Your Child's Information

This year we have a new way of keeping you abreast of your child's success within the classroom.

  • Our very own e-chalk website will be the main location to find your child's grades and assessments for this school year. Every parent received a special code for their child's class to log in and view their child's progress. Please note that your access code is case sensitive. If you are having difficulties logging in please email Ms. Gray at kgray6@schools.nyc.gov.
  • Use your NYC Schools Account to access key information about your child's progress. With your child's account you will be able to view your child's attendance, report card grades, and general student information in one of ten languages on a computer, phone or tablet. Every student should have received their unique access code and student ID number (which can be found on your child's report card) Please contact the school if you have not received this information.

Fun Activities

Spray Bottle Art: Nature Print

Materials:
  • flat nature objects (leaves, petals, etc.)
  • pebbles
  • paper
  • small spray bottles
  • liquid watercolors or food coloring
  • aprons
  • plastic trays

Procedure:

  1. First, collect a variety of leaves, grass, and flowers. (You will discover that flatter objects leave clearer prints.) Then lay them out in designs on the papers, weighting the objects down with small pebbles.
  2. Using spray bottles filled with food color, gently spray the paper. The key is not to drench the paper with paint!
  3. After the papers dry, remove the objects, revealing a beautiful nature print.
