Welcome to the PS 126 / Manhattan Academy of Technology Website


May 11, 2015


Dear Families,


Spring is here and it is beautiful. While our classrooms are almost all air conditioned, the students do feel the heat, especially when they go outside for lunch. HOWEVER- it is still important to be dressed appropriately for school.



Shorts must be just above the knee.

No undergarment straps should be showing.

No sleeveless undershirts for boys.

If your child comes to school in an outfit that we feel is inappropriate, we will call home to get a change of clothes or provide a tee shirt or sweatpants.


Please keep this dress code in mind. THANK YOU.


Two important reminders:

1.        MAT families- Mr. Romero wants you to know sorry for the confusion- and that YES indeed- report cards were handed out last week. If you did not get one via the P/T Conference evening or your child last Friday, please contact Mr. Romero or Rebecca Johnson.


2.        PS126 families- we hope you join us on May 13 to meet the teachers of your child’s grade next year!


Finally- our school was chosen to host the annual dinner for DONORS CHOOSE this past week. 25 of our teachers who have successfully posted and funded projects on Donors Choose, along with representatives from many important organizations (GATES, DISNEY, VERIZON, HUNTER PR, LAKESHORE….to name a few)- met and dined with our staff. The teachers were eloquent and wonderful representatives of education. It was an incredible evening and a terrific opportunity to showcase our school. Along with that- it was huge honor- we were chosen out of all NYC schools!


With Respect,

Jacqui Getz
