Goodbye School…Hello Summer Vacation!

As we close out the 2016-2017 school year, the Parents Association would like to say thank you to all the amazing parents that volunteered their time throughout the year. Without you the many things we did for our children would not have been possible. When we as adults give back, it teaches our children to give back even more.

Thank you to those that participated in the PA Feedback Survey. Your thoughts and opinions are very important to us. With your feedback we have learned what was successful and what we’ll work towards improving for the upcoming school year. Please click here for the results from the survey.

What an incredible month May was for the Parents Association! We hosted a luncheon for Teachers Appreciation Week and the teachers and staff were so thankful. We also had our first annual Mother’s Day Plant sale which was very successful. Kids were so excited to come into the front yard and pick out beautiful plants and flowers for their loved ones.

Our International Night was a triumphant evening, thanks to the numerous amounts of families that volunteered to teach us a bit more about their culture and included fun activities like face painting, music, origami and henna. The amount of food donated was more than we expected and our families got to taste foods of many countries & cultures around the world. We hope to continue these great events.

Another successful restaurant fundraiser on the books for the PA. Thank you to those that participated in our Shake Shack Fundraiser. We plan on doing plenty more like this in the upcoming school year…stay tuned!

We will be hosting our final Fitness Funday for the school year on Sunday, June 4th, please click here for flyer. We would like to thank the Wellness Committee for making these monthly fitness Fundays happen for the families of P.S. 196- the school with a healthy heart.

On the June 20th at the Parents Association meeting, we will be having elections for PA Executive Board positions and open SLT seats for the 2017-2018 school year. If you are interested in running for a position, please attend this meeting.

If you have a great idea for a fundraiser, themed dance or anything you think the students would enjoy, please reach out to

Congratulations to the Class of 2017!
You did it and we wish you a successful transition into middle school. Thank you to the 5th Grade Committee and all the parents that helped make the student’s year at P.S. 196 a memorable one.

Wishing you a fun filled summer break…see you in September!
