Dear Fifth Grade Families,

At this point, you should have received the Middle School tour and open house information dates for District 2. Many of the schools require you to sign up for a tour on their websites. Therefore you should continue to check the websites of the schools you are interested in, so you can sign up for a tour once the they are open for registration, many of which will be starting today, September 13.   Also, please check my guidance corner on the website for future updates at https://ps77lowerlab.org/category/guidance-corner/

Student Council Letters for April and May

Screen Shot 2017-05-22 at 3.30.19 PMDear PS 77 and PS 198 Teachers and Families,                                                                                 May 19, 2017

We held the April 2017 Student Council meetings on Tuesday April 25th in room M1.  The greetings for both the lower and the upper grade meetings were given by Student Council representatives; two students volunteered to kick off each meeting.  The representatives shared a few things about themselves and then they answered questions from their peers, which allowed for the practice of public speaking skills as well as active listening and questioning skills.  This greeting style is also a great way for the representatives to get to know each other better!
