We had another great week here at PS 172! Mrs. Siskar and Ms. Schaefer worked hard to display an art piece for every student in this year’s Art Show. Special thanks to all the parent volunteers who worked countless hours to mount and label each piece of art. The show was a huge success! Everyone enjoyed our PTA’s ice cream sale too!
Just a reminder… School will be closed on Monday May 27th for Memorial Day! This will be a no homework weekend. Please enjoy this time as a family!
