Report cards were sent home with students on the last day of school. If your child was absent, you may pick up your report card in the main office during the summer from July 5 - August 10, from Monday through Thursday between 8:00 am -2:30 pm.
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.

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!

Box Tops are an easy way to contribute to the school and it costs you nothing extra. Just save the labels and turn them into the main office at any time.
So far this year we have $350 from this initiative. We could earn lots more if everyone shared their box tops!
Go to http://www.boxtops4education.com/earn for more information on the different types of box tops that may be submitted. You may also sign up for special offers and coupons. To sign up for coupon offers, search for "Simon Baruch".
As a reminder, your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law as MS104 PTA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. December 31 is the deadline for you to receive tax benefits for charitable donations for the 2016 calendar year.
Please see the attached letter from the Principal regarding the school's cell phone policy. Parents and students should read the policy and sign the letter declaring that they have read and understand the policy. Signed letters should be returned to the home room teachers.
There are two tracks for admission to the school--Academic Progress (AP) and Special Progress (SP). Each has its own criteria for admission.
Academic Progress (AP)
All students who live in the zone are guaranteed a seat in the AP program. Non-zoned students who live outside the zone, but within District 2, may apply through the school choice process and must satisfy the selection criteria outlined in the rubric for admissions. Please refer to the Selection Criteria Rubric for more information.
Special Progress (SP)
Admission to the SP Program (Special Progress) is based on a number of performance and behavioral criteria as indicated on the admissions rubric. This rubric is applied to all students that apply to the SP program. Students are ranked based on the score earned on the rubric, with higher scores on the rubric earning higher rankings. Please refer to the Rubric for Admissions - SP Program for more information.
Tours are given in the Fall for Fifth grade students and their families.
