Welcome






Dear Parents & Guardians,

Welcome to Ditmas I.S. 62, we are happy you have chosen our school as the pathway to success for your child! Students are asked to continue reading throughout the summer & the DOE (Department of Education) is excited to share myON's digital library where New York City families have free access to more than 6,000 books - including Spanish titles, through September 30.

Families with children of all ages can access the digital library through a single login for each age group, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on any web-enabled device. To get started, please find translated instructions to access the myON Digital Library & browse titles from the Top 500 Popular Reads.
