On behalf of the Parents Association, we would like to wish the families of PS 196 a very Happy and Healthy 2018!

As we embark on a new year, the Parents Association is pleased to say that 2017 ended on a high note. We look forward to celebrating this wonderful New Year of 2018 together with our family at PS196, The School with a Heart.

Welcome to February!

It's cold outside and according to the ground hog, we still have 6 more weeks of winter. How exciting!? On top of that, we are approaching our 100th day of school on February 12th. This year is flying by us...
The Parents Association would like to thank all the parents that took time out of their busy schedules to make the first half of the school year run smoothly. We appreciate all that you do, and we’re sure your children do, as well as their teachers. We look forward to making the second half of the school year just as amazing!
The Parents Associations Second Annual Valentine’s Day Dance Party will be held on Saturday, February 10th, from 5pm-8pm. Please join us for pizza, dancing, photo opportunities, crafts and a Valentine’s Day slime station! And hey…why not bring the ENTIRE family!? If you’d like to volunteer your time before, during and/or after the dance, please contact We love when parents join in on the fun and help make these events perfect for our kids. Please click here for our Valentine’s Day flyer.

Didn’t move and shake enough at our Valentine’s Day Dance? Then come join us on Sunday, February 11th for Capoeira. Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music. It’s lots of fun! So make sure to join us. Click here for info on this Family Fitness Funday.
Our restaurant fundraisers have been very successful. Thank you to the families that continue to support our fundraisers by visiting the participating restaurants. Buffalo Wild Wings was a huge hit! We plan on continuing more restaurant fundraisers by partnering with other local restaurants like Shake Shack for March. We will let you know once the date is confirmed. Stay tuned for more dates.
And please come join us and find out what we have stored for our kids for the rest of the school year at our PA meeting on Tuesday, February 27th.
A reminder that the PA has year-round fundraisers with Smencils and Groovy Lab in a Box. Please click here for our Smencils Fundraiser flyer and here for our Groovy Lab in a box. More information can be found on our website.
Reminder- don’t forget to mark your calendars- there will be mid-winter recess and no school starting February 16th with school resuming on February 26th.
We would also like to wish those celebrating a very Happy Lunar New Year!

Donations allow us to give back to our children in meaningful ways, whether it’s supporting our amazing after school program or throwing our amazing Halloween or uncoming Valentines dance parties.
