Box-Out Bullying Assembly!

An intelligent and engaging assembly program that perfectly complements the concepts and strategies taught every day in school.

Box Out Bullying uses interactive live theater, audience participation, and proven effective anti-bullying techniques to capture the attention of all students. Your students are learning by seeing, listening, AND doing, which produces better results in message retention than using a video, a book, or lecturer. Students will laugh, cheer, and think! They will walk away with important tools and insight to be stand-up citizens and key players in ending bullying. Box Out Bullying is a comprehensive program which includes: a dynamic live theater performance, research-based curricula, and follow-up resource materials. This all combines to offer students, educators, and parents the tools they need to make their school safe and free from bullying.

Principal's Message


Dear Parents/Guardians:

Thank you for visiting our school website.  Thank you for choosing P.S. 35!

We are filled with optimism at the challenging work our teachers and students are embracing together each day. As we enter the last two months of the school year, we are confident at the successful results our children will  achieve.  

We give thanks for all of the incredible people in our school community who support our students' learning. Together, we are determined to create and maintain a safe and joyful learning environment allowing your child to excel each day in reading, writing, math, listening, speaking and working as part of a team.  Learning requires a safe and joyful environment! Learning is social!

Please join us at our next PTA Meeting on Tuesday, May 15th at 6pm  that night we are conducting elections for the PTA Officers for 2018-19.  If you have the time and inclination and dedication to truly make a positive impact on your child's learning environment, please consider tossing your hat in the ring for one of the available offices:  PTA President, PTA Vice President, PTA Treasurer or PTA Secretary. 

Meanwhile, our Saturday Academy test prep program led by Assistant Principal Andrea A. Belcher and staffed by a great team of dedicated teachers continues to flourish.

Our school band, through its work with Maestro Ryoji Mizutani on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, are sounding better and better.  The Morning Before-School Fitness Program with Phys Ed Teachers Julio Rodriguez and Christine Germani is also going well.

We continue to celebrate, honor and encourage our students in various ways, particularly through certificates and celebrations for our Writers-of-the-Month, Students-of-the-Month, those with Perfect Attendance, Positive Calls home, our Golden Shoe Award (for teamwork), our Golden Clock Award (for good attendance), our Golden Broom Award (for classroom orderliness) and our Positive Behavior Intervention  and Support framework, even through monthly Birthday-with-the-Principal events.

I encourage you to make an appointment with your child's teacher during Parent Engagement Time on any Tuesday 2:20-3:00pm to raise any questions or concerns. Please attend an upcoming monthly PTA meeting.  If you are a parent of a Pre-K to 2nd grader, take advantage of Library Open Access every Tuesday 2:20-3pm with Librarian Bonnie Brandstadter or take part in Crochet Classes with Art Teacher Silvia Huggler on Tuesdays 2:20-3pm.   We also have two additional Parent Workshops coming up on Tuesday, April 24th:  a Math Parent Workshop with Amy Dart and a Parent Fitness Challenge with Phys Ed Teachers Julio Rodriguez and Christine Germani.

Assistant Principals Andrea M. Belcher and Ryoji Mizutani, Parent Coordinator Linda Banks, PTA President Nathalie Duporte, the staff, and I welcome your concerns and ideas on how to improve our school. This is your school. This is our school.  If you are able to volunteer to assist our school during lunch recess, in the Pre-K, at breakfast or at dismissal, please let us know.  It takes a village!   Every person matters!

Again, thank you for your ongoing support and for choosing P.S. 35!      


Mark Dempsey, Principal
