  • Family Day Cancelled Due to Weather!

    Dear PS 59 Families,

    We are very disappointed to announce that our Family Field Day scheduled for Tuesday, September 19th will be cancelled. Mr. Nadel, our PE teacher had a very exciting day of outdoor activities planned for our families but due to the weather forecast from several weather stations they are predicting 60% chance of rain. We know many families were planning taking Tuesday off from work and want to be proactive and cancel in advance to prevent them from losing their time at work. We will be watching the weather closely and inform families of a date to reschedule.

    Thank you for your understanding,

    PS 59

  • From the Chancellor

    September 7, 2017

    Dear Families:

    The New York City Department of Education (DOE) is pleased to announce that starting this school year, lunch is now completely free for all students in every New York City public school. Breakfast is already provided for free and now all meals will be served at no charge to families.
    It will now be even easier for all students to eat healthy and nutritious meals at school. Our food menus can be found at

    We need your help to make this program a success. All parents, regardless of income, must still complete a School Meals Form so that our schools get access to federal funding for this program and others. Please complete the form online at by December 29, 2017. A hardcopy of the form will also be sent home and is available at your school’s main office.

    If you have already added money to your MySchoolBucks account for your child’s lunches this year, or if you have a balance remaining from prior years, you will receive a full refund. DOE will follow up with information on how to get your refund in the coming weeks.

    Please join me in spreading the word that breakfast and lunch are free for all students every day. I hope your child will take advantage of this wonderful new opportunity and come enjoy a healthy meal with us.

  • Message from our PTA


    Message from the PS 59 PTA

    We would like to take this opportunity to welcome both new and returning families to PS 59 for the 2017-2018 school year.

    Save the Date!

    • Welcome Back Coffee for parents on the first day of school, September 7th, following drop off, in the auditorium
    • PTA Open House will be during Parent Teacher Conference night on Thursday, September 13th
    • Special General Membership PTA Meeting, September 14th at 8:30am

    What is the PTA & why get involved? All parents and legal guardians of children who attend PS 59 are automatically a voting member of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA plays an important role in supporting this great school by working hard to provide the “extras” that enrich our children’s educational experience. We partner with our parents, teachers, staff and community on many levels to bring fun and educational programs, events, services, and opportunities to our children. From our membership donations and fundraising events we support the school in providing classroom supplies, books, in school events, field experiences and much, much more.

    Field Experiences & Enrichment: As part of the philosophy and curriculum at PS 59, our children have MANY field experience and in school enrichment opportunities, presented by cultural organizations from across New York City. Our membership donations and fundraising efforts allow the PTA to contribute to the cost of these experiences.

    Membership Donations: PS 59 PTA membership donations are $10 per month, or $100 per year per family. We are a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, and your membership donations are tax-deductible. If you wish to make your donation at the start of school, please send donation in your child’s backpack or pay by credit card on our website by clicking the school store icon on the homepage. This is a suggested donation, and not mandatory for membership in the PTA.

    Thank you in advance for your support. We are looking forward to another amazing year and hope to get many more parents and guardians active in the PTA.  

    Excitedly, The PS 59 PTA
