Very Important Information!

Dear Parents/Guardians:

I hope you are enjoying your summer and sharing special times with your children. We are excited and already planning for the opening of the
2014-2015 school year.

There will be some changes this year and I would like to take this opportunity to share important information. Please read this letter carefully as it contains information about our mandatory school uniform, daytime schedules and other general information. 


IMPORTANT UNIFORM INFORMATION: Many parents have begun shopping for school supplies and uniforms. As you know, P.S. 36 Rising Stars School is a uniform school and all students, Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade must wear their uniforms every day. It is mandated that students wear uniforms to school.


  • Boys:  Boys wear a light blue shirt with navy blue trousers and a blue tie (optional).

  • Girls:  Girls wear a light blue blouse with navy blue jumper, skirt, or slacks.

  • Boys and girls may wear navy blue sweat pants and sneakers for PE class.  Otherwise, your child must wear a regular uniform.  If your child comes to school and is not in uniform, you will be called to bring in proper uniform clothing.

    Our first day of school is Thursday, September 4th.  Official school hours will be from 8:20 am to 2:40 pm for students in grades K-5.  Breakfast will be served from 7:40 am to 8:10 am –Please make sure your child arrives on time and is picked up on time.  Please be outside at least 5 minutes before dismissal especially on days with inclement weather. Parents of Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students will receive a letter with a special part-time schedule for the first few days of school.

    All students, kindergarten through fifth grade were given a Summer Homework Packet. This completed packet must be returned on the first day of school in order for students to receive their certificates.

    School supply lists vary with each grade and will be given to your child on the first day of school.  You may also access the list using our supply list link to obtain the information specific to your child’s grade.


    I look forward to working together to ensure the positive social, emotional, and academic growth of our children.          See you in September!

    Educationally yours,

    Elvira Maresca
