Daily Announcements

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your hard work and effort this past school year.  The many successes our students have achieved this year are a testament to the commitment and dedication that we share as a community of learners towards our common vision that our children have the right to a safe and supportive environment that promotes high academic expectations. 

Our last day for students is 
Friday, June 26th which will be a half-day with dismissal at 11:30am.  

While you and your kids are getting some much deserved rest this summer please enjoy some daily summer reading together to keep those literacy muscles strong.   This summer many of our students are participating in our Summer Enrichment Program located at PS/MS 15, 2195 Andrews Ave North which runs Monday-thursday, 8:30am-12:30pm, beginning Monday, July 6th and ending Thursday, July 30th

Please note that PS 396 is offically closed for the summer, however, we will return on August 31st for student registration.

Best Wishes,

Nicole A. Tiné, Principal, Rebecca Odessey & Theresa Costello, Assistant Principals


A big shout out for another amazing performance by our Musical Theater Club "MTC!"  This year's performance of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory was truly outstanding.  Big thanks to directors Jonathan Pellerin & Nancy Camacho for leading this group of over forty second, third, fourth and fifth graders this entire year and helping them achieve their own personal best.  Special thanks to all of our volunteer staff, parents and crew for their behind the scenes work on all those finishing touches including Ms. Kourkoulis, our art teacher and her work on the beautiful sets! 

In fact our students did so well they were honored by invitations to perform at both the Dreamyard Arts Festival & the Bronx Borough Arts Festival this year.  Go MTC!!!  We are so proud of them!
