βœ‰οΈ A Letter To Our Eagle Families


Dear Parents/Guardians;


Over the past few months, we have been preparing for our LiM Lighthouse Review on May 18, 2022. On this day, all staff and students should wear PS 23 gear to show #23richmondtownpride! We have confidence in the work we have done to prepare for this day, and when (not if) we are honored as a recertified Lighthouse School, an outdoor celebration will be planned to commemorate our accomplishments, most likely on June 27, 2022 (the last day of school) . Once we know our status following the review, a letter will be sent home with information about the outdoor celebration in detail. Thank you for sharing your beautiful children with us! Their success is ours, and our success is theirs!



#wearetherichmondtowneagles


With Admiration & Respect,


Mr. Proscia & Mrs. Mazza

✨✨ ADMISSIONS✨✨

πŸ“‘πŸ“‘. Gifted & Talented (G&T) Programs πŸ“‘πŸ“‘

Dear Families and Friends,

New York City’s Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs offer accelerated instruction to eligible elementary school students. We're writing today to announce that later this spring, families with children entering kindergarten, grade 1, 2, or 3 in the fall of 2022 can participate in G&T admissions. The G&T application for kindergarten, grade 1, 2, and 3 will be open from May 31 through June 13.

Here’s how G&T admissions will work this year:

FOR CHILDREN BORN IN 2017

This admissions process differs slightly depending on where (or if) a child of this age attends pre-K.

  • For children currently attending DOE schools, Pre-K Centers, NYC Early Education Centers (NYCEECs), or charter schools
    • All pre-K students will be evaluated by their current teachers.
    • If eligible, children will be nominated for G&T admissions.
    • Families of nominated children will receive a G&T eligibility letter before the application opens, inviting them to apply; if interested, they can apply when the application is open, between May 31 and June 13.
    • All eligible children who apply will be considered for offers.
  • For children currently attending private or parochial school, or children not yet in school
    • Interested families can apply when the application is open, between May 31 and June 13.
    • After the application closes, early childhood education experts will contact applicants to schedule an interview.
    • If eligible, children will be nominated for G&T admissions.
    • All eligible children will be considered for offers.

Please note: NYC families who applied to kindergarten are receiving offer letters this week. We encourage anyone who receives a kindergarten offer (either now or in the coming months through waitlists) to accept this offer by the deadline provided, even if they are hoping for a waitlist or G&T offer. Accepting this offer now secures their child’s seat at that program and will not affect their chances of getting a waitlist or G&T offer later.

FOR CHILDREN entering grades 1, 2, and 3:

Interested families with children entering grades 1, 2, or 3 can also apply between May 31 and June 13.

LEARN MORE

  • All G&T programs are expected to welcome and support all students, including children with accessibility needs, children with disabilities, multilingual children, and children in temporary housing. All families, regardless of immigration status, can apply.
  • For the most up-to-date information on G&T admissions, including details on upcoming virtual information sessions, how to apply, and how offers will be made, visit our website, schools.nyc.gov/GT.
