Latest News from PS 31

  • Weekly Updates from the Administration!

    Thank you for all the kind messages about our staff video for student/parent appreciation day. We miss all of our students and families and seeing them everyday. 

    Grading Reminder: Grades of either Meets Standards (MT) or Needs Improvement (N) will be given to all students in all subject areas including science, social studies, and physical education. These grades are based on assignments and assessments that are being given by your child's class teacher as well as their science/social/PE teacher. Please work with your child's teachers if you are having difficulty with the time frames or the assignments.  The teachers will work with you but are required to give the MT or N grades for the last report card grade. This has primarily been all remote. Live sessions are a great way for your child to interact with their friends and get support from their teachers. Live Sessions are available from the classroom, science/social studies teacher as well as Mr. Duggan at different time frames during the week. 


    We know how difficult this time has been for all of us especially our students.  In an effort to support all of the families, we have some exciting news of a brand new google classroom opening called: The Calming Corner.

     The staff at P.S. 31, including Ms. Sanchez (School Counselor), Ms. Shapiro (School Psychologist) and Ms. Vargas-Pagan (School Social Worker) will be sharing resources for parents and students to address the social emotional aspects of this crisis. Parents will be able to login to Google Classroom with the following code “x26j4dm”. We will be posting new information on different topics to address social emotional wellness and provide activities that care givers can complete with students at home. As always, our goal is to provide social emotional support to our school community. We look forward to engaging with students and families in the resource center!

  • Weekly Update from the Administration!

    Thank you for sharing the wonderful images and videos from World Language Day and Spring Break Choice Board. Stay tuned for some amazing displays that we will share of the work of the students.  You amaze us.  Please continue to share your 8 choices with your child's teacher today. 


    As we return back to our NEW NORMAL, we move into our next phase of remote learning.  The classroom teachers as well as the science, social studies, and physical education teacher will be reaching out to set up some more live instruction opportunities starting next week. It will look a bit different by grade and class so please await for messages from your child's teacher and always check in for updates on their google classroom. Friday will become virtual trip day and classes will be attending virtual trips appropriate by grade with follow ups. This will  give students an opportunity to visit amazing places,  to catch up on work,  take an art class, work on so many resources our teachers have shared, and  engage in a physical education challenge. Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve week by week and build this NEW NORMAL which clearly looks and sounds different. 


    There is a tremendous amount of resources and messages circulating and we are making every effort to streamline them. Administration will continue to post messages on the app and the website every Friday. Ms. Vita will share resources for families only on Monday on the app. We will do our best to limit school messages to Monday and Friday unless there is an urgent update. Our messages will be resources, recess, and social emotional support. The teachers will focus on the academic updates through their google classroom, live instruction and vehicles of communication that they have been using.


    The PTA is doing an amazing job on social media platforms.  The PTA is using Instagram and Facebook to keep families connected. These platforms are separate from our app and website and are PTA forums. Thank you for your hard work. The Throwback Thursday of our staff was so much fun. Please see our staff throwback photos attached and challenge yourself to match the staff member with the photo. 

    Attached are some recess links to get the kiddos moving over the weekend and some supports to help our students during these tough times from Scholastic.
