Daily Announcements

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the staff at P.S. 396, I am happy to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year! The start of the each year is an especially exciting time that brings opportunities for reuniting with familiar faces, building new relationships, establishing comforting routines and welcoming academic adventures.  PS 396 is a very special place; our mission is to create a school that not only supports students towards meeting their academic goals but one that does so through an equally important focus on students’ social and emotional well-being and growth.  


Here are the school supply lists for grades K-2 & 3-5 for September 2015.  Pre-Kindergarten students will receive their lists in September.  2015-2016 School Supply List.docx

P.S. 396 was awarded and recognized as a
2014 Respect For All School!
