Reminder: Please turn in Your School Lunch Forms

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This is a reminder to please fill out the school meals application if you have not done so already for the 2019-2020 school year.

Even if your child does not eat the food provided by the school cafeteria or you know that you do not qualify for reduced lunch, it is imperative to fill out the meal application form which determines the federal funding your school receives. It is required for every student to submit a meal application.

It is highly recommended to fill out the application online at nyc.applyforlunch.com which is quicker, easier, and more accurate than filling out a paper application. It also avoids any confusion if you may have other children within the same or different NYC DOE school. Online applications are submitted using your child’s 9-digit ID number.

If you have any other general questions, please feel free to contact SchoolFood at (877) 363-6325. Please have your child return the form to the grade assistant principal.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Sincerely,
The MS67 Administrative Team
Gr. 6 – Ms. Lam
Gr. 7 – Mr. Rizzo
Gr. 8 – Mr. Lampoutis

Sept Workshops – HS Applications & Practicing Empathy

High School Applications

Mr. Armstrong, our Guidance Counselor, will host a High School Application Workshop on Monday, September 23rd at 5pm in the auditorium for Grade 8 parents and students.  We hope you will be able to attend.

Practicing Empathy

Teaching children empathy is more important than ever. Empathy is beneficial for young children to:

  • -build strong relationships with other children and educators
  • -allows them to have tolerance and acceptance of others
  • -increases social harmony
  • -promotes good mental health and reduces the likelihood of bullying

Come learn about empathy and how to develop it with your child at home!
