Hugo Newman Prep - PS/IS 180 is a community based public school providing quality education to children in grades Pre-K - 8. Our school's vision is to support excellence in teaching, engagement in active student learning and enrichment in developing smart, creative and well rounded citizens. We prepare our students to be life-long learners who will succeed in college and the career of their choice.
Our school community offers numerous enrichment programs that enhance students’ learning, such as the Midori and Friends Instrumental Music Program, Asphalt Green Recess Enrichment Program, Chess in the Schools, Ballet Hispanico Arts and Education Residencies, Jaguar Debate Team, Basketball Teams and more. While PS/IS 180 has received federal Title 1 funding in the past, those allocations are quickly declining, and the school community must find other ways to provide support for programs
Our annual Jogathon is an engaging event for students that encourages physical activity, well being and social stewardship. It also allows for our students to ask their family, friends, neighbors and the community at large to contribute to the enrichment programs supported by the school's PTA. We ask that you consider supporting one or more of our Jaguars as they run laps around our school's play yard track on Global Running Day 2018 - June 6th!
Last year we raised over $15,000 to support programming in the school. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000.
