Run for the SLT next Friday 12/22

Become a Part of PS11's School Leadership Team

What is the SLT?

 The School Leadership Team SLT is a collaborative team made up of an equal number of faculty and parents.

What do they do?

The PS11 SLT has two primary responsibilities. One is to evaluate the academic needs of PS11 students and produce a Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP) that proposes ways to meet those needs. The other is to monitor whether the current CEP is being implemented. In addition, the SLT chooses to organize Family Workshops.

What are my responsibilities?

 You would need to attend monthly meetings which are held on one Tuesday a month. The dates are as follows: 1/9, 2/13, 3/20, 4/17, 5/8, 6/12, & 6/19 (if needed to complete CEP). 

How do I become a member?

 The PTA will be holding an Expedited Election to fill a mid-term vacancy on the School Leadership Team (SLT) at the PTA General Meeting on December 22, 2018.

Nominations for the seat will will be taken from the floor, and the election will directly follow the nomination process. All candidates will have the opportunity to give a 2 minute statement about why they are running. 

If you would like to run for the seat but cannot attend the meeting, you may ask someone else to nominate you and read your 2 minute statement, or you may send an email to and/or with your self-nomination and your statement.

All parents and legal guardians are eligible to hold sit on the SLT, unless they are an employee of PS11. 

Please see the SLT section of the PS11 website for more information about the role and responsibilities of the SLT. Or feel free to email with any questions.



National Champs!

We Are National Champions!

The Chelsea Chessmates competed against the best in the country at the grade nationals in Orlando, and our Chelsea Chessmates are National top ten champions. So proud of our team for surviving 7 rounds of tough competition over three days, for fighting against all odds and for displaying amazing team spirit by supporting each other through losses and wins.  Our third grade team placed 9th in the country (Joshua, Viggo, Jack, Sabella and Amaira) and our second grade team was 8th nationally. (Avaan, Christoffer and Indira). We now prepare for the New York city Championship on January 6.

Sign Up for Young Artist

Welcome to the PS11 Young Artists Program, where each week, a small group of children meets with a parent mentor to learn and create. At the end of 8 classes, each child will select a piece of artwork to display in a show! Classes begin the week of January 16.          

This year, the program will accept applications from children in grades 1 - 5 only. This program has been very popular and historically, not every child who wishes to participate has been able to enroll. We ask that you only apply if your child is able to commit to attending all classes on time, barring illness or emergencies, of course.           

You can see a description of classes here. Sign up for the program's lottery will begin on December 15 and will end on December 19 at noon. You can sign up here!


Most classes fill up quickly, so it is a good idea to choose more than one class. If you would like to assist a teacher so that we can accept even more students into the program, please email ASAP.

Subway Delay Verification

Subway making you late for school lately?  If your child has been marked late because of a delayed train, the MTA's Delay Verification can help.  It should take 10 business days to get the verification returned to you.  Bring it to the office and the lateness will be coded differently in the system. Though your child will still have a lateness, the attendance system will code it as a lateness with a note.
