Dear Parents,


            On behalf of the P.S. 186 school family, we would like to wish you a happy and healthy New Year in 2014! 

             Thank you for making sure your children completed their vacation learning packets over the break. Thank you for assisting your children with their book reports, dioramas and the original creations of their Ezra Jack Keats books.  Furthermore, thank you for encouraging your children to read independently over the holiday break.

                      We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that daily attendance and punctuality are good habits that we encourage all our children to have.  Your cooperation is vital in making sure your child arrives to school on time each and every day.  Breakfast is served between 7:20 -7:50 am.  Doors will be open for all other children at 7:50 am.  We would like to remind everyone that we do follow the mandated school uniform policy.  Students should be dressed in their school uniforms each and every day. Please put the following important dates on your calendars:
