Key NYC Discipline Policy
The school-wide code of conduct upholds the Montessori values of grace, courtesy, respect, and responsibility and is based on the following rights and responsibilities of the student.
All members of the school community—students, staff, and parents—must know and understand the standards of behavior that all students are expected to live up to and the consequences if these standards are not met.
The NYCMCS Standards of Intervention and Discipline Measures (the Discipline Code) provides a description of conduct that does not meet the standards of behavior expected of students in the New York City public schools. It includes a range of guidance interventions and a range of permissible disciplinary and intervention measures that schools may use to address misbehavior. The Discipline Code applies to all students.

Commitments for Excellence
The NYCMCS considers education to be a joint venture where the school and the family work together as a team. To do this, we have drawn up a series of expectations necessary to achieve an excellent education, some referring to the school and its staff and others to our parents. Parents are given a copy of the school’s commitments at the beginning of the school year and are expected to sign their own commitments. Use the following links to read what the school and parents commit to.
STUDENT SUPPLY LISTS for 2018/2019 SCHOOL YEAR
Our volunteer Family Association is made up of dedicated parents who have been a part of our school community for many years. On September 19th, we held the first meeting of the Association this school year. Since the children of last year’s officers graduated from 5th grade in June, there are several vacant positions on the Executive Board of the Association. In the meeting, those present were invited to propose themselves or other people for the vacant positions and received a description of the duties related to each one. Here are the minutes of the meeting: FA meeting minutes 9-19-17

President: Tiffany Stokes-Dinkins
Vice-President Randy Mendoza
Secretary: Melissa Velazquez
Treasurer: Sabrina Bryant
