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!
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
THURS, APRIL 26 at 6PM
Come celebrate creative children courtesy of Calliope (muse of poetry)! Bring your rhymes, whims, piths, and gists, and remember that Carl Sandberg said, “poetry is the synthesis of biscuits and hyacinths.”
Long story short: words + kids = fun.
WHEN: April 26th from 6-7pm, or until all foxes have soxes and rhymes have run dry
WHERE: PS 154, MMR
WHY: Because a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose
ALL STUDENTS ARE WELCOME!
Students can read their own poems or their favorite poems.
