BUS ALERT: Atlantic Bus Service

IF  your child is on an Atlantic, Amboy, Staten Island Bus, or Atlantic Queens Bus (Atlantic and its affiliates) your child may be affected by a potential disruption in yellow bus service. Atlantic and its affiliates have filed for bankruptcy protection and have informed the NYCDOE that they will cease operation on December 31. The NYCDOE is in the process of identifying other bus vendors to service these routes. You can call OPT during the break at 718 784 3313.
Again, this ONLY  affects children on the Atlantic/Amboy buses.

The students at our PS7 site have participated in the Made by Milk contest, by using milk containers to create a train.

We entered the train into the contest and NOW need your help in helping us win.
First prize is $5000 for the school, and we hope to use this money to buy IPads for the classroom.

Please go to the website – www.madebymilkcontest.com and click on the box that says All Grade Levels. Click on the down arrow and hit elementary school 1-5. Our school is listed as PS255Q@PS7 and the name of our train is the PS255Q EXPRESS. On the bottom of the picture, you will see a box that says, “Vote for this entry”. Click on the box to vote. After you vote, the picture of our train with a checkmark will appear, letting you know your vote was counted.

Thank you for your support.

Pinwheels for Peace

255 @154 has already successfully completed our first joint project with the general education school for the 2013-2014 school year. On September 20 pinwheels made by our students along with pinwheels made by the students of P154 were displayed outside our building. The pinwheels symbolize our combined efforts for peace and harmony. Our “pinwheels for peace” event was enjoyed by the student body and the community. We will keep you posted for our next big project!!
