Dear Parents and Guardians
The picnic committee has been meeting to prepare for the school picnic on Friday, June 17th. For new members to the community, this is an all-school field day of organized activities, lunch, and sprinklers. Historically it has been held in Tompkins Sq Park but this year it will be in East River Park! Check out the map below if you’re not sure where that is.

Frequently Asked Question:
As a parent, do I have to go? No, you are welcome to if you can!
Students who regularly pack lunch will do so as usual. Those who eat school lunch or want to get school lunch will order a bagged lunch with the teachers. All lunches will be brought to the East River Park. Please include a water bottle, sunscreen and a cap or hat on picnic day.
Arrive anytime after 10am. If you plan to pick up your child from the picnic, please remember to SIGN THEM OUT with their teacher. Make arrangements ahead of time to have all of their belongings brought with them to the picnic. If you forget to do this, the school will be open. It will be a regular dismissal in the yard at 2:50pm.
