after school

Fall 2016

June 15, 2016

Dear Parents,

As we wind down to the last few weeks of school, we are finalizing our plans for the Fall 2016 After School Program and we are very excited to announce two important changes to the After School Program. First, effective the 2016-2017 school year, the Central Queens Y (CQY) will be taking over P.S. 144’s After School Program on Mondays and Tuesdays.  All classes, registration, payment, and administration will be handled by the CQY on those two days.  For more information, please visit http://www.cqy.org/after-school-programs or you can email 144asdc@cqy.org. The Parents Association will continue to run the After School Program in collaboration with the school on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. All programs will continue to be operated on P.S. 144's premises.

Second, we’re opening registration early! The tentative schedule for the PA-run After School Program for Fall 2016 will be published for a preview period HERE from June 15th to June 20th. Registration will begin at 3pm on June 21st for Grades 1-5 and will be held on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please note that it is also very likely that some classes (especially our most popular ones) will reach capacity and may be closed to additional enrollment. Registration will begin at 3pm on July 11th for Kindergarten parents. If you are unable to register online and need a hard copy of the registration form, a limited number are available in the Main Office.  Siobhan Kyne, our Parent Coordinator, is also available to help parents register online.  Paper applications are accepted until the last day of school, June 28th.

We have updated our Frequently Asked Questions.  Please be sure to CLICK HERE to visit our FAQs page for more information.

We look forward to a new and exciting program.

The After School Committee


On Wednesdays to Fridays, if you are running late, have an issue with dismissal, or anything else that involves the staff at the front desk during the After School Program hours, you must call the ASP phone at 646-256-3538. The administrator for that day will have the phone with them during ASP hours.

If you have a question about the After School Program, the best way to reach the committee is by emailing us at: afterschool@pa144.com.

Note: The PS 144 After School Program is provided by the Parents Association of P.S. 144 in conjunction with the Department of Education.
