Raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, P.S.173 announced plans to raise money and awareness for cancer-related causes. During October, we will hold a weekly bake sale in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Parents please encourage your children to keep their money in their pockets or lunchboxes, in order to prevent them from losing it.

Our school has a new look. This September our students started wearing royal blue polo shirts. These uniforms show that they are part of the P.S.173 family. Wearing it says we’re all in this together, we make a difference together. Also, wearing a uniform shows P.S.173 school pride. The uniforms give students a sense of belonging to our school and create an identity for the school in the community.
Moving forward uniform shirts will be available for purchase at P.S.173 while in stock. When not in stock please allow 2-3weeks for pre-orders.

Today, PS 173 opened its doors to welcome a group of fantastic students and another wonderful school year. With each new year, we have the opportunity to develop and nurture the minds of our students in academics, the arts, physical education and extra-curricular activities. The time we have with our students and their families is very special and a vital part in us working together. Coming together as a school community- Parents, Administrators, Teachers and Staff- we form a partnership in education and the development of our students.
As we look ahead to the coming year, we invite you to be actively involved in your child(ren)’s learning.
We look forward to a new school year. I know that by working together, we will ensure that our students will have a successful and positive experience. Welcome back!

Fifth grade moving up ceremony is a time to celebrate a major milestone! Our kids grow up fast, so lets celebrate this milestone. These are times to reflect on and be proud of our kids’ accomplishments and to look with excitement to the next phase of development. A time to laugh, to cry, and to celebrate.
Kindergarten students at took to the P.S.173 stage and celebrated the end of kindergarten in the Moving Up Ceremony. Parents, family, and friends filled the auditorium and enjoyed the moment. Students sang some songs and then each shook hands with principal Garcia and assistant principals Kryoneris and Delgado. Great times !
Welcome to our end of the year honor roll, a celebration of student academic excellence!!!
We have been recognizing our outstanding students across a wide spectrum of academic fields and creative expression through our Student of the month and Honor Roll ceremonies .
It has become a favorite of our and one we look forward to greatly throughout the year.
One of our favorite aspects of these celebrations is the chance to experience some of the fruits of our students’ scholarly and creative activity.
We’ve been witnesses to the amazing work of our students year round.
That is really what this end of the year celebration of student academic excellence is all about—we’re celebrating not only the fruits of academic excellence, but the creative and intellectual process that led up to them receiving multiple Honor Roll and Student of the Month honors.
Congratulations to all our honorees, and best wishes for much continued success!
Our outstanding students are honored as Senior CLASS Award winners. We love it! From fall to spring, the 2017-18 academic year gave us some incredibly memorable moments. So, to honor these students we’d like to highlight their achievement with the Senior CLASS Awards. Take a look!
