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!

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.
Curriculum Nights are held as part of the effort to increase the partnership among students, parents and teachers. Curriculum Night is held at the beginning of the school year to inform parents of the educational program for their child. The teachers will familiarize you with your child’s schedule and academic requirements during this time.
Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent/Teacher Conferences are held twice a year to enable parents to speak individually with their child’s teachers (November and February–afternoon and evening sessions). During these conferences, students’ work and grades are available for parents to review. Parents are encouraged to share their questions and concerns with their child’s teachers and to discuss plans to increase the academic achievement of their child. Appointments for Parent/Teacher Conferences are on first come basis. Teachers will have a sign-in sheet in front of their class and the meeting should take no more than five minutes. If you require more time, please contact the Parent Coordinator to schedule a house meeting.
