The winning Participatory Budget project is…Rock painting!
We have ordered all the supplies and when they are delivered, the whole school will paint rocks. Then we will place all the rocks outside around our school to make P.S.159 extra beautiful!
But don’t be sad that your vote didn’t win because we will also be having a Family Fun Night later this year to tie dye shirts! In addition, Mr. DiDio and the school will be purchasing more recess equipment!
We hear you! Your voice matters! Happy Civics For All week!

We know the construction on our schoolyard has been an inconvenience. The construction was slated to begin in June, but unfortunately didn’t begin until late July. Because of this, the crew has been working 7a.m. -7 p.m. seven days a week to catch up.
We know what an inconvenience this has been for our community. It is our hope that all will be complete by June 2023. We will of course keep you updated on the construction progress as well as dismissal procedures for the fall.
Show your School Spirit by wearing our school T-Shirt or PS 159’s colors of Blue & White.
You can purchase a School Spirit T-Shirt from the PTA along with a variety of other School Spirit Active Wear. Also, our Physical Education Teachers have shirts and apparel for sale that help support our Physical Education Program.
**If you ordered school apparel from Ms. Marcus and did not receive it due to school closing, you will receive your order when school resumes.**
Wear anything that feels tropical or like summer (no bathing suits allowed)
