School spirit days

Happy 100 years PS 185!

PS 185 is planning a year of centennial fun and learning to mark this major milestone. Each month join us as we learn and celebrate each decade. 

World Kindness Day

On Friday, November 13, 2020 we would like to celebrate your kindness by participating in World Kindness Day. On this day, we would like to highlight the importance of being kind to yourself, to others, and to the world. We will be creating a schoolwide Flipgrid for all blended and remote learners to participate in. The worksheet and flipgrid link is located in all Google Classroom pages. We can't wait to hear all the ways you will spread kindness to others in our PS 185 community!

Remember: BE KIND


Please join Council Member Justin Brannan, Community Board 10, and NYC Parks to share and discuss your ideas for the future of Russell Pederson Playground. This event will be held virtually.

Breakfast and Lunch pickup from the school for Remote Students is from

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Fight the Flu this year!

This year, flu vaccination is more important than ever because the flu and the virus that causes COVID-19 may both be spreading.  Flu vaccination will help reduce the spread of flu and help ease the burden on our health care system.  Please see the attached flyer for additional information.

ipad loan updates

By August 14, families who borrowed iPads from the DOE will receive an email or text about preparing DOE-loaned devices for the first day of school. Families will be asked to take action to ensure that their child’s iPad is updated and ready to be used for remote learning, including:

  • Turning on the iPad;

  • Reconnecting to internet;

  • Making sure content-filtering in enabled (Zscaler);

  • Signing in to the Learn at Home app; and

  • Using the iPad as a Wi-Fi-enabled, personal hotspot.
