Thanksgiving Break


Picture Day Reschedule

On Tuesday, November 16, 2021.  Donner Photographic, Inc. was only able to supply two photographers for the day.  They unfortunately were unable to complete taking pictures of all our students in one day.  Therefore,  they have re-scheduled your child's picture day for Wednesday, November 24, 2021.  They have also promised to have all student pictures returned before Christmas.  So, if you planned to give pictures as gifts the Christmas, you will have them in time.
Donner Photographic, Inc. will be here on 11/24 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to complete taking pictures of the remainder of the classes (6).
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Have a great day!

Message From Administration

Welcome to P.S. 68X- The Edward A. Fogel School for Critical Thinking and the Arts.

We are honored and privileged to serve as your school leaders. Collectively, we bring a breadth of pedagogical skills and educational leadership to our school community. Our goal as P.S. 68X’s administration is to bestow the type of leadership that will facilitate a school environment that provides the best possible learning experience that meets the needs of each student. As a result, we collectively work to deliver educational programs that are academically challenging, engage each student by linking the curriculum to prior knowledge and experience, while encouraging our children to find joy in learning and the exploration of new ideas. 

We believe that every child can learn and achieve success and we pledge to provide every child at P.S. 68X with the culturally responsive and quality education that he or she deserves. As a team, we commit to providing our faculty and staff with opportunities to strengthen their practice, fostering a culture of collaborative data driven processes, and shared decision making. 

Our mission at P.S. 68X is to meet the needs of our students by establishing a school culture based on safety, community, and rigorous instruction. We will provide students with the necessary skills, as well as social and academic behaviors that will prepare them to succeed in an ever-changing world. We envision that our students will become capable thinkers, responsible, and accountable citizens. 

Every child deserves a champion, someone who believes in him or her and goes above and beyond to ensure that he or she thrives. We are proud that at P.S. 68X, we are all champions for all of our children!
