The school calendar for the year 2016-2017 is now available. To view the calendar please click here.



PS 6 is committed to the DOE Organics Pick-Up program, through which our students MUST recycle their lunch waste. The administration needs parent support during lunch periods to help the children dispose of their waste correctly. We are looking for volunteers who can commit weekly to assisting in the cafeteria. Split a shift with a friend! It’s OK to split the shifts into bi-weekly shares but please work that out in advance. Please refer to the school calendar for breaks and days off.

If you have questions please contact, Yvette Bjork ( and Carrie Solomon (

Peer Mediation

peer mediatorsWe are excited to announce the launch of our PS 6 Peer Mediation Program. Fourth and fifth grade students will have a chance to develop their interpersonal skills as they become trained mediators in our school. It is also a wonderful opportunity for students to be an active participant in our school community, helping younger students proactively problem solve minor issues, problems and conflicts.
