Would you like $20 to buy books from Barnes and Noble for your child? Unlock Hearts, NYC Nonprofit, sponsors book-buying experiences for children between the ages of 8-14. On the first Saturday of each month, Unlock Hearts arranges a meeting at a designated bookstore and give students, ages 8-14, a $20 stipend to buy any books of their choice. Go to UnlockHearts.org/student-applicationto apply.
Our school’s Read-A-Thon is set to launch today, February 1st and end on February 28th and PS 172 is gearing up to sponsor a book swap. Kids can trade in their “like new” or “gently used” books and swap them for something “like new” to read. Children will be able to swap up to 5 books and swapped books should be appropriate for their grade level. Book collections will take place on 2/4/19 through 2/7/19. A Flyer was sent home today and posted on Dojo with additional information.
PS 172’s Saturday school program begins tomorrow 2/2 and supports selected students in grades 3-5.
A letter was sent home today detailing our school’s “Respect for All” commitment. Please take some time over the weekend to review the information.
