6th - 8th Grade Students Electives

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students of PS/IS 48 Atlas Academy,

We hope you are having a wonderful summer!

We are excited to announce that we are continuing middle school choice electives again this school year.  We have changed some of our offerings for the 2018-2019 school year.  Electives will adhere to our school-wide grading policy.   All electives (with the exception of band) will change in January.  This will offer our students the opportunity to explore a variety of subjects and talents.

This is an exciting year for our Atlas Academy Middle School Band.  Ms. Maloney has partnered with Carnegie Hall to enrich the instruction and experience of our middle school band.   

All 6th - 8th grade students are asked to follow the link below. Please select your top 3 choices for elective classes for the 2018-2019 school year. Leave blank any electives you are NOT interested in. We will do our best to have all students in one of their top three choices. However, preference will go to our 8th grade students.

All students are asked to complete this form by August 31, 2018.

If you have any questions, you can call the school at 718-447-8323 starting on August 27.


Enjoy the rest of your summer.


Ms. Nuzzela
