  • NYC Student Account

    Your NYC student account gives you access to all of your child's academic results including the state tests. State tests results are released over the summer. If you don't have an account set up, you will not be able to access that information until school reopens in the fall.

     

    To set up an account you will need your child's Student ID number, which you'll find on his or her report card, as well as an Account Creation Code. The Parent Coordinator sent home letters with this information this week. If you already have an account, you don't need to do anything. If you don't, please use the information provided to create one.
     
    8th grade families, please note that MS104 staff will no longer have access to you account after June 30 so please make sure to set up an account before then.

  • Technology Update

    The PTA has just spent $90,000 to purchase new laptops for the school! This purchase ensures that there is a laptop cart with 35 brand new computers available to each house starting in the fall!. This is exciting news for the school and we could not have done it without your generous support.
     
    Our next goal is the purchase of new active panels or Smart Boards for the classrooms. Each panel costs about $5,000. Please make one final contribution before the school year ends to help us continue to improve our children's access to technology in their classrooms. 

    We encourage you to give what is best for their families; each and every donation is highly appreciated. If you would prefer to spread out your donation over time, you may sign up to become a monthly contributor.  Please use this link to donate  or download the form and return it with your check. 
     
    Thank you for your continued support!
