Margaret Lerner, our beloved parent coordinator, was a passionate and respected member of the PS 87 community.  PS 87 was a big part of Margaret's life and to know her was to love her.  To honor her memory, we will be creating a reading garden outside her office to be enjoyed by students.

To contribute to the Margaret Marner Lerner Memorial Fund, click here.

PS 87's school directory is predominantly online this year, which has been both a green initiative and has saved the Parents Association a considerable amount of money.  We hope everyone is making use of this online directory system available through My School Anywhere. Once you sign up, the app can be downloaded to your phone so that the directory is at your fingertips at all times. If you never signed up through the My School Anywhere link, please contact for information on how to do so.

Still, for some, a printed directory is a useful tool. To that end, the PA provided staff with complimentary printed copies and is selling a limited quantity to interested parents for $10 each while supplies last. If you are interested in purchasing a copy, please email
