On Wednesday, our fourth grade students did a spectacular job performing in “My Plate the Musical” for their parents and the third grade classes. The musical emphasized the importance of healthy eating and an active lifestyle. The students did a great job. Bravo!
The students completed their final fire drill for 2018. The drill was held between both lunch periods so students were able to wear their jackets. They evacuated quietly and efficiently!
The PTA will host Breakfast with Santa tomorrow (12/15) beginning at 9:30 and ending at 12:00pm. Unfortunately, the event has sold out so tickets will not be available at the door.
This month, classroom teachers competed in a classroom door decoration competition to represent the winter holidays. Students added their ideas, their artwork and some elbow grease to get their doors in shape. The doors look great and have really helped to create a festive atmosphere at the school. The doors were judged this morning and winners will be announced in next week’s notes.
For many, the winter holidays are a time of gift giving and many parents have asked about gifts for their child’s teacher or gifts for their child’s classroom. In response to this, teachers have created amazon wish lists. If you would like to donate a gift to your child’s classroom, go to www.PS172.organd click on the “Academics” tab. Next, access the classroom wish list page, find your child’s class and click on the provided link. We will keep the links active for the remainder of the school year.
It’s time for kindergarten registration. If your child was born in 2014, they are eligible to begin kindergarten in the fall. Apply online at www.nyc.gov/schools/kindergartenor call the school (718) 965-4200 for more information.
The NYC Department of Education immunization requirements state that all children between the ages of 6-months- and 5-years-old must receive one dose of influenza vaccine between July 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018.
