  • ESMS wins funding through Participatory Budgeting!

    Thank you to all that voted - and to Council Member Julie Menin for her support!

    From this article on Patch:

    This project, costing $400,000, aims to enhance accessibility at East Side Middle School by installing a wheelchair-accessible exterior entrance and providing accessible lunch tables in the cafeteria for both students and faculty.

    "East Side Middle School is thrilled—and incredibly grateful—to have been awarded this funding, which will benefit both our own school as well as P.S. 138, with which we are co-located," said Jesse Kupferman, Interim-Acting Principal, East Side Middle School.

    "Responding to a real need, our community rallied for the participatory budgeting vote when they realized that alterations to the ESMS building could make it safer, more welcoming, and more accessible for students in wheelchairs," Kupferman added.

RELATED ATTENDANCE REMINDERS:

  • Students must be in homeroom at 9am to be marked present/on time.
  • You may view your child's attendance in NYCSA (schoolsaccount.nyc - updated weekly)
