Attention 7th Grade Parents
Our seventh graders have begun to read James Patterson's Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life.  They will be reading and discussing this during their College and Career/Advisory periods.  We want to encourage you to promote reading at home and have discussions with your children about the positive experiences of reading. 



During the month of October our 6th graders will be visiting the NYC Public Library and the Freedom Tower. 



**Attention Parents**Please log into engrade and create a parent account immediately. Logging in will enable you to stay up to date with your child's grades.

From the Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Our school year is off to an amazing start. As we enter the month of October all students have taken their pictures for our new CAAS system. Students will be receiving their new ID cards by the close of business on Monday October 6th. Each student is responsible for their own ID card as they will be using it to swipe themselves in. The CAAS system will allow us to swipe each student as they arrive into the building. This system allows IS 131 to increase an accurate account of student attendance.
