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!
