On behalf of the Parents Association, we would like to wish the families of PS 196 a very Happy and Healthy 2017!
As we embark on a new year, the Parents Association is pleased to say that 2016 ended on a high note. We would like to thank all the parents who attended our successful December PA meeting where we welcomed councilwomen Karen Koslowitz to our school and thanked her for generously funding the STEM Cart that will give our children the tools designed to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into their education with hands-on based learning solutions that will prepare the workforce of tomorrow for the high tech careers of today. The PA also informed all parents about our brand new Recess Program that will be starting January 4th. We are so thrilled that our children will have a fun and active recess everyday- YEAH!!
To start off the New Year- Thanks to our wonderful Wellness Council – we will be having our monthly Fitness Funday on Saturday January 14th from 10:00am–12:00pm. This month we will be doing Zumba- what a great way to start off a healthy year!
We also have a lot in store this month as well as the coming months ahead. We are super excited to have a rich educational visit from The Ridgewood Bank Bus on January 9th.
January 17th - Please join us for our monthly PA meeting. Come and see how you can get involved in the Magic of our school. We have special prizes for the first 15 parents to sign in.
The PA is also gearing up to debut their first annual Valentine’s Day Dance on Saturday, February 11th. Children and families are encouraged to come and share in a special evening of dancing and fun activities. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed.
We look forward to celebrating this wonderful New Year of 2017 together with our family at PS196, The School with a Heart.
