  • Opt-In to Blended Learning

    The opt-in option to change your child from all-remote learning (Group D) to blended learning is will be opening soon. If you are interested in transferring your child into blended learning, please complete this form by 10/30/2020. Once the form is complete you will receive an email confirmation and we will supply further information on regarding dates of when this request can go into effect.

    If you are already in blended learning (Group A & B), you do not need to do anything. 

    Remember, at any time of year, for any reason, you can choose fully remote learning for your child. This means they would learn 100% remotely (all online, from home).

    Thank you,

  • Harvest Day 2020 POSTPONED to Monday, November 2nd

    Due to the inclement weather that is being predicted for Monday, October 26th we need to postpone our Harvest Day activities to Monday, November 2nd.  With everything going on, we are thinking of everyone's health and safety. We do not want our community to be outside in the rain and due to social distancing regulations, we cannot hold this event indoors, it must be held outside.

    Like Mr. Randy keeps reminding us, Rule 9 - Be flexible! 

    • On Monday, October 26th Ms. Meggin will host our Monday Virtual Recess at 10:00am and 11:00am
    • On Monday, November 2nd we will host our in-person and virtual Harvest Day Celebrations.

From the Staten Island Advance!

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- While a new dedicated maritime-themed school is no longer being pursued on Staten Island, several schools in the borough are integrating maritime curriculum into a variety of subjects.

PS 59, New Brighton, has been incorporating maritime-themed curriculum into its daily teachings by focusing on the impact of the New York Harbor and the Billion Oyster Project -- which works to restore 1 billion live oysters in the harbor over the next two decades -- across all grades from pre-K to fifth grade.
