Clothing & Shoes
Please dress children appropriately for the weather.
You do not need to shop for school supplies for your child. PS 452 purchases necessary items in bulk which we then pass out to students and ask that families pay a supply reimbursement fee. Specific details to come in the August update.
Students participate in P.E., Music, and Art numerous times throughout the week.
