The fidget spinners have become a distraction for the children in the classroom and affecting their learning. These toys are now banned and are NOT allowed in school. Please have your child leave their fidget spinners at home for personal use. If children are seen playing with them in school, school staff will take them away and parents will have to come in to pick up.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
這個玩具令孩子分心, 影響學業.請提醒孩子將 Fidget Spinners 放在家裡,利用其他時間玩.如果學校教職員工看見任何學生在學校玩這玩具,將會沒收通知家長取回.在此事先感謝你的合作.
Updated Discipline Code
Recently, NYC schools adopted an updated Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning (Discipline Code). We encourage you to review the Discipline Code and become familiar with the standards of behavior—and the consequences if these standards are not met. Please also discuss the standards with your child.
Congratulations to the new members of the PTA Executive Board:

Round 2 will be open until Tuesday, May 9.
PS124 will NOT be listed on the Round 2 Pre-K Application.
If families haven’t applied to Pre-K yet, they can apply in one of three ways:
Over the phone: (718) 935-2067
In-person: Family Welcome Centers
If families have already applied, their Round 1 offer letter will be sent on Thursday, April 20. These families should not apply in Round 2 until they receive their Round 1 offer letter and decide if their offer is right for their child. If they are happy with their offer, they should register and reserve their seat for next fall by the Round 1 registration deadline on May 9. If they want to explore other options, they can decide to apply in Round 2 (which is not first-come first-serve).
9 students from the PS124 Soccer Club participated in the City in the Community Schools Cup competition sponsored by the NYCFC. The club produced a 1-2-0 record, just missing the playoffs. It was a momentous occasion because this is the first time the club played together against players outside the school. Despite the record, they played courageously and look forward to next year.
