Dear Earth School Families,

Please join me in congratulating our graduates and their families! It was wonderful to see the students present their work at last week’s graduation. Thanks to all the teachers, staff, and families who helped make it so great!

Earth School’s 4th and 5th graders who call themselves “Kids4LGBTRightsNow” have been awarded a Proclamation from the New York City Council. The award was presented at a ceremony last week at City Hall. They were also give a Proclamation from New York State presented by Senator Brad Holyman. The group and other Earth School representatives were invited to march with Mayor DeBlasio at the Pride Parade!
For more information, please check out the group’s website.

Narrative Reports were sent out on Friday. During the last week of July, we will notify families of class placements. Only families who have requested “hard copies” will have their letters mailed. All others will receive this news via email. (Remember to check you spam folders!) Classroom supply lists will be available on the website. For the school’s policy on class formations, please see Parent Handbook or click here.  


Please return all classroom books and materials. Please take home all their belongings including Lost and Found. We cannot be responsible for items left over the summer.

Have a wonderful and safe summer! See you in the fall!
