Muppets Most Wanted – Rated PG; 112 minutes    Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.

5:30 PM–7:30 PM (Information session at 6:00 PM) Middle School Fair 2014

Please note that students with addresses in North Park Slope in the PS/MS 282 zone (which includes the legacy PS 133 zone) receive District 15 choice, in lieu of District 13 choice, by default. The District 15 middle school fair is October 9, 2014, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Middle School 88. Children who live in this area and send their children to District 13 elementary schools are allowed to apply to both District 15 middle schools, by virtue of their address, and District 13 schools, based on their elementary school enrollment, and should receive a list from their school with both sets of schools.

Welcome Event a Huge Success!

We had an AMAZING turnout for the welcome event on Sunday. So many students and families, both new to the school and returning, came to be part of the festivities. Lots of teachers and staff, including Principal Hoke, were on hand to welcome and chat with the community.

We ate, we bounced, we did crafts, we painted faces, we played chess, and we spent time with old and new friends getting excited about the upcoming school year. Thanks to everyone who came out today to participate in this great event. Special thanks to all those who volunteered to help make it happen.
