Today we celebrated“DADS – Take Your Child to School Day”. A special thanks to all the Dads that helped make the day such a success! Thanks too to the parents and family members that joined us this morning for parents as learning partners. Look for pictures of both events to be posted on our “School Dojo”.
Reminder – on Wednesday October 31st, PS 172 will be hosting its first Costume Parade. Parents can line up along the perimeter of the school for the 9am parade. A letter was sent home containing specific information about the parade that also provided some specific guidelines about appropriate costumes. *If you do not want your child to participate in the parade, simply notify your child’s teacher. An alternate activity will be planned.
The school website continues to be updated and now includes more links for parents and students to access online resources like our Reading A to Z program, Math homework help videos (and a place to get a copy of your child’s math homework), Zearn Math and more. Simply go to PS172.org, click on “Academics”, scroll down to your child’s grade and click on “student links”.
The PTA is sponsoring a Fall Bingo night at PS 172 tonight - Friday October 26th. Join the fun in the auditorium from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
Parents of 4th and 5th graders – your child was sent home with their Individual Score Reports for the state reading and math tests they took in April and May of last school year. Please ask your child for the report. Each report was placed in a sealed envelope.
The PTA will be sponsoring a bake sale in front of PS 172 on Sunday November 4th during the NYC Marathon. So support our PTA, grab a goody and join members of the school community to cheer on 2 of our teachers, Mrs. Laird (kindergarten teacher) and Mrs. Zutter (5thgrade teacher) as they run in the marathon this year!
