  • Auction - Donations & Sponsorships needed


    Thank you to those families that have heeded our call for donations. However, we still need more donations to make this auction a success. We also need sponsorships to help pay for the cost of putting on the auction.  With SPONSORSHIPS (i.e. donations of cash to underwrite the cost of the auction) we can offer tickets at affordable prices and retain a higher profit to fund school projects.

    Please take a moment to review to our sponsorship offering by visiting our auction site online-- there are different entry points for different budgets. Please consider it as another way for your family, friends or colleagues to support the auction.

    The online auction website is now live so donations and sponsorships can be made online. You may also download the donation form and take a copy with you as you shop and dine out at your favorite places.

    Please email the PTA at ms104auction@gmail.com if you have questions about soliciting, donations or sponsorships.

    Save the Date -- Auction, March 16, 2017 in the school cafeteria from 6:30-10:30 pm.

8th Grade Announcements

  • Contact Ms. Schleifer immediately if you have not submitted your High School application as they were due November 28. The High School Application DOE deadline

     

    December 1.
  •  Students received High School Application Receipts on Tuesday November 13. Applications returned after the week of November 28 are still being processed, and once they are entered into the High School enrollment system, students will get a receipt.
  • Some 8th grade students received a yellow letter with suggestions to increase the likelihood of receiving a match. In addition to the yellow letter students will receive a high school application receipt and a new blank application.
  • Parents/Guardians are asked to consider the suggestions in the yellow letter to help optimize the chance of a student receiving a match. Families can also choose to have the application remain the same. The yellow letter is only a suggestion and it is ultimately a parent/guardians decision what they choose to put on the high school application.
  • The return due date for all yellow letters and applications is December 20, 2016. All students who received a yellow letter must return it, even if the application remains the same.
  • A reminder that there are schools that may have additional requirements, such as an interview, assessment, portfolio review or request of a writing sample, in addition to listing them on the high school application. Information on additional requirements is found in the box on the bottom of every high schools page in the High School Directory and/or on the school website.


*** Please make sure to check if the schools you have listed on the application have any additional requirements. If a school has additional requirements, it is important that the student complete all components in order to be considered for a seat in the school.

Some of the schools that have additional requirements include; Bard HS, Baruch HS, Beacon HS, School of the Future, Manhattan/Hunter Science HS, NYCISchool, and NEST+M. Please remember this is not a complete list of schools that have additional requirements.
