School News

Welcome back Scholars and Parents!  As we start the school year, please be diligent about checking for notices via backpack mail.  Going out soon will be the lunch forms.  Although school lunch is now free for NYC participating schools, a large part of funding is based on completed forms returned to school.  We are asking for 100% participation.  You can also apply at www.nyc.applyforlunch.com and send in your confirmation with your scholar's name to Ms. Yearwood.
