Goodbye School…Hello Summer Vacation!

As we close out the 2017-2018 school year, the Parents Association would like to say thank you to all the amazing parents that volunteered their time throughout the year. With your support, we were able to do a lot for our children. This past school year we hosted two amazing dances, our annual Halloween Dance and Valentine’s Day dance. We also hosted Paint Night for parents, our Mother’s Day Plant sale, Cook Night, Game Show Assembly, BMX Assembly and many more fun events the for our children.

What an incredible month May was for the Parents Association! We had our second 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.

We also hosted our very first family cook night, students and parents learned to make Caramelized Shallot Risotto, Red Velvet Whoopie Pies and Sweet Potato/Zucchini Noddle with Pesto an Chick Peas. Please click on the recipes to download. The children also got to attend the Game Show Assembly and had an amazing time. On June 5th, the Wellness Committee will be hosting their 2nd Family Cook Night.

We will be hosting our final Fitness Funday for the school year on Sunday, June 10th, so please come join us for some yoga. Please click here for the 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. Click here...

The PA will be hosting their annual teachers luncheon on June 11th to show the teachers and staff how much we appreciate all of their hard work and dedication to our children.

Throughout the year, each grade put on a show for their parents through the Project Arts program the Parents Association sponsors. On June 18th, the 1st grade will be showing their parents all of the hard work they put into their puppetry culminating event. So please make sure to attend if you are a first grade parent.

On the June 19th at the Parents Association meeting we will be holding elections for the PA Executive Board positions and open SLT seats for the 2018-2019 school year. We will be discussing what we have done in the past year and would love it if you were all able to attend. Information is knowledge!

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

Here are a few ways to get involved with the PA:

*Volunteer- We love when parents get involved. 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.

*Donate- Every bit helps. Donations allow us to give back to our children in meaningful ways, whether it’s supporting our amazing after school program, author visits or throwing our amazing Halloween and Valentine’s dance parties. We are so grateful for all the support on our Annual Appeal thus far! We will keep you updated at the next PA meeting.
