form may also be filled out online this year.

If you would like to receive a refund for the balance in your MyLunchMoney.com account, you can Call DOE Food Services at (718) 349-5783. Refunds will be issued in about six weeks as a check and will be sent directly to the parent/guardian home address. Parents can call the same number to transfer balances to another child's account.
