New Morning Arrival Location
Beginning on Monday November 21st, in order to shorten the distance into school on these cold ever more wintery feeling days, give some shelter to our staff who are out greeting families (thank you Caitlin! 🙂), and put some space between the 95 and AmPark student arrival areas, we will be moving our arrival location from the 95 gate to the Betty Park. Please note that this entrance is on Gouverneur Ave, only a few yards closer to Van Cortlandt Park South from our current arrival area. We are hopeful that using this entrance will keep everyone a little warmer and safer coming in to AmPark each morning.
Please know that your child's report card will be available for your viewing beginning this Monday, November 21st, in your child's NYC Student Account. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the office if assistance is needed in activate/access your child's account.
Thursday and Friday/November 24th and 25th, school will be closed for the Thanksgiving Recess. We are thankful for all of you and wish you and your families happy, healthy, and joyful Thanksgiving holidays ahead.
In honor of New York’s long history with the Thanksgiving Day Parade, AmPark will host our very own First Annual Balloon Parade.
On Wednesday, November 23rd, preschool through 2nd grade will put on a balloon parade for grades 3rd - 5th. Parents are welcome to join in on the fun!
Spectators can line the sidewalk of Hillman Avenue to watch our early childhood grades march with their decorated balloons.
Our parade will take place from 9:00 - 9:30 a.m. Classes will exit through the main doors of the building, head right, and walk around to Sedgwick Avenue, and then back to Hillman Avenue.
We hope to see you there!
