Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to P.S. 35, home of the Bees where every day we model and teach the three Bs:  Be respectful. Be responsible. Be safe.  Thank you for visiting our school website. 

Please note that school is closed for the summer except for those students who are attending summer school.  Student registration for the 2019-20 school year will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 3rd and Wednesday, Sept. 4th.  Please call the school at (718) 465-6820 August 26-30 for possible early student registration.  School re-opens on Thursday, Sept. 5th
Please encourage your child to read every day over the summer.
Please note that I am moving with my wife and son to Guinea, West Africa to lead a new school community -- The American International School of Conakry -- from where I will be eagerly following P.S. 35's success in the future.  It has been a great honor, privilege and pleasure serving as this school's principal over the past 13 years.  
Community Superintendent Beverly Mitchell will appoint the new school principal shortly.  In the meantime, please reach out to Assistant Principals Andrea A. Belcher and Ryoji Mizutani for any and all updates and questions about the school.

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


Mark Dempsey, former Principal


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.

PS35Q Respects for All!


In all NYC public schools, we always have the opportunity to highlight and build upon ongoing diversity programs and curriculum-based instruction. Schools also have the opportunity to embark upon new initiatives that promote respect for diversity and engage students in meaningful lessons and/or other activities that focus on preventing bias-based harassment, intimidation and/or bullying.
