5th Grade Prom
For the first year, 5th graders were able to vote
on their prom theme. Below are thier results:


Dear PS 101 families,

As you know the Mayor announced overall success with the NYS ELA 2009 assessment results. I am very happy to say that as a school, we also made gains and showed strengths in areas we were targeting for improvement.

This year, our 3, 4, and 5th graders “streamed” for Literacy. In other words, we used last year’s ELA scores (2008) plus teacher recommendations to place students in smaller groups with similar abilities. Hence, instead of 1 teacher teaching 32 students of various levels (in each classroom), 4 teachers taught groups of less than 20 students each with similar abilities, in order to give small group focused instruction. In addition, we introduced an Enrichment Academy to service more advanced students, in order to give them targeted instruction; this is where we observed our greatest gain.

While the data is not official, and still loose (we don’t have all test scores yet, but do have the majority), I am proud to share the following highlights:

Additionally, I am happy to report that approximately 30% of the students in the 5th grade 21st Century classrooms scored a level 4 on the ELA exam.
Again, let me remind you, all grade 3, 4, and 5 classrooms will be 21st century classrooms next school year, meaning every student in these grades will have their own laptop computer.

We hope to provide you with you child’s individual ELA 2009 scores by the end of next week (approximately May 15th).

I would like to thank and congratulate all the teachers and staff members who work so hard everyday to ensure your children are receiving the best education possible. Education is a group effort of various teachers and staff members who are constantly explaining, sharing, laughing and teaching your children.

With the deepest respect and congratulations,


Early childhood Family Night was a HUGE success!!

About Our School

At PS 101 it is our mission to prepare children to live and prosper in a technologically advanced world. In keeping with the Chancellor's regulations and the standards curriculum we have integrated the areas of math, reading, writing, science and technology into our daily curriculum. We believe that each child's unique needs and talents should be nurtured so that they will develop a passion for learning and acquire the skills needed for societal membership and meaningful employment. Our parents work with the school to encourage reading and higher level thinking skills, respect for oneself and one another, cultural awareness and diversity. The entire school community works together towards achieving high performance standards. We believe that every child should be provided with all opportunities available to ensure that they reach their full potential.
