Attendance ↗️

Our schools are safe and supportive environments and the classroom is a better place when your child is here. More time in school means your child will get the social-emotional and academic support they need to thrive, learn, and be happy.

March Madness Reading Contest

Starting March 15th, PS 86 K’s March Madness reading contest will begin. Every Monday, students will receive a reading log for the week and will return it completed the following Monday.

Each week, classes will compete to move up in the bracket system and face another class. On April 4th, the final winner will be announced.

Students can read physical books from home or their book baggies OR can go online to MyOn and read. Reading logs should be filled out for reading time done at home only. Extra points will be given to students with the highest MyOn reading minutes.
