Dear AmPark Families,
Some Good News at AmPark
- Our superintendent nominated AmPark for a Respect for All recognition school based on programming that promotes inclusiveness and respect within the school community; the degree of student involvement in these programs; and the school’s completed plan for preventing and addressing harassment, intimidation, and/or bullying as noted in Chancellor's Regulation A-832.
- We were awarded $68,000 from Bronx Borough President Rueben Diaz to support technology use in the 2021-2022 school year!!

Summer Rising (Summer School Program)
While plans are still tentative, it is now likely that AmPark will be partnering with P.S./M.S. 95 and their affiliated schools for the Summer Rising program.
Enrollment (K–8): Summer Rising enrollment through DiscoverDYCD for students in grades K–8 will begin on April 26. All students will have an opportunity to participate in the program and no student will be turned away. When enrollment opens on April 26, Discover DYCD will only include locations that have a confirmed CBO partner; additional program sites will be added on a rolling basis through May. If families visit DiscoverDYCD on April 26, but your school’s program site is not yet listed, please assure them that your site will be added soon. In the meantime, families should create an account on DiscoverDYCD.
