School Year 2016-2017

Welcome and Welcome Back, Parents!

Looking forward to a wonderful school year. Please keep in touch and check out this site to keep up to date on what’s happening at our school. Please volunteer for PA activities! We are looking forward to meeting you. You can always reach us at info@pa196.org

If you prefer to receive documents in your home language, the school is using a new app for your phone that will make the whole process instantaneous!

Just download the Paideia LINX application onto your iPhone or Android phone, register in your native language, and when you receive an email from school, the application will AUTOMATICALLY translate into one of 23 languages. The app is FREE and you can choose to receive only PS196 messages. Our school ID is 4480-0853.

To get step-by-step directions in 8 languages, please go to our school's blog (http://ps196q.edublogs.org/2015/12/17/get-instant-translations-for-free/). Ms. Maurer, our parent coordinator, Ms. Riccardo and Ms. Gulotta, our English as a New Language (ENL) teachers and Ms. Koatz, our assistant principal, are also available to help you set up your account.
Ms. Migliano will host Coffee & Conversation meetings.  The focus will be on our schools’ goals for the 2016-2017 school year. All coffee and conversation meetings will take place at 8:15 a.m. in Room 203.
