April Showers Bring May Flowers…

May is going to be one exciting month!

We would like to thank those parents that purchased their children’s beautiful artwork from Art to Remember, and supporting the PA by doing so. Without your participation in fundraisers like this, we would not be able to give back to our children.

Also a big THANK YOU to the parents that have taken the time out of their busy schedules to help the Parents Association with their many activities. Without you we wouldn’t be able to make any of this successful.

On May 5th, the Parents Association will be hosting a teachers luncheon for Teachers Appreciation Day. Your class parents should have emailed you two blank cards for your child to color in and take to school on Friday, March 5th and give to their teacher. Let’s show our amazing teachers at PS 196 that they are truly appreciated. Please click here for the CARD 1 and CARD 2

Our monthly Family Fitness Fundays continue on Saturday, May 6th with a fitness challenge presented by coaches from E3 Sports. Come, join the fun, for a great workout and to get a glimpse of some of the activities that our students have been doing during active recess (E3 Sports runs that program for us.)

Just in time for Mother’s Day, on May 12th we will proudly be hosting our 1st annual Mothers Day Plant sale where the students and families can purchase beautiful plants for all of their loved ones. The event will start at 8am and will end at 3pm. All children will be visiting the Mother’s Day plant sale throughout the day. The PA is looking for volunteers for the day of the plant sale, if you are available to help, please email the PA at Dina Halili will be chairing this event along with the help Stephanie Cooper.

Come grab a burger or delicious shake at the Shake Shack on May 15th, from 11am-11pm on Austin Street and support our PA. Please click here for flyer…

Our May Parents Association meeting will take Place on Tuesday, May 16th at 7:30pm in the school cafeteria. We will be taking nominations for the PA Board for the 2017-2018 school year. If you are interested in any position on the board and the SLT (School Leadership Team), please come to our meeting. Remember you do not need to be present to be nominated.

Let’s travel around the world in one evening. On May 22nd, the Parents Association will be hosting their annual International Night. This is a great event for our students and their families to get a taste of the cultures in our school. If you would like to represent a country for International Night, please contact the Parents Association’s Vice President, Tasneem Malbari @

We love volunteers! Without the help of parent volunteers, we would not be able to do the amazing events that we do for the students of 196. If you have some spare time, please consider volunteering! Reach out to us at if you interested in helping with an event or if you have an idea for a fundraiser. We depend on parent support and volunteers to make great things happen for our children.
