A New PS 101!!! (currently under construction)

  Dear Families of PS 101:

As you may already know, PS 101 is about to get a new addition! We are having an extension built onto our school that will give us additional classrooms such as a Library, Art Room, Music room, Dance Studio, Pre-Kindergarten, additional classrooms, a brand new lunchroom, new play rooms,  and more! The project, which began in March 2017 will be lengthy and will take 2-3 years for completion. 

Here is what to expect with our new expansion:

1) Pre-K classes
2) Specialty rooms including Art, Dance, Music, etc.
3) School Library
4) A brand new cafeteria
5) Three new play areas
6) Handicap Accessibility
*We are working to make this website easier to access for people with disabilities, and will follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. If you need assistance with a particular page or document on our current site, please contact Margaret Lloyd to request assistance.

During this time there will be on-going construction during the day which will impact in our school in several ways:

1) We will not have access to our school yard which means students will not be going out for recess. Students will have their regularly scheduled Gym classes plus we will be integrating Move To Improve, a program that allows for physical fitness in a classroom setting. Move to Improve (and possibly other programs) will be integrated into the school day on a daily basis.

2) We will be re-arranging our dismissal exits and staggering dismissal times. We  cannot use the exits into the playground, so different exits will be used for dismissal than in the past (look for the dismissal signs posted on the exit doors around the building & of course we will be outside to guide you). We also will be dismissing younger grades slightly earlier to avoid congestion.

3) We are losing some classroom space and therefore will be moving our pull-out extra help (Reading Club, Math Club, Enrichment) into classrooms and creating co-teaching situations (two teachers in a classroom) to reduce class size.

As more information becomes available, I will share it with you. In the mean time, we are looking forward to our magnificent new building!
