TRICK OR TREAT FOR UNICEF
UNICEF is a humanitarian organization that helps children around the world, including those affected by the recent hurricanes in the Caribbean and Puerto Rico. Please consider asking your child to “trick or treat for UNICEF!”
Children carry their little orange boxes and collect donations while trick-or-treating. The boxes will be available at Boo Bash on Saturday 10/21 and then in the main office up until Halloween. You can donate money collected online. Or, you can bring it to the collection stations along the Park Slope parade route from 3 to 7pm on Halloween.
THANK YOU SUN DOJO!
Thank you to Sun Dojo and PS 154 parent Laurel Carroll for the fantastic Self-Defense for Kids & Tweens class last weekend. Because the event sold out, you may not have been able to access this class for your child. Sun Dojo is planning a pre-teen and teen class on November 4. Stay updated by visiting Sun Dojo’s website to be aware of future self-defense classes for kids.

SPECIAL FRIENDS AND FAMILY DAY at NOV FAMILY FRIDAY
FRI, NOV 3, 2017, 8:35-9:15 am
We encourage you to invite a grandparent, aunt, uncle, or special family friend to share in the joy of participating in your child's classroom from 8:35-9:15 am (our usual time for Family Friday). We hope this day will be a great opportunity for your child to share a small piece of their school experience with someone close to them. We ask that only one (maximum 2) visitors per child attend, so that there's enough room for everyone's special friends and family. We are looking forward to welcoming your child's special family and friends to PS 154!
