  • Welcome Bailey Our Therapy Dog - Starting Week of Oct 25th, 2021

    We are very excited to announce that our school is participating in the NYC Department of Education’s Comfort Dog Initiative.
     
    Bailey, our NYC certified therapy dog, will be a part of our school community for this school year. Bailey will be included in classroom lessons on social-emotional learning, resiliency, and human/animal interaction.
     
    Additionally, students may have the opportunity to interact directly with Bailey for more individualized social-emotional learning opportunities. For example, interacting with Bailey may help students with counseling sessions meet their social-emotional performance (e.g. socialization and communication) goals.
     
    Bailey may also be used as part of our school’s crisis intervention protocols, including behavioral crisis de-escalation and bereavement assistance.
     
    For more information, here is an article from NY1 on the Comfort Dog Program.
     
    Please complete the Comfort Dog Permission form, found in the orange button below, to indicate whether you consent/decline to have your child participate in this program. This form should be filled out no later than next Friday, October 1st.
     
    If you have any questions regarding this program or your child's participation, please contact Laurie Posner, our School Psychologist (and Bailey's Human) at posner@esmsnyc.net.

Operoo - Digital Forms in Any Language

Operoo introduction

The PTA is proud to help support the school's use of a new data service called Operoo, which will allow you to read school correspondence in any language you select and to complete many school forms on your phone, tablet or computer. This week, Operoo will send you an email, asking you to set up your profile and fill out some initial forms like:

  • ESMS School Handbook and Parent Release Form

  • Emergency Blue Card

  • Student Directory

  • Cell Phone Database

  • DOE media consent

Later in the year, you'll be able to submit field trip permission slips, graduation materials and more. We hope it will help eliminate redundancy and make it easier to complete school and city form requirements.
