"A Community of Learners"

PS 112M. Mission
The staff and administrators of our school believe that every student will be given the opportunity to maximize his/her ability to learn.
We recognize that education is fostered through cooperation between the teacher, student, parent, and community.
To this task we commit ourselves to build an educational atmosphere for learning which we will provide our students the opportunity to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially in order to become future productive members of society.

Our Vision:
We see our school as a community of learners where all members of the staff, students, and parents support and accept each other, and meet the needs of individuals. It is the hope that all members of our community will become life long learners, be flexible, embrace change and become active participants in our school and society. Ideally, all members of the community will be responsible and accountable. The members will respect themselves and others. The members will develop critical thinking skills and the ability to communicate effectively.

P.S.112 CARES!!



 2nd Grade students were busy for weeks making crafts to sell to raise money for hurricane Sandy victims. They made frames, beaded necklaces and bracelets, glittered ornaments, flower pots, and painted rocks to name a few. The sale was a huge success!! They raised over $800!! A Red Cross respresentative visited our school and the students presented the money to them! Congratulations 2nd graders and Teachers !!!

After the devastating events of the earthquake and tsunami that affected Japan in March, students  from 1-213 began asking questions.  First they wondered exactly about what a tsunami was and what an  earthquake was.  Then their wonderings shifted to how they could help the people of Japan.  They decided to raise money for the people of Japan.  They created posters and went around the school to fundraise.  Along with  the Penny Harvest team, they raised $500 for the Japanese Red Cross.  As their inquiry broadened, they began reading  books about life in Japan.  Their questions then centered on children in Japan, how they dressed, what they ate, what  they did for fun, what kind of animals lived there, etc. As a culminating event to this project of humanity and empathy, students created collages that were put into book form.

Jacob Brandt's parents arranged for a visit to the United Nations, where they both work.  Dignitaries from Japan met with Class 1-213 to receive the book of collages and sympathy messages.  The students performed "Kuma San" that they had learned in Music Class with Miss Trudy, as well as "On Top of Spaghetti."  A film crew was there from a Japanese television station.
