OUR SCHOOL'S EVENTS ARE COMMUNITY BUILDING
Not only are our events an important part of the PTA’s fundraising activities, PTA events are also about bringing our community together in fun ways to allow everyone associated with P.S. 154 to show their support for our children and their teachers. Your participation helps our children and our community grow!
Follow the school calendar to keep track of events!
The Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) Committee's PS 154 Parenting Book Club!
THURS, FEB 28 at 6:30 pm in the MMR
*Please* join us for the third book club meeting! For this half of the school year, we are doing a deep dive into the work of Dr. Laura Markham, a psychologist, parenting expert, best-selling author and mom who happens to be local to Brooklyn! Her site is https://www.ahaparenting.com/ and her writing and coaching are beautifully aligned with the PS 154 Parent SEL Committee’s goals of parenting through building connection, positive discipline and deepening our children’s and our own emotional intelligence.
Book: “Peaceful Parents, Happy Kids,” by Dr. Laura Markham
We will have 90 minutes to share our thoughts and ideas, and then can continue socializing off site at a TBD location once our time is up.
Book discount from Terrace Books
We have partnered again with Terrace Books at 242 Prospect Park West to offer parents a 20% discount on the purchase of the book. To do so, order the book online through the link and instructions below:
