SCIENCE FAIR HELP
Our Science Fair is being held during the school day from March 19 - March 21, with our Science Open House on the evening of March 21 from 6pm - 7:30pm.
We are looking for a few parents to help with setup and breakdown after the open house on Thursday night. Please take a look at the following time slots to see if you can help out... As always, we can't do it without your help! SIGN UP
Please note, 3rd - 5th grade families, if your child has a science project, it must be picked up after the Open House. Any projects left over will be discarded after dismissal on Friday, March 23.
Ok parents- we saw you at Parent Teacher Conferences- you said you would do your surveys. We’re taking you at your word. Only 27% of you have done if so far. Let’s get it done for PS 154!
The NYC School Survey went home in backpacks. Each school is required to participate. The survey is completely confidential and gives us a picture of our learning environment from both parent and teacher perspectives. If you lost your survey code, please go on-line and follow the prompts to get a new one. They are due March 23, but please do your part and complete it as soon as possible.

RAISING RESILIENT GIRLS
MON, APR 9, 6:30 - 8 PM IN THE PS 154 MMR
$25 PER PERSON
Raising Resilient Girls is a 1 hour talk by Girls Leadership Co-Founder Simone Marean. The talk will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A session for parents, teachers, and community members.
Girls Leadership speaks to parents and teachers across the country about the challenges girls face today, the reasons why we see girls struggling, and what we can do to help them. In this acclaimed 1-hour talk (followed by a 30 minute Q&A), we share how to help girls practice assertive self-expression, emotional intelligence and healthy relationships, preparing them for a life of personal and social leadership. This engaging presentation covers the development of girl dynamics beginning in preschool through high school.
As written up in Parents Magazine, this talk concentrates on practical advice that can be executed in a real-life setting, such as:
Talking about your own not-so-happy feelings;
Sharing your mistakes;
Helping your daughter to solve her own problems;
The Good Girl Phenomenon and conflict as an opportunity for positive change
This presentation is for adults only.
While this workshop is for adults only, you can visit the Girls’ Leadership website to register for their multi-week mother-daughter classes at PS 154 this spring. Please follow these links to find out more:

EARTH DAY: CLOTHING, SHOE, & TEXTILE DRIVE
APRIL 16-20 IN THE MMR
Textile waste adds significantly to the city’s waste stream -- and yet so much of it can be reused or recycled. During the week leading up to Earth Day, the PTA’s Sustainability Committee will be collecting textiles for reuse and recycling. Get your spring clean on! And help us raise money for our kids at the same time: The PTA will earn a dime on every pound collected.
Please bring in clean clothing, shoes, sneakers, hats, linens, towels, handbags, and belts. Note that we can’t accept scraps, rugs, comforters or pillows.
DROP OFF: Collection bins in PTA Office
