What’s New….

Your NYC Schools Account Can Now Be Set Up From Home!

Your NYC Schools account is the new system of online tools for you to look up your child’s grades, state test scores, and attendance at his or NYC public school. It also stores your family’s contact information, ensuring that the school knows how to reach you.

Registration for the NYC Schools account has been made easier. Parents can now sign up for a NYC Schools account from any Internet-connected device and access their child’s secure data.

A letter was sent home with your child that has instructions on how to set up the account. Some families may receive two letters (one for each parent), but everyone will receive one letter. You can set up with either parent as long as you use the correct code contained in the letter.

Your will also need your child’s ID number/OSIS number to set up the account. You can find the number on your child’s report card.

If you need more help, please drop by the school to see Nina Lipton, our parent coordinator. She will be available Monday through Thursday until the end of July and can assist you. You can also contact Mrs. Lipton by email nlipton@schools.nyc.gov or call 347-563-4461 or 718-459-1044 x 1010.

Support the PA Today!

Every parent with a student at PS 139Q is a member of the Parents’ Association (PA). The PA raises money through membership donations, candy and picture sales. In the past these funds have helped supply classroom materials, daily planners for the children in grades 3-5, student prizes such as ice cream parties, Butterfly Kits for the Kindergarten children and educational assemblies such as Seussical. We were also able to invite authors and artists to work with our children.

To ensure that our children receive the quality education that they deserve, we are asking you to make a generous donation to PS 139Q PA. All donations will go towards PS 139Q programs and the children of PS 139Q. We need your support to keep our programs alive! Whether you donate your time, or money, or both, you can help make this a great year for our kids. Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated.

On behalf of the students of PS 139Q, we thank you for your support!
